Greetings from southern Ontario

Hello,

We have been camping in our Surveyor since we bought it in 04. Moved from Newfoundland to southern Ontario in 05. The trailer is sure starting to look much older than it actually is, so I hope to pick your collective brains so I can sort it out.

Cheers!

Lee

Welcome to the forum!

Are you looking to brighten up the fiberglass exterior?

Dave

to the forums! We don't have a whole lot of information to go with - could you give us more details? What looks older than it is?

Well, outside, I can't seem to stay ahead of the oxidation on the gelcoat, but I was at an RV dealer today that said they use Vim household cleaner, I picked some up to try but I am open to other ideas. My strip kit has deteriorated and is in poor shape as well, the outside looks ancient, and I wax it twice a year.

Inside, I have an issue with water pouring off the edge of the awning and onto the sliding window, I have water stained vinyl flooring now that is very unattractive, I will replace it, but I have to figure out how to stop the water first.

Thanks for the welcome folks! There seems to be a lot of knowledge in here, I look forward to learning!

Cheers!

Oxidation can happen fast. I saw the difference with my TT at around 18 months due to oxidation but since then had it removed and a protective coating applied. Some of the plastic hardware that tends to turn yellowish can be painted like speaker grills or the entry door window frame.

Water spots or markings are hard to get rid of. Hopefully someone will have an answer for you.

Take care.
