You mean "Honey Badger". Google it. I can't post the link because of the language, but it is

No sense in the $2.50+ BKF when you can get Comet No Scratch for <$1.00. Works just as good.

I screwed up the rear door ramp on my 20' enclosed with runs and too much ZEP and had to use the stripper on the whole door. That wasn't fun and took about 10 tries with the stripper to get all of the ZEP off. Never re-did it. Meguiar's Cleaner/Protector worked and has a UV protectant in it. Thin coats of ZEP on my 35 year old counter tops worked and they look almost new.

I just bought 5 gallons of RMP #3 for $16.00 on sale at Lowes. I will be using it in the near future on the RV and a Boat.

5 - 1 gallon bottles or 5 gallons for $16.00?

Great to here that 8 months on and no signs of diminishing finish quality! Will head the warnings of runs & drips may just get the stripper just incase.

Time to prep a compartment door and try it, rest of rig needs finishing off before being shined. Looking forward to less overall elbow grease compared to regular compound.

5 Gallons? $16? That's a great deal. A bit much to have on hand for me, though. You could go to any RV rally, show, campground, etc and give the RMP treatment to every rig there and still have gallons and gallons left.

You've got enough to re-package in quart bottles and sell. Ask a fair price and you would save fulltimers the hassle of having to store leftovers after shining up their old rigs. OK, OK. Just thinkin' here.

Some people choose to invest in the Stock Market, others choose Gold and Silver. I'm betting on the future of RMP.

UV does not appear to affect RMP- no yellowing or peeling after a year or more. Just some minor loss of gloss, which may as well be from normal abrasion of dust, wind and washing.

I think if you read the label, it probably says it is a non-yellowing formula. It may have something in it that prevents the yellowing that was common with earlier floor coatings.

I've seen very few reports of yellowing or peeling (although the very few peeling reports I've seen have been attributed to improper surface prep; usually, the yellowing was from using dyed microfiber applicator cloths) but I have seen reports where an RMP treated surface that was constantly exposed to high levels of sunlight (such as the top horizontal or nearly horizontial portion of a front or back fiberglass cap adjacent to the roof or a sidewall exposed to extreme sun exposure during an entire day, more so than the rest of the RV received) lost much to all of its coating while more protected areas fared well.

I suspect the loss of gloss you report is more likely due to UV exposure than to abrasion as you postulated. I've seen a couple of reports of people who coated their roofs with RMP in the last two to four months and I'm waiting to hear how well those applications stand up to a direct UV attack from above opposed to the oblique one sidewalls receive. Granted, these are extreme examples and even if the coating was degrading from UV exposure, it's still one heckuva an improvement over other surface treatments. It would be nice if RMP#3 on a roof held up well since that would help preserve the life of the roof and avoid black streaking.

For the last 2 months, we have been parked on an oilfield gate in south Texas, with daily windblown caliche dust sandblasting our motor home.

Underneath the dust, the fiberglass is still pretty shiny (I'll admit, not as shiny as when the RMP was fresh, but still lots better than before). No peeling or yellowing.

Now that we're off the gate and headed to more civilized parts, I'll take a day or two soon and give our old girl a good wash and a repeat of the RMP (I have a gallon tucked away in a basement compartment).
Our Lowes doesnt stock it anymore Ive heard All Lowes are dropping this product Dont know why. BUT go to Home Depot and buy Zep with the wet look. It works even better. Talk about a shine WOW !

I would NOT use it on a new unit where the finish is new and in great shape. Instead I'd use regular wax/finishing products. I still use Protectall or Nu-Finish on the sides of my mh.
This is not a floor wax but a acrylic polymer. No wax in it..But you are correct on the rest of your post..
