    Truck is a 2018 Cavalry Blue. Today while washing I found a white feathering pattern all along the black roof trim. Has anyone else had this issue? I can’t tell if it’s stained or faded

    My 2017 has the same issue, it is basically oxidation of the plastic. You can get a cleaner wax or equivalent and take it off, but it will come back.

    I've always used Mother's VLR (Vinyl Leather Rubber) for weather stripping.

    That FL sun is not easy on things. I have some 303 Trim Restorer that I used on my Subaru rubber trim when I lived in FL. It made a significant difference and protected it pretty well. I applied it about 3 times a year.

    Pull them off, scuff them up with some 1000 grit and paint them with some black trim paint. If done correctly it will outlast the polish and wax or other coatings. Then double side them back down with a 3m double sided tape.
