Is it possible to repair Diamond Shield

These are the only blemishes on our 14 coach and wonder if there is a way to repair or clean up. It appears that the diamond shield has been torn off and the dirt collects around the edges where it's paint only then the diamond shield. I thought about cutting it out but seems the problem would just continue and I risk cutting into the paint.

I am trying to figure out where the blemish is on your coach. Is it on metal or fiberglass.

Carefully cut out the bad parts with an exacto blade cutting only the plastic. Then reapply a coat of wax on on it every 3-6 months. Lots cheaper than replacing.
My '15 looks brand new.

Thanks for the response, I will give that a try. I assume you've done this yourself? When the coach is clean these really stand out although, I may be a bit particular.

In addition to cutting off any curled plastic from it, I also "sealed" the perimeter of the hole with a clear nail polish.

Two years ago a rock hit the front of my coach and created a cut into the Diamond Shield. I got a small piece of Diamond Shield from a local dealer and just applied it over the damaged area. A small circle of shield solved the problem of water penetration and edges fraying. If your looking for the repaired area you can see it but most people don't even notice it.
The dealer did not even charge me for the scrap piece of Diamond Shield.
