Help with dull exterior...

So my 85 Jayco is looking blah. The decals are shot and one side has some pretty bad hail damage but that bein said id like to make it look a little better. The aluminum is in good shape aside from hail damage. Lol what can I use to shine up the beast and either remove the decals or make em look better. Thanks all!

I have used a product that you use while wiping it off after a wash, Add to damp towel and dry off MH. Worked okay but not as good as a wax/buffer does.

Sorry I should have been more concise. The bar keepers friends and scrubbers will brighten and remove all the stains but it's the Zep that will make it shine

Home Depot if I remember right a gallon is about $25 and you will only need half search Zep in the search line it will give you various ways of applying it, I prefer the spray bottle method

Restoring shine

Restoring shine to our older camping trailers. Ours is a 1990 25ft. HiLo Classic with fiberglass. We use Gell gloss that can be purchased at any RV store or on line. HD carries it. We first was the trailer with a car wash. Then apply the gel gloss with micro fiber towels. The small size works fine. This product cleans shines and protects. Follow the directions on the can. It also comes in a spray can. Do a search for Zep application on this forum. Zep can also be purchased at Lowes. Barkeepers friend can be found at Walmart and Bed Bath and beyond. There are some threads on decal removal.

Restoring shine

Just to clarify. Use either the gell gloss or the Zep. Don't use both at the same time. We are all sick of winter and wishing for warmer weather.

Does the gel gloss work on aluminum? I thought it was for gel coated fiberglass?
