Fading paintwork

Purchased our 2003 Winnebago Adventurer last February,immaculate. Went back to the UK for the summer in May after fitting a new cover to the vehicle to protect. On our return this month after removing the cover, most of the white paintwork has gone off white and dull, also fine scratches have appeared, yet there was no movement in the cover. Can you suggest a reason for the discoloration and how to overcome the problem also the dullness, without having to continually polish it as I am sure if I did that every year there will be no paint left

I've never used or purchased a cover for our Class A since I've heard about the problems they create.

We use a product called Rejex on ours and try to apply it twice a year but we could probably get away with applying it once a year.

Look up all the threads on Red Max Pro, and the comparable Home Depot product.

I think if it was put away after having been waxed with a top of the line wax you would of not experienced the yellowing. I think even with a cover the heat build up can still have effects even though it was blocked from direct rays. I've owned Motorhomes over 30 years and have never experienced that problem . Might not be your answer but something to think about.

As previously mentioned, follow the procedure for cleaning and applying "floor wax" to your unit. The results are remarkable!

Here's the info you need!
