Penetrol question

I read in one of the threads that someone used penetrol on their motorhome to restore the fiberglass finish. I looked up penetrol and this is what I found:
---Makes exterior acrylic paint stick
E-B Emulsa-Bond is a stir-in latex/acrylic paint additive formulated for exterior paints intended for wood, masonry or aluminum siding surfaces. It's ideal for chalky or dusty surfaces, or any surfaces where adhesion is a concern. E-B Emulsa-Bond stirs in easily without altering the original finish color and eliminates the need for primer.
Where To Use
• Fomulated for exterior wood, masonry, aluminum siding or porous surfaces.

I'm not so sure I want to put this on my motorhome;
comments please:

I've used it on my boat-- it does bring out a nice glossy look. You need to wipe on a couple of coats with a cloth. On the boat , in salt water, it lasts a few years before having to redo it.
If you look on the can, ( check Home Depot,Lowes) , it does state you can use it on fiberglas.
The black rock guard on the rear of my MH was looking nasty, so I wiped some on that last year.. still looks good today

Absolutely not, I have been in the paint business for 30 years. I sell these products. They are great paint additives but they will cause uneven and streaky yellowing of the fiberglass.

I have to second his comment. Also in the paint business and this is not the route to go. This product is mostly for paint. I have seen some really bad reactions on fiberglass from using products not designed for them.

I have used Penetrol on wood cabinets, and it made a world of difference. A friend of mine used it on his fiberglass boat, and also on his travel trailer. He has used this technique for years. I would say the boat and TT improvement was exceptional! The cabinets that I did looked great the 3 years I had them. "Panjh" is applying the way I was told to do it.
