I have a 2005 Adventurer (35A) and the "W" decals underneath the lettering "Adventurer" on the sides are getting brown patches of discoloration. Anyone else having this problem or having a solution??

I have had this problem with my 01 jouney.I have treid alot of waxes and cleaners.the one that i found to work the best for discoloring and works good is STAR BRITE liquid rubbing compound for medium oxidation. then follow it up with STAR BRITE spray way all my decals look new I compound and waxed my unit with star brite over the 4th of july weekend and it still looks good I hope this helps you. I found star brite at (auto-zone)or there website is www.starbrite.com

I am a HUGE advocate of using a cover...especially in the high altitude up here. I have seen 2 year old motorhomes that were uncovered and their graphics already are discolored and paint that is fading. We use the ADCO with TyVek cover and when we remove it for our trips, our paint and graphics look as new as the day we bought it.

I dont know if you have full body paint, or gelcaot but we don't use car wax on decals as the wax will dry out the decals. Use Protect-All if you want to protect them.

star-Brite is used to restore fiber glass and decals on boats and Motorhome. (protect-All) didnt work for me and this is my 3rd Motorhome I have never heard you shouldnt wax your Motorhome it is to big of a investment just to let go.

If you get to the point where you have to replace the decals, Mobility RV stocks all of the decals. Haven't bought from them personally but know a friend who has.

I'm Ron and Joan's friend and have bought recently from Mobility RV. They're good to deal with and they have OEM decals and graphics.

I have a 2001 Suncuiser and also just recently replaced some decals from Mobility. Excellent people to deal with. I had a local body shop do the removal/replacement and they were impressed with the decals I brought them.

One other option is to remove the decals and leave them off. They come off fairly easy, I used a newer product from 3M . I removed the majority of my W and vectra decals. IMO our coach looks better without all the decals.

Has anyone painted the old decals with an automotive paint? Some people say you cannot and some say you can if done correctly.

Comments?
