Rv Exterior Protection

We just purchased a new Heartland Voltage. They are attempting to sell us a product called Trident Protection Systems. I'm not able to find much info on this product. Does anyone have experience with this?

I can not find any information other than one reference from some one selling similar products on the Mustang forum and their comment. Nothing you can't get at Walmart for a LOT less so I get it a very expensive snake oil feeling. Wax it and clean it.

Chris, This sounds like a scam for sure, just wash your rig occasionaly and apply a good car wax yearly, also be sure to clean your roof twice yearly. I wax yearly and use a good carwas/wax combination about once a month. Keeps the rig looking good.

The protective finish is really good.......at removing money from your pocket and sticking in the dealers pocket. These products are high profit margin sales for the dealer and salesman.

I agree with this. Our dealer tried to sell us a $1,500 "protective" treatment. Pure profit for him and I guess people are always tempted to buy what they think is the best for their new RV, but the finish that comes with it is just fine. Wait a few months and wax it if you want with Maguires, or Protectall, etc. A lot of people use turtle wax from Walmart. There are as many opinions as there are products, but do pay attention to matching the product with the type of finish you have. I like the two I mentioned. We will be able to use these products for a long, long time with the $1,500 savings.

Save your money, wash and wax. You just cant go wrong keeping it clean and sealed with a good wax..Funny how anything, a car,truck or RV always looks and feels so nice after your done..I would agree with Don, I use Maquires products.

Happy adventures,
Barney
