2001 35 ft alpenlite avalon ordered in October 2000 to be built in March 2001. Over 5 years living in it and next thursday another over 6 months is waiting for it to make us nice and cozy until April 1st 2012. Eat your heart out because it is not a MH. Love to tease MH folks that could upgrade to a fifthwheel.

I bought some ZEP Wet Look Floor Finish($27) from HD because Lowe's only had RMP #2. It didn't turn out right on the tailgate door on my enclosed trailer. Had to use some ZEP Heavy Duty Floor Stripper to get it off. What are you guys using to apply it with and how wet is the applicator. I used Bar Keeper's Helper, rinsed it good and applied it with a flannel towel, buffer bonnet, Swiffer dry pad and maybe a couple other thing. It did not come out with the Wet Look.

It take very little product applied maybe 4 times. I used the round micro fiber applicater for the regular wax but had a round knob handle to hold but the micro cloth would work better maybe. almost can't do it ok unless you use more than needed. I can see a few small runs if I get my eyes up close but not a problem. I hope you are jealous of my picture, you earned it. chevman

Red Max Pro #3 and milky white streaks

Oh boy, think I need some help! My husband and I started putting our first coat on. I wiped on lightly with a sponge which did cause a few bubbles but I just squeezed my sponge out a little more. My husband, who has a tendency to over-do, really rubbed & in circles, and now there are milky white circular streaks where he applied. Does anyone know about the stripper? If this might hurt the painted surface on our motorhomes? Any other suggestions? Need Help ASAP!

See post #102. The back door on my trailer is painted. If you use your finger and a rag to remove a run, it tends to remove the paint, but you have to rub hard and a lot.

Was that ASAP enough?

Since I already had a bottle, today I applied Mop & Glo to the front end cap and to the rear end cap. Did the Bar Keepers Friend first, washed off all the BKF residue and started the main job. I first used a small sponge but it created a lot of bubbles. Switched to an old wash cloth and it worked much better. Even having to do 4-5 coats, much easier than "wax on / wax off". Both ends look really great. Now debating on doing the sides. The sides do just fine with normal car wax or Protectall so I may just wait and see how the end caps hold up.

I was at HD today and was amazed at all the floor finishes they had. No RMP, but they had a lot of others.

In all the two RV's I've had since Y2K, I've never had an issue with the sides going bad.. just the front and rear caps. Don't know why. I know one side and the front cap get all the sun. Front caps "chalk" big time.. sides.. never. I've still to try RMP.. but, probably will.

Thank you Dunner. You did good on quick reply. I definitely was in a panic when I asked you guys my question cause it looked awful and like it was going to take a lot more work to straighten this out but......actually decided to just try another coat and 'watch' it dry. Figured what did I have to loose? Haven't been able to see the sun on it, which I think will tell the true tale, but it seems to be doing the trick???? Will let you know.
