ZEP/Red Max Floor Wax

Curious as to how many folks have resorted to using Floor Wax to brighten up/rejuvenate their Camper/Trailer/Motorhome?

After reading several positive articles regarding Red Max Pro and Zep Wet Look Floor Wax I decided to take the plunge and rejuvenate the finish on my 2001 Discovery. I have to state, unequivocally, that I'm now a believer in this process. The results have been outstanding. I've had nothing but praise from fellow campers who've seen the transformation of the finish on my MH.

Please share any and all experiences you have had with using any floor wax to give new life to you units finish.

We did out 97 Dolphin last year and it looks like a new one. If we had good graphics it would be perfect. As you may have heard the preperation is the key to a great job. So follow all the directions and I sealed the windows the second time because I got the black streaks from the sealer.

There are numerous threads on numerous forums attesting to the validity of RMP-3 and Zep Wet Look. Mine has been on now for about ten months and I can hose the unit down and have a perfect shine.

That's a 16 year old Bounder in my avatar that has never been inside anywhere, and you can see the shine.

Mine has been on for 14 months with the unit in the CO weather--cold--heat --dry--Ocean front stays for two months--almost 8000 miles with lots of rain--etc and I am IMPRESSED. Still looks good and will put another coat on it soon. Best thing I could have done on 1995-- fading decals and dull,dull, finish on the lower panels.

Only problem I found was when I took my MH thru a Blue Beacon truck wash. Now my RMP3 job has to be done over. It stripped the wax in streaks. But it did look great before the truck wash. And I will do it again.

Since the truck wash stripped the wax in streaks, do you plan to strip the rest before re-applying? If so, how do you plan to strip?

That is a good question. It is a procedure with several important steps. Do a search and you will find several descriptions.

Sounds to me like you didnt apply it correctly or the truck wash uses high alkaline products. Can only imagine what it would have done to the finish.

I applied it correctly and it held up great for a year. It was something in the wash. I am going to use the Red Max Stripper to get the rest off and reapply the RMP3.

I just went to Blue Beacon today, no streaking on my RMP FINISH, but I did spring a leak inside. I think it is the ICC lights. This is the first time I ever had a leak.
