Need Recommendations for Restoring Shine

Has anyone tried a product called Shine On? If so, were you happy with it or is there another product you would recommend that shines better?

Im going to take it upon myself and guess you are talking about restoring the shine on the fiberglass. I have replied to many threads with the same answer ....meguiars cleaner wax a variable speed buffer. It is a lot of work but the results are well worth it. I then apply meguiars ultimate liquid wax when I finish buffing. Buffing the exterior gets the majority of all imperfections off and all of the oxidation. I use this method on my MH and my vehicles once a year.

I will second the Red Max Pro. I had areas on my motor home that would not shine no matter what. I read about the Red Max and bought a gallon and put it on and it has never looked so good.

Red Max Pro #3. Available at Lowe's for about $15/gal, and a gallon will do the biggest motor home with lots left over. Check the thread on the Vintage Forum posted above, or this one, the mother thread

Easy to apply, no buffing or rubbing. Gives you a show room shine on the worst old oxidized, weathered fiberglass. Once a year give it a re-wipe to keep the shine..

Here are the instructions last post

Thanks for all the replies. I had read all the threads about waxing, buffing, ProMax, etc. However, I have seen on the internet a product called Shine On and it looks to be very easy to use, fewer coats than ProMax and more permanent, and less work than waxing and buffing. I was just wondering if anyone had tried it. From the replies, I guess not. But thank you so much -- I guess I will try the ProMax first as it is cheaper than Shine On since I am unable to do this myself, I will have to pay someone to apply it for me.
