did mine last year, 94 Alpenlight

Got my rig out of the barn today. Put RMP on almost a year ago. Thought I would try another thin coat on the front cap to see if the shine could be improved. Did not improve at all, but the shine was already so bright ,I needed sun glasses to look at it.

30 minutes I believe, or long enough to dry thoroughly. If your rig is big enough, the you might just be able to apply the coats one after another as they dry as you work your way around the rig.

The label says ~30 minutes, but if it's dry to the touch, is that considered dry enough to the manufacturer? What I mean is, does it dry more internally, like paint, and make for a harder surface for the next coat. If re-coated too soon, does another coat partially dissolve the previous one?

I just wanted to stop the white crud from running off the roof and down the sides of Shaneeda. So I took some advice from this site and used the Zep product on my roof. I will say it took me longer than some of those on this sight and prep work is the key! Here are the before and after pics.

Was it hard to walk on between coats?

Started at the front and worked my way to the back...down the ladder for a potty break.. It was 75-80 degrees outside while I was working on it. It was dry by the time I crawled back up the ladder(10 min ). Easy to walk on in tennis shoes..not sticky. The Zep says slip and scuff resistant(or words to that effect). it was not slick when dry...
Actually finished this project a couple of weeks ago, but hadn't gotten the after pictures yet. In the interim the oak trees and shed all of their pollen buds and the roof was green. So a quick wipe down with a micro fiber mop and dry cloth and the after picture is the ending result!

Potty break? Normally, a project would call for a beer break, but not when roofs are the topic of said project.
