Paint Chipping

Has anyone had paint chipping I understand the gutter spout thing. Mine is chipping between the door and the slide at the top of the rv. Its both the black and the gold paint. I asked Redwood about it, they were surprised. I asked for touch up paint in an aerosol can and I would do it myself as warranty authorized paint shops arnt on every corner. They told me we don't have any and our paint suppler doesn't do Aerosol cans. "we can get you the paint codes and you can have some made up" Customer service is alive and well in these United States"

Realistically, you can't "touch up" with aerosol spray, because it doesn't fill in the chip. The 4 color touch up paint jars that came with our Redwood that have a brush are exactly perfect for touching up chips. I've used it on a few places on the front already.

Came in a pouch with my manuals from the factory. If you didn't buy new its probably long gone, or if it sat on a lot for a while.

Any Dealer should be able to get it. If you don't like the original Dealer, hit another one (Any Dealer that sells a Crossroads product can order from Redwood).

Glad this came up. We didn't receive a paint touch up kit, but now I know to ask my dealer for one. Thanks.

From what I can see, it is chipping off the roof membrane. Could be it was not "prepped" correctly when they painted it ??
Also, did you buy it used ?? Still should be able to get some touch up paint.
