Hi again,,,only thing is paint with clearcoat...had mine done 5 yrs ago and only do a spray wax once a yr...10 minute job...
You can try all the brainwash waxes and compounds but will never last...do it right the first place and enjoy your trailer.

Here's a product that will revive the color. A good inexpensive first try. I'd give it a shot. https://www.owatrolusa.com/product/marine-polytrol/

Dont waste your time...it is dark gelcoat and will fade soon after doing anything but paint....stop at a boat yard that fixes and paints fiberglass boats and get their opinion...bet they say paint...

It's easy to say don't waste your time. But for those that don't have the ability to come with $1200 to $2000 to paint the front cap, it's an inexpensive solution.

What you can do is try the gelcoat repair and if it looks good, take it in and have it clearcoated right over the decals. May be cheaper if you tape it off and cover it...

We used Poly Glow, that was 2 months ago and it hasn't faded yet........
Here are the before and after shots, the after being two months after we (I) applied it.
Needs to reapplied every 6 months but if you do that no need to remove any oxide again...
