I never had a problem with Mop n Glow, I doubt if I will with Zep either. I don't plan on putting a polished shine on, just seal the roof from chalking.

I wash the roof a couple of times a year. The spring wash get a quick mop and sealed for the season.

The Zep bottle tells you how to apply. I put 3 coats on in Jan. and I love it. The Live Oak blooms in Florida washed off very easy with no stain left. The roof is really white and no streaks when it rains. I will probably put on a couple of coats when I get to FL in Dec. or Jan.

Thanks for the input.
Rejex isn't cheap but it goes a long ways and lasts a long time. After the first application I can now do our 35'6" coach with one 16 OZ. bottle.

Does Zep provide UV protection? Can't find any info on their webpage but it does state its for indoor use. Am wondering about using 303 on roof?

I do not think 303 is a good choice for a fiberglass roof. Seems it is better for the rubber, vinyl and other materials that it can absorb into.

The bottle says Vinyl, Rubber, Plastic, Leather, Fiberglass. It also says reapply every 3-5 weeks but I'd like to find something that lasts longer.

That was my point, it will most likely just wash off with time. I do not want to get up there and reapply every 3 weeks. I personally am going to give the Zep a try.

I think 303 would be cost prohibitive to do an entire roof. For the money and longevity Mop & Glow or Zep would be better options. Not that 303 isn't a good product. It's great especially on black plastic parts that like to fade in the sun.

I am wondering why with a fiberglass roof you can't just clean it and wax it like the rest of the coach. I use Wash Wax All on mine for the most part so why not the top of it? What reason is there to use a floor wax or similar just on the roof?

You can-until it starts to oxidize & get chalky. Then you will get the streaking down the sides. After cleaning mine well I did the ZEP as I don't want to deal with the streaks. If yours does not have the problem just carry on. I use the wash/wax on the rest of the coach.

So if my fiberglass roof is getting oxidized and chalky, Zep will help?

It did mine. But I scrubbed the oxidized stuff off and then coated it with ZEP. It looked good all last summer. I need to wash it and check it out as we just got back from four months in south Texas but the last I looked it was still good. Not getting the streaks from the rain either. I plan to do 2 coats this summer if it's still holding up.

Hi Jon

How much would be required to do a 36 foot MH? How hard is it to remove after it hazes? Do you work in small sections at a time?

Thanks
