The Jury's Back

I personally believe the RMP option has proven itself to be a bust. Even if you recoat once year, it doesn't prevent yellowing and all you ultimately end up with is new layers going over old layers that are yellowing and trying to crack and flake. Just like how continually painting over old layers on a house won't keep it all from eventually cracking and flaking off.

I've used mop and glo instead of rmp/zep and things look nice. I consider these products as a base coat that simply fills in the damage done from oxidation. Regular washing and then using a spray on wipe off protectant should prolong the life of the polymer. I have also now built a carport big enough for the mh and two cars which should also help.

I applied Poly Prep to my rv and it looked good for awhile, but the side that got all the sun developed streaks, with impregnated fungus of some kind, I went over it with soap and bleach but finally realized I needed to strip it with poly prep. Now I don't want to go thru this expensive and difficult application process again.
