I have a 2000 HR Imperial and it has a rubber layer glued to the fiberglass, so I was nervous about using it there. I called HR (Monaco) tech line and all they would recommend is a good wax with carnauba. Since my clearcoat is in good shape, I abandoned my ZEP/RMP project and just went with wax at this time.

One year update

We put ours on a year ago. It looked beautiful! When we pulled it out of storage this year the finish is flaking over the vinyl decals but still looks good on the white fiberglass. I don't know if we didn't prep well over the stripes or if the stripes just aren't a good surface for it. The worst areas with the stripes are those that were facing south toward the sun all winter long.

If anybody has any of those decals or sticker that come with aftermarket products, mail them to me and I will put them on the west side of my dumpster, give them 5 coats of Wet Look and see how they do in the direct sunlight over the summer. My dumpster was covered with decals and got a flat. I just had it replaced last month.

I had a problem on the door decal that is green for bleeding when I washed with bar keepers friend so I had to use lacquer thinner to clean off the decal and where it bleed. I just washed the fifthwheel and noticed some flaking on this decal. I figured it was because of not getting the surface clean properly after the lacquer thinner.

Just doesn't adhere well to some types of vinyl I would guess.. Or, more likely, the ink used on them..

Has anybody used Wet Look, RMP or High Traffic on anything other than a motor home? So far, I've used it on:

Counter tops
Computer desk
Dining room table
Sewing room table
Enclosed trailer tongue
Grey primer looks like gloss grey
Sand rail A arms
Sand rail tube frame
Formica shop work bench
Formica garage work bench

And here's a shocker... a "Floor"

This stuff is great for making stuff shinny again.

I live in north cal and every lowes is out of the Red Max. The store manager at the closest Lowes asked me why he cannot keep in stock and I told him about using on MH finish restoration. I asked him to order a palet of the stuff. Has anybody tried Hiding the cracks in the stripes with a felt tip marker? I have black stripes that have lots of cracks and I am thinking about "coolering" the cracks with a sharpee!!!

According to previous posts, ZEP High Traffic is the same as RMP#3 and is available at HD.

Try cleaning a small section of the stripe and color it. Apply a few coats of Zep HTFP and post back to let us know the results.

I used soft scrub on my stripes before coating them. Hopefully it gave the HTFP something to stick to. Guess I'll know in about a year.

I put over 10 coats on the test subject. When I pulled off the tape, there were no signs of peeling. Don't know what it will do with sunlight and time.

The Sharpee will most likely 'bleed'.. it does on paint, both acrylic and urethane..

Did it make the shower floor unreasonably slippery?
