I used Zep Heavy Duty Stripper. If you use it go strictly by the directions. It was easier than I anticipated

Ammonia cut with some water also works well.

Definitely ZEP stripper ... don't drip it on anything you don't want stripped !! It's this stuff but sold by the gallon in the store .... about $10 and goes a long way.

I never knew about this product but did my own test about a year ago. My first try was a test spot with mop n glow and the other was with pledge clear floor finish.

My conclusion was the Pledge Clear provided a great finish. Application was with a mirofiber window cleaner wand from HD. Beautiful smooth bright deep finish on the roof and sides of my 99 Winne MH. After six months I applied four more coats which now have over 6 months of winter on it and it is still beautiful.

applied only when cloudy, no rain, low wind or it dries to fast.

Okiedoke my motor home cover is only 36ft long and my motor home is 37 ft. So I park it with the rear sticking out. This wax has been on the motor home for over three years. So I guess the sun and time just got to it. The rest of the coach looks good yet. So being a little tired from all the years I thought I would just do the rear again.
