Same old problem...mold under the stone guard vinyl. Solution Question

Like so many have commented on over the years, the problem of mold growing under vinyl. Solution ??? Has anyone heard of, experienced, completed using the "Rhino or similar product style bed liner spray on material coverings?" Considering how difficult it is to remove the vinyl, wonder if roughing it up and applying this as a coating would work. Granted it is a Black rough textured finish, but wondering if it would appear to look similar to a bra but maybe hold up better getting beat up on the front of the coach. My particular Georgetown is a Grey/Black color scheme so would possibly blend in. Thanks and please don't fall off your seat laughing at this one. Thom

I know similar product to Rhino can be tinted to other colours if you would like. Reflex coating.

Had the same problem, I removed mine and wen t with PlastiDip....for less than $100, I have plenty of protection. Would not even consider spending 2K to put more film on. If you want to go over the existing film, I would use black plastidip to cover the ugly mold, if you are going to remove the existing film, go with clear plastidip and it will look 100% better

Thanks again for the information and link to the Reflex coating system. Have contacted the company and requested information and locations near Atlanta. Thom

Carmen, Using the Plastik Dip was this a spray on or did you actually "paint" it on. When you say Plastik Dip, I am envisioning the material used to dip tools etc. Thanks Thom

I have Rhino in the bed of pick up. I do not haul often over 8 years Here in Florida the sun has beaten upon it, thinned down to the body paint in areas. I'm sure the sun in Georgia is just as intense. It is dulled by the sun - do you really want this on the RV??

Good point. Wondering if the coatings would be more adapt at being able to be re-coated or sealed on the vertical service of the coach rather than in flat horizontal. We do keep the coach under cover so would not be exposed to weather all the time. Do appreciate the comment.....did not even think of that. Thom
