I should add that I used the 3m cut polish for marine/gel coat use then went with a fine cut polish and fine pad to remove swirls then used Klasse high gloss sealant glaze. This is for people that don't have to replace the cap.
Caution!
Be careful with a buffer, it can burn through the gel coat if not used properly! If you don't know how to cut polish then pay a pro to do it.

If it re-oxidizes soon I will just clear coat it next year, we'll see how the glaze works. Once a year application i'm OK with if it works well.

Finally have a service appointment to leave my trailer to get the front cap replaced. We'll take it over Thursday morning, and they will probably have it about 3 weeks (some of that time will be waiting for the parts to arrive). We will probably check out a Forest River that they have on the lot while we are there. A couple of feet longer than ours, but the floor plan is almost identical. A couple of things I like is that you can walk on the roof, and the black water tank is a bit larger. We aren't really seriously considering purchasing a new unit, but I am curious about this one. May as well look while we are there.

Oh, oh. I smell a wallet that is going to be lightened.

Mark, I'm looking at the Vivilon link you posted... The hand apply solution would be perfect for fellow Crossroads owners with cap fade out of warranty but...Holy Moly, this stuff is expensive...$300/quart. You know anyone that has used it and what the results were?

The product was recommended by my son who was an auto body tech. He use the product when he was out in Houston getting trained. Said it did a pretty good job. Don't know of anyone who actually used it, but It seems like a cheaper way to go then paying for a full cap paint job. The prices I heard for the paint job ranged from $1000 to $2000.

Yep. We pick up our new Forest River unit next Thursday.

Congrats on your new trailer. That's exactly why I stay away from RV Dealerships

Lloyd, if you gather enough members here, maybe we could raise your storage barn to fit a new 5th wheel in. How many guys do you need to lift it up?

So far it has. Sometimes I miss the CR trailer, but I like the fact that I can walk on the roof of the Forest River, and I like the slide mechanism better on the FR. We just got back from a little over a week trip up into Ontario, and the rig did fine. We had electricity but had to use the fresh water tank and water pump. Rain the first couple of days but after that the weather was fine. I'm leaving tomorrow for an extended camping trip to Texas. Well, actually it is a music festival and I'll just use the trailer for sleeping. I will have electricity and water though. Always a fun time out there.
