3 days later......

For the past few days we have had great weather and since we just got back home, once again, I decided that before we took the MH back to storage I'd start the cleaning and waxing process. So, 3 days later and here's the results. Used mostly hand waxing with the exception of the compartment doors which I used a power buffer. This morning I'm sitting here with arms and knees feeling like they have never seen exercise before. Wife did the inside cleaning, which I think she had the better of the options, and finished in 1 morning. Maybe she's just more efficient than I am. Anyway here's some shots of the finished product....

Mine is on the to do list in 2 weeks. Will a clay bar damage any of the stripes on the paint. I was working on the front grill area last week, & seems to have some bubbles in it. I don't remember seeing the bubbles before, but they could have been there. Would the friction of a clay bar do this?

Looks Great!


Thanks

Looks Great, what did you use. just washed ours real good, getting ready to put a good coat of wax on for the winter myself. Might have to wait a few weeks, the wife wants to run down to Nashville over the long Veterans day weekend.

Thats a nice shine!
The claybar will only remove small contamiants of dirt & such. It will not damage the decals or cause them to bubble.
We traveld from St Louis to Ft Worth this past weekend. I did the front end of our MH from the drivers front door to the front passengers side window. It was covered with bugs. I wanted to get them off before the sun baked them on. That took me a couple of hours, I am sure it would have been 2 days if I had to do the whole MH. I used bug remover & boat/rv paste wax yesterday. I use detailers spray & buff wash/wax about once every 2-3 months . It takes me about 3 hours to do the whole MH. I do this between hand waxing, it sure does help when it is time to do the big job.

What kind or brand wax did you use on that clear coat finish?

The clay bar also does a good job of removing hard water spots. Had a CG sprinkler coat the front streetside slide with hard water spots. Clay bar removed them with little effort.

I now carry a set of sprinkler shields.

I just finished using that "ReJex" on ours... beautiful job and not "too bad" to put on and off!!! It is very popular with airplanes and boats...... Figured I would try since "wax" is a temporary solution cause it melts off in heat??

OOOOWEE, that's sharp.

I notice you have the American Coach logos on it. When did you get your's? It's got to be one of the first Revolutions with those logos.

For those wanting to know what wax/cleaner I use....

Meguiars cleaner wax for the inital cleaning then an application of Mothers California Gold which is a carnauba wax. Both go on and off very easily especially as the clear coat is relatively new, been washed many times and no oxide to speak of. The carnauba wax puts a very nice sheen to the finish. I also had to use rubbing compound in a few places to remove clear coat overspray.
The American Coach logo was installed at the last trip to Decatur for service work. You might note that the HP rating is no where in sight as they have not gotten the new decals in as yet. Also, most of the Revolutions will not have the AC labeling as they have not gotten enough in stock to apply to those on the line.
In the process of applying the American Coach labels they remove all Fleetwood labels which surprised me.

I know I keep saying this but "What a beautiful coach!!"
