I've had good luck with it. The hardest part is to get the surface clean because once you apply it, the dirt/stain underneath will be sealed in. The front cap last about a year and the sides will last a couple of years. I have done our rig twice in the last 4 years now. Before and after pictures are below.

How many times did you have to do it to get that shine ?
Thanks

What's the process for cleaning the surface? Do they give you a cleaning agent?

ShineOn company sells a kit that includes a stripper and a seal coat along with instructions. The kit cost about $100 for a 35' RV. The process is pretty basic, first wash the rig, then clean with the stripper (some stains needed scrubbing). Then you put some sealer on a rag (they provide) and just wipe it on and it dries in about 1/2 hour. I put 3 coats on the front cap and 2 coats on the rest of the sides. For second and future applications, the stripper is not needed. Just wash the rig and after it dries, wipe on more sealer. I do the front cap yearly and the sides can go 2 years.

It's $149.95 with $10.00 off. My question is, is it the same stuff that everyone was using from Lowes or Home Depot?

Just do your research on using ZEP floor polish. There are conflicting reviews on ZEP being used on RV's. I have not heard of any bad reviews from using ShineOn. It does look like the price has gone up, but you get what you paid for sometimes!
PS - You really don't need the kit after the first coat, for my second coat, I just bought the sealer.
