The ZEP Wet Look is about $10 more than the High Traffic.

I used the blue sponge/scrubby things from Home Depot with no issues at all. I also used the blue microfiber cloths after washing them 2 cycles in hot water.

The blue pads are a bit more aggressive but my coach's trim is all paint with only one thin pinstripe of heavy vinyl. Can't say how the blue ones would work on decals.

I used cheap microfiber cloths. After a good washing, I also had a Scotch Brite pad sponge/scrubber for any bugs, grease spots, ect, I encountered while applying the Zep HTFF.

Just a quick condition report. Red Max Pro #3 put on Beginning of last season. Been out in the sun for 2 seasons and exposed to nasty rain and the like. So far, after a quick wash to get rid of surface dirt, it looks as good today as it did when I first applied it!

Of course I should have spent a bit more time on the black streaks near the roof line...but it still looks fabulous. No yellowing at all.

Roof is next. I should have done it already, but I wanted to USE the RV!!

I spent most of the day yesterday, in the 100+ degree heat, washing the RV thoroughly. After the wash, I used the BKF and Scotch-Brite on the curb side. All I have left is to finish the front & rear caps and the driver's side with the BKF, make sure the surface is 100% clean & dry, so I can put on the Zep. I bought TSP, but the coach was clean enough that I don't think I'll need to use it. Hopefully the Texas heat doesn't slow me down too much today so I can get it all done today.

Here's the post BKF pic from yesterday. Can't wait to make her shine.

I have a tip. When your inline water filter ages out for drinking water, it works great to filter the water for car washing. When I rinse with the high pressure washer, there is no water spots. Which is good because when it's 105, there's no time to dry before the water evaporates.

NLP, Just a quick caution from someone who did their job in the heat. The Zep dries REALLY fast in 85 heat. I had issues with it setting up before it totally self leveled leading to streaks that could be seen when viewing at an angle. A couple of coats during cooler mornings got rid of them.

Is this just for the paint... or does it go over the decals well? Seems the decals are a few mil's thick. Just wondering.

Occasionally, some have reported that the first coat of RMP/Zep will make color bleed from old decals.

Just apply the stuff c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y if you see signs of bleeding (i.e.wipe along the decal, rather than across)- after the first coat, the issue is moot.
