I had it on my previous coach and I did not think it protected anything. It started to peel off in spots.

But this other coach that I bought in 03 come with an acrylic shield custom made by Summit Products. This shield has been fantastic and after ten years it still looks brand new. The clarity is like glass.
I notice that Country Coach at one time was also installing some, but it was like a plexi-glas that would dull up, and actually looked ugly. But the acrylic material is the way to go. They are expensive, but a lot better then the 3M stuff.

I should have been more specific on the matter, I use Turtle Wax white polishing
compound. It also can remove minor scratches from auto clear coat paint. I went
very gently with a terry towel on three stains on the 3M shield and they all
came out with no adverse affect on the film. I use the 303 Protectant all
season long for cleaning and maintenance.

I just bought a 2004 HR Endeavor with the Diamond shield and it is cracked all over. It looks awful, we almost didn't buy it because of it. It is cracked and peeling and gets water stuck in parts of it. I've never wanted someone to back into me as much as I do now (just joking). I would like to see what a good shield looks like.

No telling how it was maintained, I'll take a picture of my 08 and post it
as soon as I can. In my opinion, it is not the product, rather how it has
been maintained and what it has been exposed to over time. Obviously,
nothing last forever and a 9/10 year old coach has seen a lot.

I'm the OP. just got off the phone with my buddy with the paint damage. $3,800 to repair all the pits into the fiberglass, sand, paint, clear, etc.
Meanwhile, I wiped mine down and had a beer.
Try to live up to your dogs opinion of you.

Bug-off is the best thing going to remove the bugs on a front end of RV. Have used it for several years, it requires elbow grease to use. Wet front down, spray on Bug-off, let it sit for 2-3 minutes, scrub area good, rinse off, might have to use it second time. Works well, then use protectall protectant and use diaper to wipe off the excess and it will shine like wax, works great to make the next set of bugs easier to get off.
