View Full Version : Motorhome needs some work

I have a 2012 motorhome which has full paint with 4 coats of clear coat.
I have personally maintained it by washing with mild soap and water and have hand waxed it yearly with Meguier's Flagship Marine wax.
It has worked well over the years being baked in the Arizona sun but now I think I need to do a bit more.
The clear coat is getting dull at the top of the exterior which I know I haven't gotten to for a while.


What I'm looking for is a product that will clear up the clear coat, wax and sealant in a All In One Product.
Does Meg have such a product?

I do have a variable speed Dual Action buffer but have not used it yet as I'm still learning which pad I need to use.

So this is where you can help me with you knowledge

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
Iggy

You shouldn't be using the Flagship product as this is designed for use on gel coat. Your clear coat is like the clear coat on a car so using a car polish and wax would be the way to go. You might try number 6 cleaner wax as a starting point. Apply with a polishing pad using your DA polisher. If that doesn't clear up the dull area try using Ultimate Polish and then number 6.

How big is your motor home? My coach is 28 ft. and takes a good day to do a complete wax job.

Hi Iggy,

Based on your description, we might suggest our Flagship Premium Paint Polish & Protectant. It is designed for Marine & LP Paints, but works great as a mild cleaner wax on automotive paint also. This can be used on a foam finishing or foam polishing pad. More information can be referenced at the following below link:

Flagship Premium Marine Wax is actually perfectly OK to use on a clear coat finish, but thanks for commenting! It is true, some of our Marine/RV products one would not want to use on an automotive finish, mainly products with aggressive cleaning ability, like our #91 Power Cut Compound, #67 One Step Compound, and #49 Oxidation Remover.
