Paint fading.

My 2012 Forrest River Crusader 5'er front cap is fading and nothing I've tried is helping? Any ideas would be appreciated

Is that a decal or paint? I have seen threads on here about two products for shine. One is "Shine On" (www.shineononline.com) or Zep Wet floor look floor wax from home depot. Both products are just clean and wipe on multiple coats.

That would be my question too. Full body paint normally lasts many years...decals may last years or may last months.

Do a search for "Zep Wet Floor Look/finish" and "Red Max Pro #3" both are available at Home Depot, Lowes, Menards etc. These are "finishes" NOT a Wax!

You sure it is the paint fading or is that the clear coat going bad? Ford had some trucks that started looking the same way when the clear coat started to turn loose on the fiberglass hood. We have a rollback with clear coat peeling in chunks and it looked like that
