Ok now we are just adding ideas for others to get the idea. Way too many places for me to use a mop. the spraying the glasses is a very big no no. I thought it was the best for me but I was not noticing the over spray at my face. So we have options and I saw a mop job once and it was awesome until the sun hit that side and it was a mess but the guy got tired and was in a hurry because of rain. the side without the mop was outstanding. He rented a scaffold but that ran up the cost because it rained on him and had to wait for a good day. I get lots of comments on how great our 12 year old alpenlite looks . An older tradewinds down the street was washed and waxed last week. It has alot of blue that was faded. what a place to test the red max but the wax looks messy and not a big difference.

The only place I really could not use the mop was the corners. The finished product looks great, and I'm getting ready to put on a touch up coat again this year, even though it still looks good.
I'm on oxygen, and dragging out the scaffolding and putting it together sure doesn't sound like something I want to do. I could see once you get it put together, it would be easy to do a bigger area at a time, and not use ladders. I would suppose you have to move it around though. Wow, 140lbs?

If you have to use a scaffold, use one made of bamboo. It's natural, light, and strong, just have to watch out for hungry pandas.

Ya.. It rolls really easy.. once together though, you just roll it into the garage as a shelf

If you can get it in the sun it will dry much quicker. YOu dont want to put it on in the 40s or without the sun to dry it.

Yellowing

I was wondering if anyone has had any problems with rhe Red Max Pro #3 yellowing after it has been on the RV for a few years. I have installed it on the front and rear portions of my 1999 Tropical. It looks great. I'm going to do the sides later, but I really wanted to know if anyone has had any problems?

This has been asked before and if memory serves, no one has reported yellowing so far after 3 years. I used Zep HTFF a year ago and no problems. My '99 Dolphin has yellowed a bit before anyway, so I'm not worried about it.

With all of those who have responded, this one should be easy: do any of you know of some one/company who will do this work in the San Diego, Riverside or Orange county area of Southern California?

My coach REEEEEEALLLLLY needs it. But I just don't have the time.

Thanks

I'm sure a local high school kid would appreciate the money.

I bought two gallons, one would have been plenty. I had a few runs on first coat. 2nd coat went on much better, used a loose fiber cloth. Wring it out so you can put it on very light coat. Be sure surface is clean as after dirt etc is covered, it will still show through.

The clear coat on my 89 Winnie Chieftain is peeling pretty badly on almost all my bay doors. Do you think the RMP3 will make those look better, or should I repair the clear coat first, then apply the RMP?
