As any RV owner knows, the sun can be your friend and foe. While it brings warmth and light that makes outdoor activities more enjoyable, it can also cause fading to the paint on your RV. Fading is caused by UV rays breaking down the molecules in the paint, which causes a loss of color over time. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to prevent this from happening or at least slow down the process so your RV looks excellent for years to come! In this blog post, we will discuss how you can protect your RV’s paint from fading in the sun.
One of the first and most important steps you can take is to park your RV in a shady area whenever possible. If that’s not an option, consider investing in a shade canopy or carport to provide some protection from the sun’s harsh rays. You may also want to invest in window coverings for your RV, as the sun can cause damage to the interior as well.
Another way you can protect your RV’s paint from fading is by washing and waxing it regularly. A good car wash soap is a must, but try to avoid harsh detergents that contain abrasives or solvents that may strip away wax and sealants. After you’ve washed your RV, apply a coat of wax to seal in color and help protect it from UV radiation.
Finally, consider investing in paint protection products such as ceramic coatings or a clear bra. These are applied directly to the surface of your RV and form a hard protective layer that deflects UV rays and helps keep your paint looking vibrant. At On The Spot, we have several ceramic coating options available with different levels of warranties.
By following these simple steps, you can help keep your RV looking its best and protect it from the sun’s damaging UV rays! Enjoy your summer adventures, and keep your paint looking great for years to come. And, of course, give us a call if you’d like to leave the washing and protecting to professionals!
