They both look like they give the same results. Guess which way I'd go?

Oh, and that high priced kit? Only covers rvs and boats up to 30'
And likely only gives 2 coats, max, to that 30' rig! I used about 5/8 gallon of RMP to do 4 coats on my 27' MH

can you use this stuff on metal sides to get a shine or just on fiberglass?

Besides the fiberglass, I used it on my chrome bumpers, the black parts of my mirrors and the painted metal nose; it ALL looks good.

That being said, I don't think the painted metal is as shiny as a new paint job would be, but it gleams very nicely.

Yup, I did the whole cab (Class C) and the painted aluminum window frames as well.

I am lost on the BKF thanks

I'd be cautious using it on a rubber roof; you should only be using EPDM-compatible material on those, and there is no way to tell if Red Max would harm it.

I can't see any problem using RMP on a fiberglass or metal roof; Mop n Glo is used frequently on roofs, and its another floor finish. Should help keep the black streaks down.

Our roof is heavily textured, so we didn't even try it up there.

I just happened to realize that my stripes except for 2" of real stripe is paint. Not sure if I should try and find a stripper to strip those painted stripes off or just go over the paint with the stripes I am going to put on it. If I just go over it it will save alot of time and money.

vman60, i discovered sort of accidentally that MEK (methyl ethyl ketone) dissolved the paint stripes on my '89 Southwind pretty handily. I tried it to remove the old adhesive from the decals I removed, but it dissolved the paint faster than the adhesive!

Unless you are a perfectionist, I would only feather the edges (if they are raised or curling- mine were in places) and paint over the top of your old stripes. The amount of $$ and effort in taking them all off probably won't be reflected in the final job.

In other words it will look about the same whether you remove the old stripes or not.

I just ordered and paid for a gallon on line.They said I could pick it up at the customer service desk in twenty min.Guess what,they are out of it.Plenty of #s 1-2-4 but no #3.All the Lowe's within 20 mi. no longer carry it,Manager said they were going to discontinue it. I guess I'll have to expand my radius.

If there is a Home Depot close by, look for Zep's Wet Look Floor Finish. Zep is supposed to be the actual manufacturerer, Red Max Pro is just the Zep's Wet Look re-branded for Lowe's.

Not verified by personal experience, just passing along what I have read on other forums
