Joe, I've stripped a localized area in the left hand window recess/reveal of our Burro trailer just forward of the window. Stripping was for the purpose of cosmetic repair to the surface. I used 12% ammonia; I was cautious about not allowing the solvent to run down the side of the trailer and had no markoff below the area removed.

I sprayed the bondo repair with a rattlecan primer and paint using soft masking (cardbd. mask raised above the surface except at the window frame). Matching color cast is a pain so after the paint cured for a week, I recoated the area with RMP which masks discrepancies of color and also surface texture. (Yes, Virginia, there is a slight amber or bronzy tint to RMP which can be put to use.)

If indeed ZEP and Red Max are the same material from the same manufacturer, then the proprietary stripper for ZEP should work to remove either one of these coatings assuming that the RMP is discontinued and no longer available.

I have a question on applying ZEP Wet-Look... I think is the same as Red Max. I put on 2 coats last night & will be applying the last 2-3 coats on tonight. I see several long streaks from what I think was putting it on too thick on the roof. Will the streaks blend in/go away after applying the other coats or should I try getting them off before going further? Thanks

No they won't. I did mine with Red Max and as it was in the evening I had some runs that I had not noticed. They don't cover up - or come off easily. I have been searching for some was remover, so far it seems to not be available any more. Not quite sure what to do about the streaks.

Use the Zep remover, i think it was $7.95/ gallon at Our Lowes here. It will strip it fast. You may be able to get by with some strong 12% ammonia. wear gloves for both. We had the same problem when we worked on my Brotherinlaws Scamp and just stripped that area and started over . my experience was that The runs seem to collect dirt over time and show up as dark areas. He wasn't as picky as I am so he still has a couple on the roof. You can't get in too big of a hurry and you need to spread it out thin and even and I think the polyglo applicator or synthetic chamois does the best job of that. It will take 4-5 coats

I think that I would hit the runs with some very fine wet sand paper on a flat sponge before stripping it, I think it will blend in ok. I just finished my Casita today and I used a face cloth folded 4 ways as an aplicator, it work well just keep ringing it out to eliminate the runs. my biggest problem was to keep from trapping any dirt beneath the RM by the way RM is a product of ZEP

Hi Folks: I just stripped the Red Max from my Scamp. It had been on for approx. 4 yr. I could not find the Red Max stripper so I used Zep floor stripper. I followed the directions on the label. It did a wonderful job and it was fairly easy. Once applied I scrubbed with a green pad and only had to do two small twice. Washed good with BK and reapplied 4 coats of Red Max. Looks great. Very pleased with Red Max and Zep products.

Yes, but wear sunglasses as a precaution.
