In Post #795, Cassie asked if there had been any updates from people who had used Zep (RedMax Pro) on their trailers and I see that several people have responded, mostly with positive experiences.
To chime in, we first applied Zep back in the spring of 2013 (5 coats after a very thorough cleaning). Then each following spring we've re-cleaned and applied a couple of more coats. Overall we've been pleased with the product, but now we're beginning to see some chipping, flaking and yellowing especially in any area that gets a lot of abuse - like the front corners, the wheel fenders, and the roof. Guess it's time for a stripping before we re-apply again.
I have some questions about the stripping process though. The stripper directions say to dilute it and apply it with a mop and then let it sit for 5-8 minutes before wiping off and rinsing. As someone said in a previous post, that's easy to do on a flat surface like a floor, but not so easily done on vertical surfaces. I think someone sprayed it on full strength from a handheld pump spray bottle? Any other tips? I'm concerned about this stuff running down the sides of the trailer and into the storm drains. Any advice from those who have stripped Zep off their trailers would be much appreciated.
