2007 Select Suite owners

My graphics are starting to deteriorate. We really try to wash & keep the rv clean as much as possible. All my side graphics are shrinking & curling. I emailed Drv and they have made a partial offer to replace. I would have to pay the labor. I'm just wondering if any other 2007 Select owners have had problems. They now paint the Selects because "graphics peel & crack". (a quote off their website) Well, duh! Anyone else have this issue?

The small graphics are coming apart on the front cap. We are in the LA area and all that sunlight may be the problem. I think I can put them on myself when I get them from DT.

Mine are showing shrinkage, but have not peeled as of yet. I do keep it garaged when not in use. I am sure in time they will peel as well.

I was told by a auto detail shop owner about 12 years ago to use natural carnauba wax without petroleum distillates on all of my decals to prevent cracking and peeling. He said Carnauba wax keeps the decal adhesive and material from drying out and shrinking and any wax with petroleum distillates will dissolve the adhesive over time. It worked on our last two fifth wheels that sat outside year round and never had any cracking or peeling. Owned first one for 7 years, the second for 6. Am doing same on our MS emblems (stripes are painted).
