This is what I bought at Lowes.........worked wonderful, second year and looking great still. Prep and cleaning is the biggest factor on how your job will turn out!

Used the same Zep product. Did it again this year for the second time and used a cloth pad attached to a handle that we got at Home Depot. The pad was a synthetic product that is replaceable. Pad was about 16 inches wide by 8 inches. Made a real difference getting the product on the roof and spread thinly. Just needed to pour some wax on the roof and spread with the pad. Took about 20 minutes to apply each coat and another 20 to dry. Got 5 coats on and the roof has never looked better. First time last year we applied by hand with a cloth and was not satisfied with the result compared to this year.

I was going to use 303 on our roof, but last week I was polishing the rig and looked at the roof. It looks like it's already got some kind of a rough coating over the fiberglass. Need to get my ladder out and take a closer look.

First question would be , plain fiberglass panel or painted?

From what I understand; read here in the forums ; Zep isn't the best for painted fiberglass.

OK, if I have this attachment correct?? Instructions for using red max pro.
I did this two or three years ago, very happy with the results. I guess I did the roof three years ago, then the body two years ago. You can always hear the negative on this forum, but if your rig is older it will improve the looks.
