You can purchase ZEP from Home Depot. It is high gloss floor polish. It is Acrylic based, so it puts on a very hard surface. There are many opinions on if this is a good thing or not, as some have had it flake off like a clear coat. My opinion is that most put it on way too thick. Yes, putting it on thick gives a very deep looking shine, but I also feel like that is the source of many of the problems with it flaking off. I put it on my coach about 3 years ago, and only put two coats on. I have seen no issues with it anywhere on the coach. It does seal off the paint and makes it much easier to keep clean. If you want a deeper shine, I would put wax over the top of it.

For the first several years with our RV I used Camping World RV wax. But if the weather is warm, it tends to dry rock hard before you can wipe it off, even in reasonably small sections. And streaks of wax buildup are a b!@%$. I have switched to the same Meguires Tech Wax that I use for my cars. It's a little pricey but much easier to rub out.

I haven't done mine yet, but will use Glare polish. I've used it on my cars, former GMC motorhome, and my 23' jetboat with excellent results.
