Lol... I used RedMax last year... But Lowes is too far away. It looks and smells the same, and goes on just as easy.

I was at the Lowes in Westland, MI last week and they were selling off the Red Maxx Pro 3 for $5 a gallon. Maybe elsewhere?

I, as well as several of my friends have used Zep floor wax (available in Canada at Home Depot and Red Max available at Lowes, both the same product) and after 2 years (with an application every year) the end results are simply amazing. The key is to make sure all the old finish is removed.

Update: I did my 86 Burro 17 ( which have hopeless dull chalky finish that nothing would help) with Red Max 2 years ago. After 5 coats it looked pretty good. Enough for people to ask if it was new. Parked it for the winter without washing it in the garage. It still looked pretty good this spring, so I just camped. It got more dirt on it so I washed it( dirt almost fell off of it) and put another coat of Red Max on it. Now it's even more shiney and looks great. I started with a gallon of Red Max and still have a gallon. It sure doesn't take much. By the way that last coat went on like dusting a table.
I forgot to mention the original finish was scarred up from someone trying to clean it with a scouring pad. These scars gathered dirt and looked even worse.
With the Red Max the scars are invisible and gather no more dirt!

Gelcoat repairs still to do

Will try Zep floor wax after all to oxide is gone. Have used buffing compound and wax so far and each time it gets a little darker and a bit more yellow begining to look like the colour in our bedroom; may even get to match the shower inside. So far did 3 heavy aplications in the spring and will do more soon, then remove some small painted coverups, patch the Gelcoat then will try the Zep product.

I have noticed a slight powdering on the surface of mine this winter, (8 months after application) but it comes off if brushed lightly with the finger. I will wash it in the spring, and apply another coat. Anybody who sees it is incredulous about the age of the trailer.

I was so skeptical of this, it just seems wrong. I didn't have much to lose, though.

Before:


roof half cleaned with bar keepers friend and scotch brite (it gets much duller when dry, but clean):



After 5 coats of floorwax and 2 months of dirt collecting:



Well worth the $200 in vinyl and floor wax, to me.

I think you're two yrs. from a re-ap. like anything it will never look better than day 1 but wash and tow over that time is a bargain. The blue Vinyk looks good.

Some great information in this thread.

Although my job turned out very well. I cannot seem to get rid of the faint 'brush marks'. I used a very fine microfiber cloth and 7-8 thin coats. You cannot feel the 'brush marks' but at certain angles you can see them. I even thinned the last coat with 50% water which helped but they can still be seen in direct light. Essentially you can see which direction the product was applied. It is not something that could be picked up with a camera so I won't post a pic.

I was wondering if everybody is getting a perfectly smooth (spray booth) type finish or if my results are more typical. Could I be putting it on too thin and not having enough product to flow out?
