I noticed on Amazon that there is the normal 303 Protectant and also the Speed Detailer, which is also 303....anyone use that? If so, which is best? I have a new coach and I'm also confused about what to use, but TdogKing makes a convincing argument about 303!

Buy a small bottle and give it a try and see for yourself, its does a great job with easy on/off and you can use it for the whole coach no matter what its made of. I haven't come across anything I wish I didn't put it on.
Cool. I have used 303 on stuff for years, but never paint. The closest I got to that was on the gel pat of a ski boat. I will give it a try.

In case you have a high gloss, gel coat finish, like me, here is an email I just got from Armor-All....they recommend that this NOT be used...

Dear Mr. Moser,
Thank you for contacting us about your Armor All Ultra Shine Butter Smooth Wax. We always appreciate hearing from our consumers. We would not recommend you use this on a gel coat finish.
Also, the wax needs to be applied in small sections and could take quite some time to do an RV.
Again, thank you for contacting us.

Sincerely,

Victoria Wolf

^ Armour All's "Extreme Shield" works good on gel coat....it contains no abrasives, and you don't let it dry to a haze then buff off. It won't remove oxidization or contaminants, as it is merely a protective coating, nothing more

I had actually asked about extreme shield and gel coat, and they named the wrong product in error. When I inquired about it, here's the response I got....do they just give a conservative answer because they are not sure?

Victoria, my question was about the new Extreme Shield, rather than the product mentioned below....

Buy it and try it on a small area. It's cheap, and if you dont like it, you can either take it back or keep it for the car. My motorhome has glass smooth panels mind you, but it works so easy...you just wipe on a small section, then wipe off immediately, no dry time needed. I use it to protect against bugs. It's not really made to fill scratches and give a high luster shine, rather just to protect (so if your MH is dull, it wont look much different afterwards). If you MH is really faded, any wax will actually make it look blotchy, so polishing with an ixidization recover is recommended first.

I suspect they weren't sure if it was safe for RVs... "no" is always the safest answer.
