How to fix cracked u0026 faded RV graphics. Easy DIY job

In today’s, HowTo, DIY, RV video, I'm going to share how to fix cracked & faded RV graphics. We have a 2012 Winnebago Vista 35F RV Motorhome and it had a few cracked and faded vinyl graphics. In this video, I’m going to cover how we fixed two of them by painting them.

One of you asked this question:
You used three methods (eraser, vinyl decal, paint). Which one did you prefer and why? (Time? Effort? Potential screw up? Cost? End result?)

My reply:
Good question:
1) Eraser best method and cheaper (a couple of wheels, then compound, polish and RejeX) lots of labor, have to have a high power electric drill but will never have to be dealt with again. I myself would only use this method if the existing graphics are really gone and beyond repair. As I explained in the video, I did this to one of my graphics that was beyond repair.
2) Going over existing decal with todays high UV resistant vinyl decal material is a good alternative and easier, but expensive and if you make a mistake your screwed and have to do it again. Then it's more money again.
3) Painting is the cheapest, takes longer, but results are pretty darn good. I was totally satisfied with the outcome. Not perfect but a whole lot better than it was. Will last years if you protect well and often with RejeX.
