Count me in. I did my Bounder about a year ago, about ready to wash and apply a refresher coat or two where needed. Looked great all summer and fall. We didn't have a real severe winter around here, but it still looks decent. Bought three bottles of RMP last fall when it looked like it may be getting hard to find.

It would be interesting to see the number of how many have actually used it, and for how long.

We did the original work last spring, 5+ coats on a badly oxidized '89 MH. Just applied the first annual "refresher" a few days ago. 2 coats (probably not necessary, but it went so fast) and it looks like new.
We just used the RMP #3 last year for first time It's time to wash and reapply this year. Last year put 4 coats on. It looked great but think could have used 1 more coat. Figured this year would do the trick. It has to sit out in the weather, no shelter for the poor baby but RMP sure has helped! We have a 1997 Winnebago Adventurer and was definitely in need of the RMP but looks like new still after a year. Very satisfied customer!!

A previous poster did the research, and it appears either will work as a substitute for RMP.

High Traffic #3 takes more coats but lasts longer.

Wet Look takes fewer coats but needs renewing more often.

See post#186 on this thread, ZEP HTFP is the same product as RMP3.

If your RV is clean and has a good wax job do you need to remove the wax before you use RMP.

Yes, this is why it took me a long time to prep my RV. The ZEP HTFP has to have a somewhat porous surface to adhere to, or may easily peel off.
I used soft scrub with bleach followed by a liquid detergent dish soap.

When you do the final rinse with a hose, the water should fall off the sides in sheets. If you see any water beading up, it still has wax on it.

Can the RMP / Zep be safely applied on the thermoplastic panels below the belt line on my 2001 National?

Apologies if it's been mentioned already.

Thanks.

My fiberglass roof has a rubber layer that covers 90% of the roof. It has 2 walking strips down either side they are textured to keep you from slipping. The entire roof was covered in thick mold. I have scrubbed all day just getting the mold off. If my arms move tomorrow, I will use the TSP and Zep High Traffic.

Stopped at Lowes tonight to buy items for the DW's honey do list.

They had Zep High Traffic in a 5 gallon container for $65.00, works out to $13.00 not bad.
