Poli Glow on new mh

We bought a 2015 Forest River Georgetown in July. I'm planning on giving her a bath and putting on Poli Glow this weekend.

My question is, are there any special considerations I need to be aware of with respect to the factory coating? Will the Poli Glow adhere properly? Can I even use Poli Glow on a brand new unit?

Thank you for your time.

I personally would not! Used that crap on my fiver a few years ago. After a year it started looking horrible. Still paying for that big mistake. Use a quality wax. At least any mistakes are easily corrected.

Most paint companies want you to wait a while before putting anything on. Might want to check with the RV manufacturer and see what they say.

Poly glo is great for old,faded surfaces. ( I use it on my boats) But I would personally go with a high quality paste wax with UV inhibitors to preserve the current new finish. I use ICE - goes on easy and off pretty OK. Gives a long lasting protection

Thank you all for your inputs. I did more research and the Poli Glow is definitely out. Looking at Protect-All for the coach and 303 for the tires. Thanks again!!

Personally I use Dry Wash N Guard and have for many years. Even water doesn't stick to the finish.
Yes, I USED to be a distributor/dealer for them but quit it some years ago, but I still use the products since they are good.

Snake Oil.

Go to any boating forum and read all the horror stories about how you get it off when it starts to look like [ moderator edit ]

Per above you need to wait. Some say 6 months even prior to waxing. Needs full curing time.

Personally wouldn't use Poly Glo on a new rig.

I use Protect All on lights, plastic, glass, etc. It is too light for the body. I use Nu Finish or Meguiars on the body.
