We just hand wash the micro fiber in a Dawn solution, and rinse clean/clear and wash with other misc. car towels etc..

Thanks for the suggestion! Last time I just sculpted the RMP#3 soaked microfiber towels into pleasing shapes and let them harden. Your idea is much less wasteful, if not less artistic!

When I do small items, I lay the folded up micro cloth on the top of the jug then briefly invert the jug for the next coat.

I bought a quart spray bottle for less than $2 at Home Depot and use it. Easier to juggle on a step ladder when using. In large areas I spray right on the surface, near windows or other obstacles I spray on the rag then wipe. Be careful on windy days, I had acrylic coated glasses after one such day.

I use a wash-cloth size cloth and a aluminum pie tin. I fold the cloth twice so it is quartered, soak it, squeeze an appropriate amount out, and do about 8 square feet with that amount. No mess and real fast, wife works low, me high, our 33 footer goes real fast.

I'm in Virginia and the day temps are around 50 ish (nights are 38 ish - so the paint is very cold in the mornings) - is there a 'too cool' temperature to put this on at ?

As fast as it dries, I would say no. Of course as it gets colder or more humid, you want to wait longer between coats. I would have no problem putting it on at 50 degrees on a sunny day.

Now why would this be the best way to apply? It is not because of the glasses story. I did the same thing. Best way is to buy a flavored bottle of water at Walmart for 68 cents. Drink the water and wash out and dry. Pour some product into the bottle and drill a small hole in the cap. this is the best method to pour onto the micro cloth. Anybody can beat this method let us know.

I know that that worked for my friend last April but I was on the wrong end of the story.

I never claimed it 'was the best way' I was just tossing out an alternative way to get the RMP#3 onto the sides of the RV. I'm sure some folks swallow a mouthful and do a spit-take to get it applied.

I think the spay bottle is best, because almost eliminates the ladder except. For the corners where you need a rag. I use a microfiber moor and mop handle. I spray it directly on mop head.
If you like climbing up and down ladder, a spray bottle still works well.
