I wonder if this coating will protect the trailer from the sun? Other than making it shine.

How did your floor cleaner finish last?

I read your post about using the product from Lowes. I just bought a 13' Scamp (1994) and would like to restore the finish. I LOVE how yours turned out. Did it yellow over time?

still happy with test strip?

Hi! I'm looking to use the Red Max Pro and am hoping you can let me know how the finish looks now. Thanks.

All I can say is this stuff is shockingly good. The shine is unbelievable. I have a 1998 16' Scamp Deluxe.

After the first coat I wasn't sure but as you add coats it evens out. I have 2 coats on one side and 3 on the other so far. I think 4 coats will do it.

Nothing I have done has worked as well as this.

I'm very happy.

I put one coat of Red Max Pro #2 and one coat Red Max #3 on 1/3 of my camper today after scrubbing the entire thing with Barkeepers Friend= wow what a difference. Can't wait until tomorrow and put one another coat and finish the other 2/3. I'll post pictures tomorrow.

Hi, Randy!

O.K., I'm finally going to ask- after all this time-
What the heck does the last line (above: 7/24/2010) of your original post MEAN?
What's a chicken picker?

Francesca

"CHICKEN PICKER" definition...one who types with one finger

I've had Redmax on 2 campers close to a year now with "no" yellowing, "no" pealing, "no" problems what so ever...I'll post pictures very soon went camping over the Labor Day weekend and got them very muddy so they need a good washing first........................

I've got the gallon of Red Max Pro #3 wax but not the #2 sealer; are many of you applying a coat of #2? One side of el Gordo (Burro 17) is scrubbed down with Barkeeper's; not the other. The side currently clean also has a horrible patch of raising gel coat on the aft roof radius where I assume the fabmat or cloth was not wet out sufficiently to get a good bond. It's been painted and looks pretty sad so going to have to sand that down and do some body filler work there and probably try a gel coat top coat from a Prevail sprayer or maybe brush on and cut down. THEN maybe I can get the Red Max on that side. So far applied only to a very weathered house battery box and looks very good. Going to set up a section of scaffolding as working on this big fat thing working from a ladder and clinging to a waste stack vent or AC while scrubbing ain't so very safe. As for weight-bearing roof, it certainly has one probably due to the "beam" effect of the Pullman car "clerestory" that runs fore and aft.

Faired in the bad patch mentioned above with white lightnin this afternoon. Unfortunately, I don't have the Evercoat PVA mold release that cooks off the gel goat (you old layup mechanics know that usually you spray the stuff on the mold AND THEN the gel coat; this way is bassakwards), so will have to check for that at Eastern Marine as I don't think trying to cure it with an application of saran wrap on this radius is going to work very well. Hoping to rebed one of the waste stack vents and the access door on the fridge AND the potable water chingus AND go over again with Bartender's this week and get the yellow waxy buildup done one side by next weekend. Then back it to other side of driveway, move scaffold and start all over on the starbd side. The bifurcation by vertical flange of clamshells appears to be the prime desideratum for determining what to do where. Probably good for me or I'd be trying to do everything at once.

I did but it doesn't appear to make any difference. But 2 coats of #3 does, so I'm not wasting my effort with #2 anymore.

I did not use any sealer. The stuff is sooo easy to put on. I used a microfiber cloth. Put on the rubber gloves. I soaked the cloth. Wrung it out. And just wiped it on. By the time I made it around the camper. I just went around again and again. It took no time at all. You can just keep going until you know it is done. The first coat even made it look so much better. Dont forget your pics...... before and after...
