Hey everyone. First, Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Now then. I am going to have to give the DP a good polish/wax soon to keep it in good shape and have found two possibilities for polishes that once applied, promise long term shine. Have you guys/gals used this stuff and if so, what do you think or recommend?

http://www.poliglow-int.com/poliglow.phtml

http://www.prestoprotech.com/Boat_Ca...l#Anchor-22564

The first link says to apply a few coats every 4-6 months.

The second talks about a longer time between coats.

I know that there was a discussion/photo of someone here who had a MH fire that destroyed their gasser but the pic comment refferred to the Polyglow still looked like new on the rest of the coach. I just want to know if the expense and effort is worth it. I am looking for a once every year or two polishing since it sits outside by my house and an RV cover might be too troublesome.

Also...while I am on the subject, has anyone here applied the Kool Seal (or other) rubber roof primer and top coat to preserve their rubber roofs? If so, how did it work for you?

Thanks in advance and have a happy turkey day.

I read some previous posts on this product, sounded real good. When I went to the web site, it REALLY looked good. UNTIL carefully watching the application. Looks like it can take multiple applications the first time, and then the reapplication in 6 months. I thought there was room for streaking during the initial application and need to apply several coats.

It looks like a lot more work than just applying a good wax for gelcoated products. I use P-38-Q RV and Boat wax from PRO Products. The coach still has lots of shine after one year, but I good ahead and reapply each spring. The price is right, so I don't bother using any left ofver from the previous year as it thickens making for harder application.

Back in April, I posted some results on an excellent polish that I use. You can read the post here.

Good luck and I hope you find the right product for your needs.

I used Presto on my seven year old gelcoat which was beginning to show its age last spring. I have been pleased with the results and I am currently seeing how it holds up over time. I applied one coat and found that the sides that get the most sun needed a recoat after the summer. If it take a once a year application to keep it looking new then it is worth it. Ads for Presto say it lasts four years or more. Storage in direct sun could decrease this time some.
