Exterior Oxidation. What do you use?

I noticed that the exterior of my rv is beginning to show a slight oxidation on the front and side that takes the most sun. I was wondering what others use to remove the oxidation and seal their exterior?

Pro-Tec Nu Paint Moisturizer and Pro-Tec Sealant Polish.

The nu paint moisturizer will remove the oxidation and the sealant polish will seal the surface with excellent UV protection.

If the oxidation is light you can use the nu paint moisturizer with a D/A polisher and wool pad or heavy cut foam pad. Otherwise, for heavy oxidation, best to use a rotary buffer and wool pad.

The sealant can be applied and removed with a D/A or orbital polisher.

This is what I used, it was recommended in another thread a while back, did a really nice job. Used a buffer and terry cloth pads to apply and remove.

That's what these products are for. Boats, RV's, anything with a gel coat finish.

I've seen Nu Paint bring heavily oxidized boat gel coat back to near showroom quality. It's a micro abrasive close to about 6000 grit.

My trailer after a polish and seal. I used orbital polisher with a wool bonnet to work the nu paint moisturizer. And the same orbital with a terry cloth bonnet to apply the sealant, then a microfiber bonnet to buff off the sealant.
