R1Kirby, I too put Zep Wet Look on my '03 motorhome. And as you said it's AMAZING. So glad I went through the work to get it clean. I did this in 2013 spring, and it looks just like I applied it this spring. And the coach stays cleaner also.
Life is a triip, ENJOY the ride.
Safe Travels.

Before you use ZEP . . .

Check out this RV.net discussion from several people who regret using it.

Zep Wet Look

I purchased a 1996 Allegro about 3 years ago the exterior was badly oxidized. I had a grand son in the paint and body business we were going to paint the coach. He was very busy at the time so I decided to try the Zep I had been reading about. Well I read all the instruction on body prep and followed them it was a lot of work but just like painting prep its a lot of work. I applied the Zep with micro fiber towels just as the instructions stated. It lasted great I put a clean coat on about 3 weeks ago. My coach sits outside about 90% of the time in Texas heat with no fading or flaking. I totally contribute my success to proper prep. The people who have had problems I firmly believe they did not use Bar Keeper Friend and scrub the coach completely and get all the old oxidation off or all the old wax off. Also there was a post on not putting Zep on painted metal. Well that's bunk all my storage doors are painted metal. I even Zeped my Aluminum painted boat the paint was 10 years old I did it after my MH came out so good. Im sorry for some RVs problems but you cant always fix lazy or stupid

I have to agree bakerman. Its the prep. Yep, its a lot of work, going aroud and washing and then scrubbing your mh with BarKeepers Friend with a magic eraser and then washing it again to make sure there isn't any soap or anything left on it. But the prep is the key to a very good looking coach when done. My coach sits outside 100% of the time, it still looks great.

If you go down the page you will see Manage Attachments, Click on that then look where you have your pictures on your computer and download the pictures you want. Its pretty slow while downloading.At least for me it is.

Good luck and am looking forward to seeing yore Pic's

Full instructions for pictures are in the " FAQ " drop box in the blue bar below your welcome message. Best to re-size the photos before you upload. 640X604 works well.

Stupid - - - maybe () lazy heck no Waxing a 30 ft motor-home by hand and a buffer 3-4 times a year for 4 years is not lazy, a guy that spent a week getting the oxidation off a 32 year old motor-home not lazy. Just can't do it any more. So maybe I want to try the Zep treatment.
I think I'm a little late to try it this year, but next spring I think I'll try it.
Smart,
Tim
