Hey Dave, thanks for the up to date info. I apologize, it was me who said Arizona, incorrect in my recall. I read so much here that things might get mixed up once in a while. Not all the time, just once in a while.
Thanks again.

I haven't read the whole thread, but when I read the thread's title, a simple and direct answer sprang to mind.

A ceramic coating is good for longer than the manufacturer says it's good for. If you want to maintain its gloss and hydrophobicity, use a silica-based spray. The new silica-based sprays that've recently become available were introduced to the market to maintain ceramic coatings.

Here are several such sprays:

I have experience with only CarPro HydrO2. I'm certain it's an excellent product, and I'm sure the others are, too.

If you have time and energy to burn, you could top your current coating with CarPro Gliss, which was designed to top a standard ceramic coating. It is a coating itself, but it's designed to increase the durability, shine, and hydrophobicity of the main coat. I coated my wife's SUV with CarPro CQuartz and Gliss. Its hydrophobicity is unreal; water just won't stick to the treated surfaces at all.

Coating a motorhome with a base ceramic coating (and doing the required prep) and then topping that coating with Gliss is for highly motivated, athletic gluttons for punishment.

But that would be the absolute state-of-the-art clearcoat finish one could have on a motorhome. And then about every six months spray and wipe (or just spray and rinse, as is the case with HydrO2) with a silica spray.

Dave, what was the name of the mobile detail company and where are they. I plan to be up near Lake Winona next summer. I would be interested in having it done.
