I have a 24ft rear bath and leave it out in the sun. The finish is beginning to chalk. Any suggestions?

Bruce, I understand the 2009 models will be out soon, that might work.

Hi Mel,

That would be one heck of a price for just a shine. There MUST be a better solution.

Try GelGloss. It's available at most stores. I just picked up some from Camping World. I've used it on fiberglass sailboats and campers for years. If it's chalky already, it may take a couple of coats to get a nice sheen back, and perhaps an orbital buffer, but it's great stuff and relatively inexpensive.

Sam and Roger thanks for your replys. I will probably go with the Gel Gloss and give it a try. If that doesn't work, later I'll try the Wizard products

Hi Bruce
I tried everything on my own with no luck, I fnally took it to a detail shop, After my many efforts, I was so sure they could not do it I had them prove it in a small area. I autherized the job($250) it came out beautiful. Now I can and have maintained it by hand without problems. I would do it again, well worth every penny. see you soon George B

I've been using Poli Glow for a year and it gets my vote. Easy to a apply, no buffing, so far long-lasting.

It would help if everyone would list the model (year) of their coach.

I talked to the body shop guy at the dealer I bought some of my motorhomes at. he is a good guy. If you have really bad chalking he said to use comet cleaner. It would be an abrasive and help you cut through and then to put a good coat or wax on and keep it on.

Woops, my post of Sept 20th was incomplete.
For preparation (oxidation, etc.) I use Poli Glow's companion product "Poli Prep."

has anyone tried the once-a-year polymer called Nu Finish

I've used it on fiberglass for years, pretty cheap at WalMart too!
