Finished everything last weekend. Learned a valuable lesson to pass on. Always pressed for time, and doing just sections, I finished left rear of unit later into the night here in Ohio, it was getting cool quickly, and I found out dew set in and it caused 3rd coat to rail in a few spots, a long line of small runs. Not heavely noticible, will have to strip and do that section over, so that will be a learning experience too. Anyone else with this problem, or that strpped down just a small section?
Other than that, the dullness associated with earlier National RV's is gone, it looks stunning, probably as good as when it was on the lot (maybe better), makes you feel real good about the work you put in it!

Wow

Took me several weekends to do the entire job, end cap 1st, then front and top cap and 3ft of both sides (to end of cab windows). Then BKF one side, TSP, then Zeps, following then on other side. Once you start applying the wax, it really is a breeze. Found a temperature sweet spot of 72 - 77 degrees without direct sunlight worked best. Be aware of that dew like I said. Cleaning is a bear, but the smile once you start your 2nd and 3rd coats wil make you forget the drudgery! Have fun!
You did your own roof???? That scares me. Post some info on that!

Not sure about on a painted surface. I think it says to not use it on paint. I put 5+ coats on the tongue of my 20' enclosed. It looked great till the Phx heat hit it. There are places that are now whitish and flacking off. Gonna have to scotch bright it and rattle can gloss black it again

Going on the 3rd winter since I did the red max. Nobody could have done the prep work better than what I did. I redid it last summer but a couple of weeks ago I started to see flaking. I guess I will let it flake and decide what to do after getting back from az in April. We leave the 20th so no time to do anything.
