Did my 1997 National Dolphin last year, pulled out of storage this spring and it just brought a smile to my face to see it look so shiny and nice. The older Nationals were noted for their fading and hard to keep shiny lower body, now it just glistens!!

Nice looking RV, hteixeira. Show worthy!

I just washed my 10-year-old Itasca Spirit and it looks nice ... or so I thought until I saw your photos. Obviously, I have some work to do. But at least now I have a starting point. Thanks for the tips and the inspiration.

By the way ... Did you use BKF Cleanser & Polish (non-abrasive power), BKF Liquid Soft Cleaner, or some other BKF product? And how much did you need?

I used the liquid cleaner, much less labor than the powder. I used just one container on a 36ft.

I used a microfiber cloth. I didn't have any problems but others said to make sure the cloth was color fast.

I can never keep it straight, is this process good for the rubber roofs or only the fiberglass ones? We have a Rubber roof, and I'm going to be doing some major washing and cleaning starting next week. I've been intrigued by the ZEP process but can't keep it straight to know whether or not this process is safe for my roof, or only the sides of the RV?

Could you PLEASE outline the process that you took from start to finish, as to how and what you used and did to produce the fantastic results.

Hey pops2, did you need more detail than what I had in the original post? I outlined the steps there...but Kerry me know if you have any specific areas that need more details.

A small water bottle with a tiny hole punched in the lid is the best delivery method I know of. It's easy to refill when needed and it doesn't spill or cause over spray. Used with a micro fiber towel attached to a pole and you can speed through the application process. Clean with Bar- Keepers friend and TSP - Tri-sodium phosphate - This strips the wax. I've used comet on the white areas to bleach out stains... and she's a beaut!

Agreed. The Poland springs water bottle with a screwdriver to through the cap hack was great for holding the polish.

Dint forget, wear gloves and try to stay away from key holes! :-)
