I bought another gallon of the red max pro #3 yesterday. Lots of red bottles but just two of the #3. Because of the red max on going story I looked and it did have ZEP listed. Lowes was the store.

After reading through this thread we decided to give the Red Max Pro #3 a shot at shining up our 1997 National Seabreeze. We followed the steps in the tutorial found on this thread and we were VERY pleased with the results. I will try to attach some before and after pics. It is a little hard to tell in the photos but on the bottom portion of our MH it was DULL no shine at all and now it shines beautifully. We highly recommend this product, works great!! Thanks for all the tips, what a great thread!

The first 3 pics are before and the last 3 are after

Great pix!

Ain't it grand when you can look at your old girl and you can't quit smiling? Red Max Pro is amazing stuff- I'm so grateful to the first guy who used it.

Red Pro cleaning

starting the cleaning of my 94 Kountry Air Newmar and when I got outside this morning to inspect my progress I was not sure if Iam doing things right. I did about an eighth of the motorhome last night with the bar keepers friend and white scrubbie and this morning I still have a like powder surface still on it. I used a hose after each little spot I did with the BKF. Does this mean that I didn't get all the bkf off or is there just still more oxidation on it?? Starting on the opposite side of the motorhome today where the sun isn't hitting it.

You need to wipe as you rinse. It can leave a residue.

I use either Dawn (or any dish liquid) or TSP in water to wash with after the BKF. I don't think just rinsing is sufficient to get rid of the residue from the oxidation you're removing..

Its like rinsing off dust; just doesn't seem to work

I went and redid the one side of the motorhome again and then I used dawn and a car brush and rewashed the side I just did. It seemed to help. I guess after I do the rest of the motorhome it is then time for TSP. The gray color on are boxes seem to be fading will that stay like that when I apply the Red Pro or will it bring color back.

I know the Red Max will bring back the shiny black again.

I used it on our mirrors and bumpers, which were oxidized and gray and they came out black like new. With other colors, the effect should be the same; the oxidation should be overcome with the RMP so the original color comes back.

I think if you've done a thorough job with the Bar Keeper's Friend, all you need to do is wash with Dawn OR the TSP. No need for both.

At this point in the process, you won't get beauty- you're just trying for that nice clean surface with no dusty or powdery residue. Don't obsess about it, just do a normally good cleaning job and move on to the next step.

When you start to apply the Red Max Pro, the first few coats will be disappointing- remember, very thin coats wiped on (like wiping dust off a kitchen table with a damp rag).

Depending on how bad the surface was to start with, 3, 4 or 5 coats will bring back the gloss. Just stop when you don't see any more improvement in the shine

It worked wonders on my old coach. Still have 1/2 bottle left but going to Lowes and buy another before the price goes up.

Red Max Pro is a wax. A floor wax.
