    5th Wheel fiberglass trailer

    Hello,

    I was hoping that someone can point me in the right direction. I am new to all of this. I have a 42 foot camper that is starting to oxidize and getting a dull look to it. I want to clean it up and make it shine again. I just bought a new Makita polisher. First i am wondering what will be the best to use on this to restore it. I have been looking at the M50 marine/rv cleaner wax for a one step process. Will this do a good job? I have also seen Maguiars Flagship Premium Cleaner wax out there. Is this better than the M50? Can i use the Flagship Premium on my 5th Wheel? Last question, what pads do i use on my polisher that will work best for these products? I do know the Makita came with two hook and look pads. Will these work for what i am doing? Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Fry5654,

    Welcome to Meguiar's Online. If the RV is chalky, we would suggest starting with our M77132 Marine/RV Heavy Duty Oxidation Scrub. This is kind of like an abrasive soap, which can be applied with a boat brush, which will easily knock down much of the chalky oxidation. Then after, Meguiar's Marine/RV M50 Cleaner Wax is often used in this situation as a great one step. Many users will even apply the product with a wool pad on a rotary, like our WRWHC7 Soft Buff Rotary Wool Heavy Cutting Pad.

    This would be a great combination to make some serious improvement in a few amount of steps.

    Feel free to post further questions. We are happy to help.

    Nick,

    Thank you for the reply! I really appreciate it. I am new to all of this and want to do a great job. If the camper goes well, my plan is to move on to my truck with some of Meguiars other products. The one thing I did want to know, is the Flagship premium cleaner wax going to be a little better than the M50 cleaner wax. Can I use the Flagship premium cleaner wax on my RV?

    Hi Fry5654,

    You are very welcome! We are looking forward to hearing how it goes. Feel free to post pictures if you would like! In regards to Flagship Premium Cleaner Wax, this product will protect better, but M50 Marine/RV Cleaner Wax will clean better for you situation. We would go with #50 Marine/RV Cleaner Wax.

    Nick,

    Thanks again. The reason I was asking about the Flagship premium cleaner wax was because I had already purchased it. I had read some different articles about it before I realized about this online forum. I had not tried it yet. Winter doesn

    Sorry Nick, for some reason my reply got cut off. If you feel the M50 cleaner wax will do a better job then the Flagship premium cleaner wax, I can return it and get the M50. Also, is it ok to apply these cleaner wax

    Hi Fry5654,

    Yes for you goals on this camper, #M50 Marine/RV Cleaner Wax would be our best recommendation.

    It looks like your post got cut off again, regarding application of the cleaner waxes. To reiterate what we discussed previously, #M50 Cleaner Wax can be applied with a rotary & a wool pad, if, that is, what you were asking.

    Nick,

    Sorry about my replies getting cut off. For some reason my phone was not allowing me to reply right. I did go ahead and buy some of the oxidation scrub and some M50 Cleaner wax. The two other things I tried to ask was, can I apply this stuff in the sun. My camper is 42 feet long and it is hard to find somewhere to pull it into. The second question was the camper decals, can I apply both of these products on the decals.

    Thank you

    Hi Fry5654,

    Not recommended to be applied in the sun, or to decals, for both products. In regards to finding shade, and not being in the sun, what is more important is to not work on a warm or hot surface. Maybe try working early in the morning or late in the afternoon. In regards to the decals, the Heavy Duty Oxidation Scrub would likely scratch them very bad, and the M50 Cleaner Wax has the potential to scratch & haze the surface of the decal. Some people do apply M50 to decals with success, but we cannot officially recommend it, since it was not designed for & tested on vinyl decal surfaces, and since it does have the risk of hazing/scratching.

    We understand this can make the project more difficult, to work around the decals, but unfortunately it's part of it.

    Hope this helps. Keep in touch!
