Graphics

I have a 2005 3400RL we love it and are on a trip to Nova Scotia the unit is working well but the graphics are getting dull what options do i have. Keystone no longer carries them and what wax will return that nice white luster

Nothing I know about that will bring back 11 year old vinyl graphics. If somebody else knows I eagerly await.

No saving them. If they are still fairly intact a graphics/wrap shop may be able to take pictures and reproduce them. I managed to get new decals while they were still available from Keystone. I did go to a shop first. They said they could take a pic and make a new front decal for something like $400. Otherwise they can make some from stock pictures/graphics.

You also asked about the nice white luster so I am assuming that you are talking about the fiberglass. As far as the front and rear caps are concerned if they are faded it is almost futile, you can get them white but they most likely will not shine. the fiberglass sides I use Nu Finish and elbow grease. If they are extremely faded you may want to try to buff it with some 3M Perfect-it and then use the Nu Finish. My front and rear caps are faded I have tried to buff them, shined for about a month then faded right back out. I have yet to fined a solution for the caps. I am pretty sure someone here will know what to do. Oh by the way my graphics are bad also never waxed then until 2013 then I started to use Pledge on them and it seems to have slowed down the degradation of the vinyl. Might just be a coincidence.

Here is the condition of our mountains on the out going 2011 Montana High Country 323RL. This is one of the reasons we decided to bite the bullet and upgrade. This decal was the worst of the decals on the 5th wheel but others were peeling as well.

We heard that in the 2011-2012ish time frame that Keystone had trouble with their graphics so I called the factory. Because we purchased our 2011 in 2012, we were just at their 4 year limit and they were very willing to help us out with replacement graphics. They are sending replacements for some of the graphics but the mountains are no longer available. So.......New Montana 3721RL for us! I will give the decals I receive from Keystone to the dealer and they can have at it.

I bought graphics on eBay earlier this year and so far so good. They are not identical but close enough. I only got the Montana so far but might order the mountain for front cap next.

Has anyone ever tried taping off and painting over the graphics? A guy on the Ford Truck forum did this, changed colors from blue to earth tones in the process, and it appears to look great!
