I would suggest NOT
using Barkeeper's Friend, excellent cleaning product though it is...... you will get a matt finish.
Any automotive cutting compound
will remove the faded appearance and restore the shine, which must be immediately preserved with a wax, preferably a high temp wax like Finish Kare FK1000P Hi-Temp Paste Wax with the big white shark on the tin. You might have to buy it online, but you'll never use another wax on your RV, car or boat if you get it. Any wax will preserve the shine though, but if you neglect to seal the surface with a wax, the paint will re-oxidize within weeks, and every time you remove an oxidized layer you reduce the thickness of your coachwork paint.
