2004 National Seabreeze waxing

New owner here... just curious, have any of you applied the Zep's floor wax to this model or similar model? Or should I stick to the traditional methods of wax and elbow grease?

For the front, back and sides stick with traditional.

I used Zep on the roof and it came out great. Waxed and buffed the sides and compartment doors with regular wax, may look for something that will last longer in the future.

I agree with others, hate the work but right thing to do, I considered ZEP-ing but the removal would be a nightmare in my opinion. I can get the side walls sparking like new, but the front, back and compartment doors are another story, after 6 years in the Florida sun before I got it, they were pretty dull. When I got it I rented a warehouse for a month and did wet sand, buff and polish to gel coat followed by 2 coats of carnuba wax and had her looking great, sadly did not hold up well, but is many times better than when I met her. Now I just keep up semi-annually with cleaner wax (I like 3M products) and she looks great, some folks mistake it for new.

Not fun but right way to do it. I machine apply the cleaner/wax and buff out with terry cloth towel, after 5 boats and 5 rv's I have tried many methods and settled on this.

Waxing

I have a 99 Tropical and it looked really rough until I give it the Poly-Glow treatment. After a year it still shone and looked great. I have given it the maintenance coat now and it looks like new. I've read where people have used the Zep floor wax but it won't have the sun blockers the Poly-glow has. I would be afraid the Zep wouldn't work and would have to take it off, that would be a lot of work. I"m sold on Poly-Glow as I have tried waxes and the blue compartment doors have lasted maybe a couple months before going dull. Good luck in what ever you do.
