For what it is worth, I spoke with Jim Palmer re: my acne on the roof. He said that fiberglass is porous and will absorb stains. Unless you seal it with a wax it can happen to any fiberglass trailer. I guess it is important that we keep our units waxed

Man, "Nest Egg" looks wonderful, Jiim, but of course I thought that Egg Camper was a startup recently and you had an essentially new egg? On the other hand, i guess the gel coat will oxidize fast enuf and you're ahead of the curve if the Red Max holds up and you don't have to do the REAL Armstrong treatment repeatedly. I also notice that our opinions about chicken plucking have been expurgated. I don't care that much for "hands on" moderator censoring but maybe it's OK that our opinions went away. Of course, we'll still have them but we have a second chance of making and keeping friends and that counts for something.

Hi Folks,
going down to the States tomorrow and will be buying a gallon of Red Max for my 13' boler.Will this be enough to do the required 5 coats ? Just want to make sure I don't run short...
Thanks,
Andy

One gallon is plenty to do it at least a few times if not more.

Yes, a Quart will do the entire trailer at least twice.

Wow Randy--the units look fabulous!!! Did you have to clean the gel coat before you applied the finish?

My "little Captain" and I admire our shinola job on the port side of el Gordo. Four coats of Red Max on the port side; three looked even, reflective, adequate. Calm and overcast day; really the worst threat to a perfect finish was particles of dirt and bark from the Norwegian spruce in bkgrnd. Also many I-seeums-just-fine which aspired to the status of flies in amber. Have to take the larger view that the wax is a cosmetic improvement and dirt shedder and a few embedded bugs don't matter much to those passing at 85mph!

I have a section of scaffold set up which helped with the initial Barkeeper's scrubdown. A painter's extension pole and a bonified Polyglow applicator and a ladder was all that was needed for the ap (altho I did climb out on the central roof to cut in the first coat with the smaller chamois included with the Polyglow mop. The bifurcation by vertical seam inclines one to do the job by halves so now it's on to the right side. I'm closing in on a presentable rig for the Delaware Water Gap rendezvous next month but still quite a bit to do evenings and weekends.

If contemplating the plunge to floor wax, look back at Randy Bishop's pic of the Polyglow applicator in a very early post on this thread. It isn't cheap at 15$ but I'd say it's worth the cost to apply a very even coating. Polyglow recommends that it be washed out in water (and I used some Dawn liquid detergent), wrung out, and bagged airtight until it comes into play again for that annual recoat. I bagged mine and put it in the fridge; I hope it doesn't develop mold.

I like the slight "bronzy" color cast of the wax as against chalk white oxidized gel coat. Also seems to have made gel coat repairs and, dare I say it, expedient rattle can coverups disappear.
