Spent some time going thru your website, your recommendation of
"microfiber" towels erodes my confidence in all your suggestions.
As you know, microfiber towels are 100% polyester, or a blend of
polyester and nylon. I have found them to be completely non-absorbent,
since they are plastic fibers. I also believe they can scratch the finish.
Although most are low denier extrusions, it is still plastic. The big
push to polyester is that the feed stock is cheap natural gas based,
nylon is oil based, and used to be a lot more costly than polyester.
Cotton is the standard of absorbency and rarely
can cause fine scratches, unless it has been very poorly processed.
It also is the most costly fiber of the three, but I think it is worth it.

Nick I just used your Carnuba wax and sealant and final step on my fifth wheel and it turned out beautiful even using.......... the dreaded microfiber towels.......... I think you may need to tell the guys about how your products are with our graphics.

I know you have a product that is specifically made for decals but how does the formulation of your other products waxes and sealants work with decals since many brands use them for graphics and it's an ongoing issue for many owners and they do effect the appearance and resale of our units.

My experience was just the opposite, I was always afraid to use them,for the same reasons you posted, I received a dozen of them with the water less car wash I bought after intense reading/studying up on it, and have been using them for a couple of years now. The only wish I had researched them better years ago..........cotton bath towels for drying are done, alls I use is micro fiber towels now, and can report no paint problems from using them.
As far as them adsorbing water, I was amazed at the water one can mop up and hold........

You have to buy the good microfiber cloths. I bought some at Pottery Barn...no good. Sams clubs work very well

Microfiber is far more gentle on scratch sensitive clear coat finishes because the fibers are not as stout as terrycloth.

Cotton is great for drying yourself off after getting out of the shower, but it's not something I would use to remove wax, polish, or compound from a delicate finish.

But of course, as the saying goes, find something you like and use it often.

Wax

I have a 10 year old Bounder with gel coat that is very oxidized and faded decals. What would be the order of restoration? Decals first or gel coat?

I would restore the decals first using McKee's RV Vinyl Decal & Graphic Restorer and then proceed with a two-step compounding/all in one to restore the gel coat using our Heavy-Cut Oxidation Cleaner followed by our All-In-One Cleaner Wax & Sealant.

Your RV will look GREAT!

I had previously posted this photo for you concerning my decals. When the weather finally gets better here in VT my goal is to go after the exterior with a full head of steam. I am looking seriously at the Porter Cable 7424 polisher. I now need to know what materials I need to wax and polish my 2001 Bounder. My belief is that i have a Gelcoat. I also need to know whether I should try to restore my decals before or after and if before .... should I be waxing and polishing over the decals ?

I also need to know what pads i need for the best results.

Thanks
