I think this stuff could remove dents.

I used Tech 2.0 on one side of the coach last year & it's shining as much as the other side I just did.
I think 2.0 comes in paste or liquid. Which one did you use for scratches?

I've always been a fan of Blue Coral wash n wax. For polishing I use NuFinish. I have also tried a new product out by Mothers. It's a sythetic wax that goes on easy and comes off just as easy. As far as roof cleaning you have to use the soap recommended for the material. On our previous caoch which had an EDPM rubber roof I always used Ajax or Comet. On this motorhome with the Brite Tek TPO material I use Murphy's Oil soap. For the harder stained areas which generally are around the roof vents I spray some Awesome on a rag and then wipe down those areas. With another wet rag I wipe that off and use the Murphy's to finish up. Seems to do the trick for us.

I am in Canada and I have just used the same as Red Max Pro#3 that you poeple use in the US. It is made by Zep and is available at Home Depot and is called "Wet Look Floor polish #3" in the blue gallon container.This does an incredible job on fiberglass sides or roof. My MH is a winny sightseer 2003 and had no shine whatsoever>I used this after a very good cleaning and the results were outstanding just as the RMP#3 forum stated. I used it on the fiberglass roof and never noticed the difference in it made to the surface as far as slippery but the shine is very noticable and no more black streaks.IMHO I love this stuff and it took me less than 3 days to clean my MH and 1 day to apply the wax.

How did you apply it. I bought some today. It was $25+. The High Traffic stuff is ~$15

Read all about Red Max Pro 3# (and the Zepp's for Canandians) on this thread

and more on this thread.

Briefly; prep by thoroughly cleaning, first by rubbing lightly with Barkeeper Friend, a mild powdered abrasive to remove stains, chalkiness and oxidation (put on a damp sponge or white scrubbie and wipe), followed by a wash with TSP (tri sodium phospate, available in the paint section), then rinse very well. This removes all old wax as well.

Followed by 3 to 5 very thin coats of Red Max Pro #3, wiped on (much like wiping dust off) Use a damp microfiber towel, preferably a white one since some colored towels will bleed into the RMP.

Once a year, you will refresh the shine by a normal wash (we use dish detergent and water) and wiping on a single coat of Red Max.

I saved that post in a Word Doc. I used everything except the TSP, but it was on a painted surface and was very clean. I put on many coats with a micro fiber cloth and anything else smooth I could find; Swifter pad, and lint free towel. I did shine, but it didn't look like some of the pics that have been posted. I just put it on the rear door of my enclosed trailer. Taking it off now, but it don't wanna come off. Using Simple Green, Ammonia, vinegar, etc.

I think I could screw up an iron ball with a feather... I swear, I don't think I can do anything right lately.

Trailer is pretty shiny now. Think I'll just use Wash Wax All on it. Lowe's was out of the #3 so I bought the Wet Look stuff. Probably shoulda got the High Traffic stuff for $10 less.

The Red Max Pro #3 Finish has a RM Stripper to take it off, about the same $15/gal. Works great (we bought it to remove drips)

I don't know about the Zepp's stuff, but I would assume the same.

Somewhere I read where ZEP makes RMP. Straight ammonia and straight Simple Green ain't cuttin' it, even after letting it sit for 10+ minutes. I want it off, but not hurt the paint. Gasoline Diesel fuel, De-natured alcohol? I'll find something around here. Not gonna try Acetone, MEK or Zylene. That stuff would cut the paint.

Senior Chief, you got the bottle of stripper handy? If so, what does it say about using it on paint? Polisher didn't work over-all or I didn't use it enough.

Do not use dish soap as the detergent will remove the wax. Instead use carwash soap

Red Max Pro #3 is not a wax, its an acrylic. Not too many "real" waxes in use on MH these days.
