Not sure what kind of reaction the adhesive in the graphics would have with the solvents in the paint.

Some earlier Keystone models did have problems with peeling graphics but it seems like the newer ones do not. Unless yours are starting to peel and fade, I don't see a great deal to be gained by having your whole unit clear-coated with some kind of "diamond" finish.
I think dealers try to sell you this "never wax again" stuff along with the extended warranty. You didn't mention about the cost of having this done but I would imagine it is not cheap! I know it's a lot of work but a good waxing once or twice a year will go a long way in preserving and maintaining the finish on your RV.
