Basement Door Paint Question

The paint on my white basement doors is not looking to good. The surface is kind of rough and is getting darker. The picture below is not my MH, but mine is just like it with the same paint scheme. Look at the basement door just behind the front wheel. Mine is doing the same although not as bad yet. Anybody have a clue what causes this? Is there a fix other than a repaint? I've noticed this in pictures of other Tiffins as well. Some older, some newer.

Any input will be appreciated.

Without seeing a real closeup of the door, itís hard to tell. Did you try buffing it out with a good buffer and a light compound? If that does not work, then it looks like a paint job is in your future.
Whatís behind that door? Seems odd that only that door is affected.

Thanks for the response garykk. It has a slightly gritty feel. It not just this door. If you look close the other doors with white on them are actually getting dark too. In my case, what's behind the door is my inverter.

I did try some Meguiar's Fiberglass Oxidation Remover and Meguiar's RV and Marine Cleaner Wax, but it didn't do much if anything. In a couple places you can see where it looks like someone has tried some type of cleaner and there are runs in the dark stuff.
