Zep floor Polish Wet look. It's about $25.00 for a gallon at Home Depot or Lowe's .
I have a 40 foot class A and used less than 1/2 gallon. Has been over a year ago that I put it on and it still shines like glass. Good on paint, plastic and rubber as well. Wear gloves when applying or it will dry on your hands and you will catch hell getting it off. Apply with a damp lint free cloth.

We used Mop and Glow for 3 years. Found it yellows and doesnt quite last a year. Switched to the commercial Zep wax and it seems much better. Found this year that it is much easier and quicker to apply with a long handled wide soft fabric pad from Home Depot. Applied three coats this year in about four hours on a 40 ft coach including the 30-45 drying time between coats. Doesn't seem to yellow like the mop and glow and three coats leave a tremendous high gloss finish on the roof!

Interesting. I had very different results.
I used Mop and Glow for years, then switch to commercial Zep wax with in the year it is a ugly yellow. I need to strip it and I will go back to Mop and Glow, maybe I did something wrong.

Well I thought I was thee only one who regretted using that Zepp stuff. I found it clouded up on my painted surfaces and is almost impossible to get off. Applying it is not as easy as described elsewhere. I sprayed with a hand sprayer and then rubbed it in with a microfiber cloth only to find it settled in rough spots on parts underneath the area sprayed. I am using a heavy polish to rub off the clouds. I don't know how applying three coats of Zepp twice a year is any easier than waxing your unit once a year. But thats just me. I could be wrong. If I ever get another new Motorhome I will not be applying anything to it that was not designed for that purpose.

Very satisfied with Zep wax on fiberglass roof, after two years its still there. However I would not use Zep on painted surface. I only use Rejex on sides of coach.

303 aero space protectant is the only recommended product to treat tire sidewalls and not void their warrantee. My Seaeagle fasttrack inflatable kayak also recommends using 303 for uv protection and general longevity. As with many posters on this forum I have learned of many more uses.

We are fulltime RV's, so our coach is out in the sun 365 days. We have a fiberglass roof also. The only place it was not to bad was under the solar panels where the sun did not hit it. It is a pain to get off!!

I had a detailer wax my last coach that was fiberglass sides w/decals. He would apply 6+ coats of wax, never told me about the polyglo product. Not knowing anything about polyglo I was impressed with the finished results......UNTIL.....it started to wear off on the high wind areas of the coach. Looked like a car you see with the clear coat coming off. I should have been told this needed to be re done every year. At a cost of $400 that wouldn't have been an option. A year later when I tried to get a small area of this stuff off I couldn't, I regretted doing it and wouldn't recommend it. I now have a new to us coach and will wax the full body paint like I do my cars.

"Zep floor polish" does an excellent job. But you have to put on at least 5 to 7 coats to really see the difference. If you really get ambitious, polish each coat before applying the next coat. Lots of elbow-grease but GREAT results!!
