I assumed it was because I had spent a lot of time in New Mexico in the sun and heat and wind. I used some barkeepers friend and cleaned it up and applied a few coats of Zep let it dry winterized and put on a cover for the winter feeling like I was abandoning it! Just took off the cover and have found some peeling at the edges again! I'm guessing I have done something wrong. Any thoughts?
did you use zep stripper and redoo the whole thing? If not is the peeling where the old meets the new?
mine lasted 2 years out in the So Cal sun and then I stripped it all and recoated. The stripper works well with hot water. Redoing it all again was half as hard as the first time.
The only other thing I can think of is you didn't get the bar keepers washed off well before recoating.
