Prime it with an Exterior Oil Base Wood Primer… then finish coat it with Sherwin Williams Porch & Deck Enamel, use the color that you want… give up the staining attempts…

Reds are notorious for premature fading. To help use a good quality acrylic solid stain, acrylics last a little longer when compared to oil stains. As mentioned paint might be an option, only if your wood is suited to paint.
