Can your cleaner wax and wax products be used in the sunshine?

I'd rather spend the extra time up front keeping it clean and waxed than risk damaging the finish with a cleaner/polish product.
The type of clear coat used on RVs is very, very hard. It's formulated this way to offer long lasting UV protection. The abrasives found in our polishes are so small that you can't even feel them. High quality products = high quality abrasive technology. You don't "feel the grit" like you would in a bottle of polish that costs $9 at your local parts store. Put it this way, such little material is removed (when using the proper foam polishing pad) that you can't even measure it with a paint thickness gauge.

We offer a non-abrasive wax, but if you never use any type of abrasive cleaner, then you're not getting the full benefit of the wax because you're simply applying it over embedded dirt, road film, etc. Unless your RV is brand spankin' new off the lot, then you should use our AIO Cleaner Wax & Sealant. Top it with our Carnauba Sealant Wax for longer lasting protection.

You sure can.

Here I am polishing Bob McKee's Newmar Dutchstar using AIO Cleaner Wax & Sealant.

Our new Salem Hemisphere 356QB has the duller finish fiberglass walls. Will using an orbital with a cleaner wax make shinier spots from different time and pressures used as you wax it? We've always had the high gloss sides on our RV's.


Thanks

If it's dull from the factory, then that's just the way the surface is finished. Polishing it will not create a shiny surface. It's still important to wax it though. I would recommend using our Wash & Wax RV Shampoo and our Final Step Detail Wax if you want to take the simple approach.

Who uses Zip floor wax on out side walls of your rig? I put it on roof, it's easy and looks great!

I received my "RV wash and wax in a bucket" care kit from Mckees today, and I am anxious to try it. However it is 32 degrees here, it it needs another 32 or so for me to do it. I think I will take it to Florida with me in January, and demo it for all of the other members of the RV park.
I used ZEP high traffic floor polish on my fiberglass roof last spring as it was in a mildewed and rough condition, and I was frustrated with the brown streaks down the sides after a rain. After scrubbing, I put on 5 coats with a floor mop, and the roof looks great, and there are no more brown streaks after a rain. However, as I expected, there has been a slight yellowing from sun exposure over the summer. It doesn't matter to me so much as it is on the roof, however, I would be upset if it was on the white sidewalls of the RV. I plan to put several renewal coats on the roof next spring. Warning: the roof is much more slippery when it is wet, than it has ever been before.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts Bob!

If your roof is fiberglass, I would consider applying our Carnauba Sealant Wax. I have a feeling this will work much better than the floor polish.

For quite some time now I have been looking for that miracle cure for my decals. If you click on this photo you'll be able to see the fading of my graphics much better. In you advertisement for the RV Vinyl and Graphic Restorer it mentions class B & C. No mention of class A ????? Regardless will it work on my class A and if so will it cure my very faded graphics ?

Sorry for the confusion, we'll have to update our website copy....

To answer your question, *YES* McKee's RV Vinyl Decal & Graphic Restorer is safe and effective for the graphics on your RV.

I would plan on applying it heavy or wet, because the decals on your RV look very faded. It will absorb a lot of the product, so it will take several applications before the decals look like new again.

I recently took delivery of a new Thor ACE and need to create an RV wash kit to maintain it. The plan at the moment is to store it outside uncovered. What products of yours would you recommend for a complete kit. Also are any of your products recommended for a non-fiberglass roof? Thanks in advance.

Ditto with a Thor ACE 27.1.

Bumping in the hope I might get a response from McKees RV
