I just used the Zep high traffic on my class C the front end looks like new. I used it right over the paint no runs no bleeding of the colors. It took 5 coats to make it look like a clear coat I even coated the marker/taillights to almost new. The sides are great I hope it keeps the mold and mildew off as the prep work was a killer. I don't think it ever had a wax job in its life.

I wonder if the Wet Look or High Traffic could be sprayed on with an automotive paint sprayer.

The Zep high traffic is like water. I did small squares at a time to keep the bugs down. The microfiber cloth has the advantage of putting it on so thin it will dry almost flash dry on a sunny day. By the time I wiped down an area 4x6 feet the first was dry to the touch.

I was wondering myself. I would imagine that you might need to cut it with something but what..............

Maybe I will give it a try on something & see how it goes.

It's so thin, I don't think it would need cutting.

I used a Mr. Clean swiffer type of thing. You can get micro fiber cloths for them. I thought it worked great. I used a paint tray to put the wax in and then just dipped the Mr. Clean mop in it..

I do not believe this product can be sprayed. Maybe somebody can but not most of this group. I decided the best for me is to spray the product onto a micro cloth or what ever is used. No runs this way. Caution if you use a bottle spray to not get it on your glasses. Now every time we use up any item in a spray bottle I rinse it out for this purpose thinking it will get used used very quickly from the product drying in between coats.

Speaking of glasses, I did wear my old scratched pair to apply Zep HTFP. Couldn't help but wonder what would happen if I applied Zep to the lenses.

Haven't tried it yet.

I'm talking about on an enclosed trailer. I would never try it on a MH. The over-spray would make a mess of the gaskets, windows, etc.

I tried it on some old glasses. It streaked. Used straight stripper to get it off. No harm done.

What you can do with old glasses is to use Pledge on the lenses. It's not permanent, but it does make them look almost new for a while.

For the previous poster who was concerned about colors bleeding...

It was GRAPHICS (decals) that occasionally bled- but only on the first coat. It has been applied over paint with no issues.

We used the RMP stripper on some drips we had on our brand-new painted areas, and the stripper did de-gloss the paint a bit.

When the factory painted back door on my 20' enclosed turned out bad with the Wet Look,(applied too wet)and had runs at the screw heads, I had to use the stripper full strength to get it off. It did not damage the paint or take away the shine.

I have told about bleeding for me. One green decal on the door bled. It bled when I used the bar keepers friend but not knowing is why I had the same problem appling the red max. The fix is if it bleeds on the prep work do this. Use a little of the product as possible and wipe the decal with a one way wipe and let it dry. Done deal after it drys.
