For a update on mine, they still look as good as they did on the first day I got done with them..One good note I went on a fishing/camping trip had to go down a muddy road and got mud all over the camper and it dried on hard, when I got home I sprayed it down with a hose to get most of the mud off then was going to carry it to a car wash...But after spraying it with the hose everything came right off like it was covered in teflon or something, nothing seams to stick to it very well even bird dropping come right off with no scrubbing what so ever..I now have 4 Trilliums (3) 4500 and (1)1300 3 of them has the Floor Finish on them and 1 has the poliglow the one with the floor finish shines the best by far...............

I am intrigued and debating whether to do the poliglow or redmax. The question is seeing as my trailer is yellow will yellowing really matter? lol

I wouldn't think there would be a yellowing problem, the one that I done back in early spring has set in the hot sun here in Alabama all summer long and in the past month we have had several days with it over a 100 and it sets out there on a concrete slab so I know it has to be even hotter there... The last camper I done was 3 weeks ago and setting beside the other one I can't see any yellowing at all...Hope this helps.....RANDY

Will this help bug stuff and tree sap come off easier? Our 5th wheel is extra high because of the Tundra so cleaning the top often is a problem for the one cleaning it.

With the experience I've had with the product I would say YES it would make it alot easier to clean the top.......

Question: I just went to Lowe's and found two Red Max floor finish products. One is what I'll call regular and the other is stain resistant. The text on the regular says it will provide a high gloss finish. The text on the stain resistant just says it will enhance the gloss of the flooring while protecting it from stains.

I'm guessing the regular product is the one everyone one is using.

Is that correct?

You need the one with item number 216595 on the upper right of the front label.

Click on the pic of the bottle in the first post, that is the one you want.

I read this post and followed your lead, I am extremely impressed with the quality, look and duribility of Red Max Pro. FYI, it doesn't come off with either mineral spirits or 90% isopropyl alcohol, I need to touch up a few drip areas and I think I may have to buy the Red Max floor stipper to get it off and touch up the areas.

Letting it run can be a huge pain. I leveled my runs with light sand paper on a sanding block then recoated the area.

If you try out the stripper please post your results. Ammonia was mentioned for removal but I have not tested it.

I bought the stuff but have not applied it yet. Any tips for cleaning and application? I was thinking about one using one of those narrow 6" rollers, but not sure if a rag or foam tip would work. Sometimes they want to skid rather than roll.

Does it go on like paint? Does it have any gap filling quality? I am kind of wondering if I should try and scrape the dirt/discoloration out of some of the spider cracks.

Regards,

Matt

It is much thinner than paint, more like water, I wouldn't use a paint roller. Use a sponge or lint free rag.

Think of it as a self leveling clear paint but very thin and you will get the idea. Try some on bathroom floor if you want some practice before the trailer

Remember this stuff is designed to be applied with a mop so almost anything lint-free should work reasonably well but I will go with the above recommendation of a sponge or lint free rag (micro-fiber worked very well for me).

Any dirt you put this stuff over will be "coated" in floor polish so the cleaner the better.

To clean the camper I used a Scotch-Brite scouring Pad with BarKeeper Friend it's a powder something like Comet but without the bleach the best I can describe it..It will clean anything on the camper, it can be found just about anywhere the dollar Store here has it and it's very cheap..I wet the camper and the pad then sprinkle a good amount of the cleaner on the pad and rub away..It takes off tar,road grime about anything..I done the top and everything in a couple of hours...I wouldn't recommend using a roller to apply the Finish because it would cause runs, a micro-cloth would be better, it's better to put several lite coats than trying to put on a couple thick coats...And remember the first will really look BAD because it will look streaky but the more coats the deeper the shine, a shammie might be even better thats what the applicator I used was made out of it came with the Poli-Glow I put on my first camper...some other people on here have done thiers now and they might be able to tell you what they used to put thiers on with....Hope this helps
