I saw your oops in another thread and had to smile and say thanks. So many people are putting their questions in the wrong section lately.
That's quite a start and I'm looking forward to seeing your renovations.
I see leaves and flowers on trees in the background. That won't happen here for another month and we still have snow along the north side of the house.

Yea the weather here is GREAT right now trying to get as much done as I can before it gets so hot you can't stand to be out there on the concrete, when it gets like that I have to haul it to the back yard and pull it around a big tree chasing the shade

If you look close to the last 2 pictures you can see gray specks in the finish... I though it was just dirt but I cleaned it with everything I could think of with no luck,so I started wet sanding to whole camper with 400 grit sand paper and it still wouldn't come off. I figured out the guy I got it from had let get covered in green algae ast some time then washed and now it was deep in the finish so I took 2/3 bleach and 1/3 water and started on the roof where if it faded it really bad it wouldn't matter but worked out great..You can barely see in the next to the last picture 1/2 is not cleaned and 1/2 looking pretty good....I finally got it clean and will start putting the coats of REDMAX next...

A few more on the progress..Sanded the entire camper with 400 grit sandpapoer and will put several coats of Redmax on it soon..Added the new strips and decals, since I bought this one from a good friend of mine that is a "BIG TENNESSE VOL's FAN" I went with Crimson Tide "Red" Showed him some pictures last night but he wasn't too impressed..

Anyone knows who sells RedMax Pro in Canada? Any Website located in Canada? Can't find it!

This reminds me my old Trillium 1300. I really loved that little FGRV. I now have a Trillium 5500 but would like to revamp the exterior a little. You are doing a very good job!

You might try Home Depot and look for ZEP WETLOOK FLOOR FINISH in a blue jug they are both the same best I can tell..Redmax is made by ZEP... I think Lowe's carry's the Redmax and Home Depot the ZEP or that's what's here in the states..Hope this helps RANDY

Eagle one makes several wheel cleaners and they all are in the same color and shape bottle you have to make sure and get the MAG WHEEL CLEANER..Also at one time it was called MAG WHEEL ETCHING CLEANER so watch what you get..This stuff when you spray it on ant type aluminum it foams up like a alka seltzer then just wash it off....It's usually around $5.99 a bottle but right now Oreilly's has a sale on it 2 bottles for $7.00.... I bought 6 bottles all they had.........RANDY
