Paint Sealant Protection

I would appreciate input from those that know more than me. My wife and I are closing a deal on new Allegro Bus 45LP. The dealer has flooded us with add on if we want from Extender Warranty, Paint Sealant, Road Hazard Protection etc. The product ResistALL Protective Coating is being offered at a pretty sizable cost. Actually they break the cost down by inside and outside. Were stuck between whether it's just a high cost wax or if it truly is a product that protects the integrity of the coach. Please offer your opinion on should we or should we not. Thanks in advance for your input.

I wouldn't do it. You could use the money that treatment cost and have your coach professionally cleaned and waxed every year for probably at least 4 or 5 years for the cost of the ResistALL.

Some of the most asinine things people do are typically preceded by the two words "Watch this".

Just say NO! Walk away as it's a rip off to legally steal your money.

Those coatings are called "dealer addon's" and are rarely worth much but get a great return for the sale. Most have a dealer profit margin of 60 - 80%.

By trying to sell protective coatings doesn't say much for their product. Get a waterless cleaner with wax and keep it clean. I use Purple Slice, spray and wipe, no need for soap and water and leaves a shine. I use a laminate floor mop with removable micro fiber pads to reach the top half. Have several pads so you can change as you go.

The paint has at least two coats of clear coat on it. No need to protect it. The "mop and glow" guy a the dealership like to sell all this unnecessary stuff.

For road hazard, check with Coach Net. One of the best. Extended warranty is a highly debated item on the forums. Before you spend a lot of money, do your research!

Enjoy your new coach without add the add on's.

I never understood the manufacturers telling you to not put any wax on your new RV for at least 6 months and the dealers trying to sell you a sealer that you need now ?????
Your Bus has one of the best Super Clear coats on the market you don't need anything else but a lambs wool pad to wash it.

I appreciate all the comments made. I also questioned whether its a good idea or not but my gut always said not. We have decided to take a pass. Once I get to an area to settle in for more than a couple of days, I will hire myself. Thanks again.

I was told the new paint should be at least 6 months old before anything is done to it. It may be the personal opinion of the fellow who told me but he owned a body shop for years.

I am considering a product called Xzilon. According to my friend is a good product but has to be applied more than just once in the beginning. He suggests it be applied every two years but does not hurt to put it on yearly.

I am also considering McGuiers synthetic sealant.

Wait 6 months for the paint to fully cure and then spend a fraction of the amount on a pro detail and hand wax. You will have many years of trouble free shine.
