One of the statements in the Poli-Glow use instructions stated "not for automotive paints".

Has any user of this product used it on MoHo paint schemes? If so, has there been any long term problems?

THIS page says Poli-Glow can be used on RVs with painted fiberglass or painted metal and also on vinyl decals.

Do the instructions perhaps refer to Poly Prep or Poly-Ox products? They might be too strong for paint or clear coat.

I've never used it , so can only refer to what their web site claims.

I have already used Poly-Glo on the painted parts of my MH where I'm not going to be putting new decals and it looks great. I got full instructions from the manufacturer via email about how to use the product and he NEVER said anything about not using it on the painted areas. He told me to use the Poly-Prep on the entire rig, then after applying the decals, use the Poly-Glo. Bumpers, doors, everything. There was some oxydation on the painted areas and it looks like new with the Poly-Glo on it. I'm here in Yuma and am getting decals made by a guy that does custom decals after the 1st - then I'll Poly-Glo the rest of the rig.

Good to hear it worked out for you!

Don't skimp on doing the roof as it will keep the white steaks down or eliminate them altogether.

You should also be very happy with how easy it will be to wash/rinse down your rig to keep it clean afterwards.

Dear G GM,
As usual you have interested me again.
I will look into PoliGlow for the 1988 Suncrest I mentioned in previous posts. My rig is weathered after 20 years on duty with USAF out in the Mojave, I restriped it for a quick face lift but have been considering painting it white then adding more graphics for a more up to date look. Now I may skip the paint job,
Thanks
Robert
p.s, I made more progress the last few days - got the generator to run - identified unmarked fluid supply containers under the hood - freed up the frozen heater controls so it will be more pleasant to drive to my daughters in Bishop in the next couple of weeks - bought 2 brand new looking used tires for $60.00 - got my new Aero Turbine muffler but not installed yet - changed engine and differential to Mobil 1 and found brand new driver cabin drapes at an excellent discount ($60.00) oh well that's enough.
Regards
RAM

Hey Ram,
Be careful with used tires. Those tires may have great tread and be 10 years old or more. if you do some searches you'll find out that rv'ers replace tires after 5-7 years regardless of tread depth.

There is a date code on the sidewall to tell date of mfg.

Be safe.

Thanks for all the inputs. I am starting on the roof and working my way down. Good to know it won't affect the paint.
