I highly doubt that RMP or ZEP has any UV protectant in it. After all, it was made for indoor floors. There is Wash-Wax-All that does have protectant in it. Wipe on–Wipe off. Not too expensive. I think it was about $13 for a quart from a small airport accessory shop.

As I posted before, HD & Lowe's have a lot of other brands of floor polish. Who wants to be the Guinea pig?

I waxed my white 20' enclosed trailer with Meguiar's Cleaner Wax with protectant and it really shines. You can put it on the entire vehicle, then buff it off. I did it in about an hour with my orbital buffer. One bonnet to put it on and another to buff it off.

Wax is a lot easier to type than acrylic polymer. And it conveys the same meaning; Something that shines.

Seen a guy using it in our park the other day. Might have been some he had from a previous purchase though. I didn't stop to ask him but what he did coat on the front did turn out good.

Asked at the Lowes here in Corpus- the manager said they had no plans of discontinuing the Red Max Pro#3.

Like any other product, if its not selling in an individual store, the manager can discontinue the RMP, I'm sure.

Why not see if they can special order it for you?

How do these products work on the plastics of the vehicle? I have plastic around the wheel wells and also a significant portion of my front end is plastic. I hate to get started with one of these products and have 95% of the RV look like new and the plastics look like their true age !!

I can't, for the life of me, find any white microfiber rags/towels. I can find yellow, blue, green & red but don't really want a yellow, blue, green or red RV. Any suggestions?

I stumbled on a display by the registers of bundled white microfiber cloths at Bed, Bath, and Beyond last December. They may still carry them in the stores.

Amazon.com also carries some. Just search for "white microfiber cloths" (without the quotes).

We put the RMP on every surface; fiberglass, window frames, mirror shrouds, bumpers, chrome- it made the mirrors and bumpers black & shiny again (instead of foggy gray) and appears to have lasted as well on the plastic as on the fiberglass.

Its been a year now since we first used it, and we'll renew the RMP as soon as we can get a good wash on the coach (this campground doesn't allow washing). The sides are still shiny and the mirrors are still black.

Good enough for me.

As for the white cloths, just go buy the lightest color you can find, wash them, and use some bleach. They won't stain the RV. I used yellow ones that had been used for a while and the left nothing.

Actually, I found a microfiber flat mop, looks like a swifter. It was white, and I used a spray bottle full of the red max pro. With the handle, ii made
Doing the top half of my MH a lot easier. I only had to use a ladder at corners and on the front and rear cap.

It works great on plastic. I used it on all my trim and it turned out very nice. I used the yellow microfiber rags they sell at Costco. Make sure to wash them first. I've done many rv's and they all turned out great. Make sure you don't get any wax on the glass, its a pain to get off.

I actually think the microfiber swifer thing is the best think to use. When you use a rag towards the top you have to stop to move the ladder, this tends to leave overlapping marks that can be seen in the sun. Try to use one motion from front to back for best results.

Worked so well on the RV that we used it on the stick house shower/bath -- they were made of similar plastic material and it sure beat using the mfg recommended polishing technique.
