Oxidation cleaner

I hace a 2017 class C where a few decals were already peeling. So I removed those bad decals. I cant beleive how much of fading/oxidation has taken place in only 2 1/2 years.
What have others used to polish the paint to try and get the two areas to come close to matching again?

A very good dual action orbital buffer and McGuire's Marine Oxidation Remover. Then some good wax and sealant. The problem seems to be quite common with non-painted models.

We have just used Meguiar's M4916 Marine/RV Heavy Duty Oxidation Remover with a variable speed buffer with wool pads. This actually brought the shine back and restored some of the color. Then we used MEGUIAR'S M6332 Flagship Premium Marine Wax which really brought back the shine.

I was almost ashamed of the VEGAS, after only three years it looked like ten-fifteen years... The difference was remarkable, as the coach looks almost new (especially the front end cap top which looked more like the rubber roof instead of fiberglass)
