I am thinking about doing our shower and also feel like you a sponge could be ok for the BKF. Now to get it done before hitting the road for Az.

Ooh, the shower... now THAT'S a good idea!

The next time I get the urge to do a good scrubbing in the bathroom, I'll try the RMP. I bet the soap scum will slide right off in future.

Too bad it won't cure the 20-year-old fiberglass "yellows"

Protect All works good on the fiberglass shower and glass. Makes it slick and easier to clean also. Use a squagee on the shower each time and keeps it clean much longer. I put it on when the RV was new and then reapply periodically. Be sure shower is clean before you apply Protect All

Our shower in the home is 24 years old, our alpenlite is over 10 years old but the showers are great because I wipe them down after each shower. The red max might not be needed but I want to see what happens.

Does this finish yellow over time? Or does it stay clear?

Does it work on painted surfaces or just the fiberglass?

My only issue is the oxidation of the front cap. Everything else looks good. But, if it is as good as everyone says, I guess it can be used on the whole coach?? (except the windows and mirrors.. grin)

We will all know your answer when and if it happens. I hope it doesn't yellow.

Don't know about the Red Max. Have never used it. Protect All can be used on glass and mirrors as well as fiberglass and painted surfaces and I know it does not yellow. Have used Protect All for many years.

I have used protect all and it was not a good look for our alpenlite. It really looked like a smeary mess. Protect all is not what we are talking about.

Regarding a cap that has oxidized.. I tried buffing compound and wax.. Protect All oxidation remover.. nothing really worked RMP really sounds good.. my only concern is aging in the sun. Most products will yellow. That's the answer I hope to get from folks..

Thanks for the replies so far..

As far as I know, no user on any forum has reported yellowing, including those who leave their rigs full time in the Arizona sun (presumably where RPM would yellow the fastest, if it were going to).

Poli-glow, a very similar product, has been used for many years with no yellowing issues.

I’m waiting with baited breath to see the long term results of all your RedMaxPro3 applications. This product is an acrylic interior wood floor finish. In the past, products that are formulated for interior use will usually fail rather quickly when exposed to UV outside. I was under the impression that the fiberglass exterior of these motor homes already came from the factory with an acrylic gel coat exterior. The chalking, fading and yellowing you are trying to spruce up with the RMP3 is what happens when even exterior acrylics are exposed to long term UV. Man, I hope this idea works, I don’t relish trying to strip off the cured product. Keep us posted….

RMP comes off with Red Max Pro Stripper without much effort. Certainly no more difficult to remove than an old coat of car wax.

Whether RMP can last 10 or 20 years without yellowing isn't a point really pertinent for discussion, I don't think. It will wear off long before then. Common wisdom is you will need to renew the shine once a year with a new, single wipe-on coat.

Incidentally, I don't believe gelcoat is acrylic at all-

"Gelcoat fiberglass is a colored polyester resin sprayed onto a mold then reinforced with fine glass particles. Being more porous and brittle than acrylic, the gelcoat/fiberglass surface has a greater tendency to dull and discolor over time. Some other drawbacks to using fiberglass are the fact that they can flex or break if they are not adequately supported and they show scratches over time that cannot be repaired"

"Acrylic is a sheet of material that is heated and vacuum-formed over a mold, creating a continuous waterproof membrane. It is then reinforced with fiberglass for added stability and insulation value. Acrylic is non-porous by nature, warm to the touch and retains its gloss finish better than any other material. Acrylic is well recognized for its ability to withstand constant use and cleaning. It is usually recommended that you avoid harsh or abrasive cleaners since acrylic can be scratched."

I put some ZEP Wet Look Floor Finish on the rear ramp door of my 20' enclosed and it didn't turn out like the pics I've seen of MHs with RMP. Ammonia full strength and/or Simple Green won't take the ZEP off. Neither will BKH with my orbital polisher. Will RMP stripper do it without damage to the paint? The ZEP floor finish is like .005% milk. Is that what RMP looks like or did I get the wrong stuff? Bout ready to go buy some paste wax and do a wax over.
