Zep floor shine is the easiest. Looks beautiful for about a year then the fun begins. It will chip or wear off, then you need to Strip it and start all over again.
Ask me how I know this ......
I don't think anything would beat a polishing compound and then paste wax.

I used Poly Glow on my 2000 about 2 years ago and it still looks like new The secret is in the preparation. Buy their kit and their 7"applicator. It also has UV inhibitors also. It's a lot of work but worth it.

Please, help! Have reached an impasse, here. Husband and son have been trying to strip Zep floor finish off motor home body...with recommended Zep heavy duty floor finish stripper, and are not pleased with result. Is there anything else that might do the trick, better? Husband has some time off from work, currently, and are trying to get this stripping done and move onto waxing it. Argh...Nothing is easy, right? But is there something out there that might actually do the job?

I feel your pain, you are not the first one that has had to do this.

Yes there is. It's called poly strip.

https://poliglow-int.com/product-cat...istrip-liquid/

I never had to use it because the Poly Glow on my motor home is still perfect. Hope I never have to find out. I still can't for the life of me, figure out why anyone would put a coating of wax that's made for indoor floors on a boat or motor home, instead of a product that's specifically formulated and developed for boats and RVs.

Thank you for getting back to me. Yeah, I know, a floor wax. When we bought motor home, last summer, we saw several videos online, (before connecting with irv2 site) which recommended the Zep floor wax. They said how great it worked, and how easy, etc; and of course, never mentioned the downsides or hard it would be to strip off. We went with it, hated the toxic fumes, and it looked pretty good, but now we are on the downside with trying to get it off. Anyway, moving right along and trying to figure out how to move forward. Thanks again.

Once you get it off try Meguire’s Gold car wax, lasts about a year unless you wash the coach a lot, or with something that removes wax, like dishwashing liquids.

I agree, Meguire's Gold is great but my gelcoat was starting to get dull and I had to put an acrylic wax on to bring back the shine. I do use Meguire's on my cars though. Their 'wash and wax' is great also, I wash the cars and motor home with it. Costco has it right now for like $14 for an entire gallon.
