Gel coat oxidation

Has anyone here on the forum ever used Zep floor wax to shine an oxidized gel coat on their RV? If so, did you run into any problems? I've been watching some YouTube videos and everyone of them says it works amazing, but I'd like to hear from you all.
What kind of surface prep needed done?
Did it cover the oxidation and look good after a couple of coats?

Here is the product.
Wet-Look Floor Polish - Details

Here is one of the many videos.

3M make a Restorer & wax, it a compound and wax together.
I used it on my work and play, the black looked like a chalkboard, but after shined like second hand brand new! !

I would stick with 3m products, A little more work but you just the saw the proof in the pudding above..... Don't let the oxidation get away from you. the more the harder it is to get the shine back..

Yes, I bought a 33.8 oz. Bottle for $49.99 a west marine, but amazon has it for 30 something.

Zep floor polish by it self cannot nor will not cure oxydation . The only thing you can do is lots and lots of elbow grease to restore the finish. From that point on you have to decide what to use to maintain the finish. Personally using a product designed to shine vinyl floors is not my idea of doing that.
