    Gel Gloss Heavy-Duty RV Cleaner & Wax works, however be prepared for lots of elbow grease. If it has heavy oxidization it may take 2 coats. Nothing is easy. :angry:

    If it is too far gone, all the elbow grease in the world won't bring it back, but will help. I'd try a small area first to see if it worth doing the entire motorhome. If not, Paint? I have an old 89 Class a and have used several kinds of wax, cleaner, restorer but can't recommend any special brand. I used a lot of rubbing, then more rubbing and then hand wax and then buffing with buffer. It does look pretty good for an ole gal, but does need a few paint tough ups here and there. ;)

    I kinda tried some stuff from wallmart (it was boat wash and polish)
    It seemed to work pretty good so i'm gonna go with it...
    It won't look like new but better than it did,,, At least now it has a shine...
    Thanks for all the input :) :) :) :) :)

    I am in the process of using Meguiars #49 and topping it with #56. Doing a great job.

    Gel coat is softer than car finishes so do not use regular rubbing compound to get rid of oxidation. Regular rubbing compound will take the gloss off the gel coat.

    StarBrite for fiberglass will "really" bring back the color. Takes off the oxidation. It is actually a marine product. rubs on and off easy. You will need a wax afterwards.
