I'm giving it a day between coats to be on the safe side...i know its a tad cold but its not freezing temps and dang it I'm too impatient to wait til spring

This is my very first post here and I have read this Thread in it's entirety and very impressed with the results of RED MAX PRO..

I have a 2001 Holiday Rambler Endeavor and I am in the process of stripping and removing the graphics. I have used Turtle Wax rubbing compound on the whole Motor Home. So far my coach is pretty shinny. I am wondering if I can use RED PRO MAX after my new graphics are installed.

I understand that it is recommended to use Bar Keeper Cleaner and Scotch Bright Pads. (Green or White?) which will dull the finish I have... Here is my question.

Do I need to use the Bar Keepers Cleaner or can I just use RED PRO MAX?

I sure like the pictures on here I have seen...

Thanks for your opinions...... Lee

It's "VERY VERY" important to have your camper as clean as possible because this product will seal any dirt or grime under it and you will have to strip this off to clean off any dirt that gets trapped..If you used Turtle Wax rubbing compound on it I think it would leave a wax build up behind..I would pick a small spot and see if the wax makes it bead up like rain does on wax, if so then you will need to strip the entire camper and get all the wax off with a ammonia product..Once you have that done you need to put 4 to 5 cpoats of REDMAX on and you will be good to go...And don't forget to post before and after pictures we all love pictures...Hope this helps RANDY

Thanks Randy. The Graphics are being installed this coming week and it will take at least a week for them to be installed. That's a great idea about finding a test spot. I'll give it a shot. I'll post before and after once I get going....

Do you have a Home Depot if so they carry ZEP FLOOR FINISH and it is the exact same thing..REDMAX is made by ZEP and Lowe's sells REDMAX and HOME DEPOT sells ZEP or that's how it is here in the southern states..............

Yes, Home Depot has ZEP but they have several different polishes - any idea which one is a match for Red Max?

BTW thanks for your help.
Cheers

Here are before and after pictures of my last Burro with the Red Max Pro applied.

I know everyone has had good luck with the Bar Keepers cleanser, but I was too lazy to go out and look for it. I experemented with cleaners that I had on hand at the shop. I found that Mean Green cleaner and degreaser mixed with Clorox worked perfectly. All of the chalking, mildew, tree sap and any stains lifted off with minimal work. I tried using the scotch brite scrub pads and also used a stiff bristle scrub brush, getting the same results with both. I applied the solution on to the camper with a pump stlye tank sprayer in sections, let it soak for a couple of minutes then scrubbed it with the brush. Areas that needed more attention were scrubbed with the scouring pad, but not the entire camper. I have done this with the last 3 campers, 2 being Burros and one a Casita, and both achieved a high gloss shine. Note that none of the campers I have done had any factory gell coat shine left, they were all pretty flat white when I started. I am assuming that if you have a partially shiny camper that you will have to scuff the surface with the scotch brite pads to dull the shine so that the Red Max Pro will adhere to the camper. I have had nothing but good luck with this product, and even recently applied it to my fathers 1989 Bass Boat. His boat looks like new again also and being submerged in water for hours at a time does not have any afect on it.

This is just my 2 cents worth. If your camper is as dull as my past Burros, you may not have as hard a time prepping it as you had thought. I completed the camper pictured in about 5 hours, but that was allowing extra dry time between coats due to the temperature in February. With temp above 60 degrees, the finish dries as fast as you can go around the trailer with no delay for dry time!

Red Max Pro testimonial

I applied 4 thin coats in April after a thorough cleaning. Looks fine, except I think I rubbed a little to hard with Scotch pads. Mine is an old 1980 16' Scamp, and the Red MAX Pro brought back an "original" shine. No photos yet, will include after I get it out of the "ScampPort."
