Hey Kent , I'd help you but I'm too far away now. Missed your chance in May. Anyway, a lot of guys on the Yahoo Bounder have used Poly Glo with great results. I know yours will look great too.

So the defective part is maybe the gelcoat? This is a 2003 model.

I can't work on it in direct sunlight? or not?

But, now, you are in this with me, so if I have problems, I'm gonna call YOU!

I'll have to get it done this weekend cause I don't dare show up at the Boomers Rally next weekend in a filthy moldy coach!

Attention: anyone that wants to come help, my address is........
LOL ! I wouldn't steer you wrong...it really is easy to use. It's not quite as much work as waxing..and nothing sticks to it. A few tips.....Read the directions carefully..mix the cleaner EXACTLY as it recommends. You will be AMAZED at what rolls out of that gelcoat. Let it dry, and start applying. The first couple coats will "wick" into the gelcoat, and the shine develops with each coat. In no time at all, your coach will look better than new. I had about 24 hours invested in doing this to my coach.. BUT... I scrubbed the roof, trimmed some scruffy graphics, etc. I have people asking me about my coach EVERYTIME I go into a campground...how old it is, what I use on it, has it been garaged, etc.....

BTW, I didn't answer the rest of your questions.... it can be used in the sun. I had my coach aimed north and south... so I did the shady side in the morning and moved with the sun...but direct sun will not affect it at all.... know what I mean ? I saw it being used on a boat in a marina across from a campground I was in, and was more than impressed. Also, unlike some other products, it will not yellow with age, it doesn't crack, peel or anything else. If you ever need to remove it you either sand it off, or strip it with a chemical stripper.....I know it sounds like I've got stock in the company, but I assure you, I don't..just a very enthusiastic and satisfied user...LOL!

I have seen enough pictures and videos of how it works and how wonderful it is, just kinda scared about doing it right....thanks for the support and the info! Its all good!

Did you post pictures of your coach before and after? I like to think my coach is in better than average condition because I worked my a** off last year on it, but maybe not if mold can grow on it . I love pictures. Lotsa pictures. Will take them when I start the process of the Poly Glo. Post yours Rvguy!

Nice grass - any chance your lawn sprinkler system is causing the problem?

Thanks! No, it doesn't run in the winter months. Plus I moved the sprinkler head (gear drive) limits so it doesn't spray the coach that's why the grass is so dead behind the coach, I never have got the rock extended back there. The mold was only on the curb side of the motorhome. It is the morning dew/condensation that sits there all morning whereas the street side gets sun right away in the morning and burns it off...

I am going to see about getting new vinyl stripes before I do the Poly Glo thing....some of the stripes are cracked and faded.

Update: Fleetwood sells the striping individually, which is great because the only bad stripe with cracks is the light colored kind of pinkish colored one....I can see it when I zoom in on this pic.......

Hey, Rvguy, I have a couple of bad places in my vinyl striping. I think it would be good to replace the bad striping before I do the Poly Glo. I contacted Fleetwood and am waiting on schematics. She said they sell them individually, which is good, my darker stripes are all in good/moderately good condition, but the pinkish looking one has bad cracks in it and sure needs replaced. The vinyl on the street side of the coach is all in relatively good condition....of course, there are spots in all the striping that hopefully the Poly Glo is gonna help a lot....

btw, thanks for the info on the sun, etc!

Kent - Looks like Spencer's investigating the grass to see if it caused the problem in one picture

I know, right?

Actually, that was when I was doing a 'dry run' with my ex-pens and he got caught in it and was snooping round to figure out what was going on in his back yard....!

Vinyl striping

Well, Fleetwood no longer has any of the striping, and the die cut is no longer available......

No clue about where to go from here. Guess I'll have to leave them alone...
