i've found that if you use too much 303 it does as you described, use sparingly and spread it out then buff with a separate cloth... beautiful rig

Very nice looking. Now, get it out there and kill some bugs in your travels.

Funny thing is, I don't miss it. We are up at the lake camping and the only thing that makes me think about the missing awning is the 100 PMH tape on the side.

We have a 1000 deductible and still trying to decided to DIY or take it somewhere. One place quoted me 1030 for the awning while another one 850. Haven't had a claim with the insurance company for a long long time.

Agree, maybe too much. After it rained I noticed streaks everywhere especially around the darker areas. Never noticed it before on though. This is the first one we've had with paint and dark colors. You don't notice it in the white gelcoat. It'll need more elbow grease when we get home from camping.

LOL. We drove about 1.5 hours yesterday evening to our favorite park to enjoy the weekend. I swear I must have splattered 1000 gigantic bugs on the entire front end. Some of the bugs where so big they had landing gear on them. I wish there was a front bra available. Good thing is that the front end got a good coat of Collinite and it'll be pretty easy to clean.

I noticed that the upper grill's black paint is started to peel off. It appears as if it was originally a chrome grill that was sprayed painted in black. Anyone else having the same issue?

Looks great! Time to enjoy it.

I stopped at an RV wash in Arizona a couple of weeks ago to clean off the dirt from driving through the rain in Texas. Not only did the Georgetown come out nice and clean, but I had forgotten that my reddish-brown Jeep Wrangler toad was actually white...

Real pretty!! I have to google all the stuff you used to wash your rig with. Had never heard of it before. Ours is terribly dirty right now and will be going to Florida in about 2 weeks and need it to look nice and spiffy. Where do you buy your stuff?

Edited to say:

Googled it. Have to say I'm such a newbie at this. Does the 303 take care of the black streaks? That's the main problem with the rig right now. Someone told me to use Scrubbin Bubbles. No kidding. Does that work too?

Most dollar stores carry "Totally Awesome". Works good on black streaks. However, don't let it dry on your rig and it will take the wax with the streaks. If it does dry on the rig, you need to use soap and water to get it off. I use it sparingly. And re-wax the area I used it on.

I use 303 like I use to use Armor All. Tires, vinyl, colored plastics and rubber surfaces.

I get all of my stuff online usually Amazon or Ebay which ever one has it cheapest. 303 is just a UV protectant that is recommended for vinyl decals that are exposed to the sun. Wax is not good for decals. It won't help with black streaks. I used a spray specifically designed for RV streaks and it didn't work that well. I wonder if scrubbing bubbles will work. If you have old black streaks that are hard to remove from your gelcoat, try a light rubbing compound either by hand or with a buffer. I bought a really nice boat down in FL once that was basically new, but the owner left it outside for a few years. I took a buffer with compound and it looked like it just came off the showroom floor.

Edit: I also spray 303 on the dash, seats, all rubber moldings, slide seals, etc. Basically, anything rubber or vinyl that it is exposed to the sun. I even spray the tires with it. Heck, I love that stuff so much I don't use sunblock anymore. LOL
