Hi Bonnie 123 and Welcome to IRV2. Are you sure your MH is painted? Dull and Chalky sounds like gel coat fiberglass. If so it might require a different answer than for paint.

There are many fiberglass waxes and sealers on the market. Here are some links. I'm sure other members will have some great tips for you. http://www.google.com/search?q=marin...rchapp&qscrl=1
