Trying to restore vinyl

I have a 1988 Fleetwood Bounder that a 34ft'r and is perfect shape. As some of you might know that about 70% of the exterior is covered in vinyl siding. Does anyone know how to clean and restore this. I tried some of this stuff my nearby RV store stuff to no prevail. Any idea's would be appreciated. Vman60

What about Magueres from checker or auto zone. I've used it to get oxidation off of my vehicles before and it works great. The sun reeks havoc on vinyl good luck bro.

If it is vinyl, the best vinyl product that I have ever used is Vinylex made by Lexol. I purchased mine from Pep Boy's (auto parts store).

my bet it is fiberglass as my fleetwood is a dead giveaway will be looking at it close. my best choice if it has oxidition is first a boat wax sold at academy it is in a bottle used to remove oxidation keep rag or buffer wet.
(a lot of work) then a wax of your choice

I used this product on my Vinal and it worked real well.
Welcome to Poliglow Products - The Manufacturer for Over 15 Years!
Poli Ox will remove heavy oxidation from dark faded fiberglass
They also have a glos finish.
