Oh and wear gloves. It's a watery salution but dries on your skin and fingernails and leaves a durable shine. The stripper on a rag gelled it up and took it off no problem. The gallon off stripper was far less money, I just can't remember how much.
This stuff sounds much more like a clear coat then wax. Especially the Zep. Don't see any harm in it just doubt there is any 'wax' in it. Could be wrong. Anyone try Nu Finish for cars? No wax.

You may be correct about the wax part. They refer to it as a polish & claim it is buffable according to the label. It also states it can be used on no-wax floors. The difference is this is capable of holding up to foot traffic!

Took the MoHo out and gassed it up..... #1 to get it done before prices go up more then the 3-4 cents it already has and #2 get ready for the trip this Thursday.
Also, took items out to the unit and stowed them in preparation for the weekend.

Thanks to a great idea someone posted on the Rockwood Mini Lite fan club on Facebook, last weekend I attached my 2509's counter extension using folding shelf brackets. Here are the results:

Protection against UV?

Hello, so far I like what I have read, a quick question for you, is it UV protected? I have read everything I can find on the wet look but nothing about protecting from UV...
Thank you.

It was a rainy day today so I got a few things done on the toy hauler.

We've never liked the stability of the grab handle at the main entrance door. It seemed flimsy and was actually starting to bend the outside wall where it attaches. Made a backing plate from ⅛ inch stainless. Since it's almost impossible to match the white paint on the trailer I painted it black. Seems to fit right in with all the other black doors and panels.



After finishing that there was still daylight left and it was still raining so I installed the recently delivered LED stop/turn/running light strips. The lower lights, even though they are LED, just didn't seem to stand out much and I really prefer more visibility for the aft end of the trailer.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Buy no means am I using the forum as a selling agent, just spreading information on a very good product.
Does anyone know if it can be applied over vinyl decals?

Now that is cool. Where did you buy the suction cups?

Suction cups are 1/2 price at CW. The harness came from Amazon.

With a week of boondocking in the San Juans right around the corner, today I did the ol' "replace two crappy hybrid 12-volts with two GC2 6-volt golf cart batteries" switcheroo...and instantly gained about 45% more battery capacity. If that still doesn't satisfy me, I'll have my repair guy fabricate a battery tray that'll hold 4 of them.

I also replaced the shower faucet after the original sprung a small leak in its internal connector pipe while camping last weekend.

Be careful and pay attention to your wall.
I've read reports on other forums where the weight on the suction cup(s) pulled the outer skin away from the bonded wall.

Is that extension the Corian ? If so how did you attach the screws to it? I see some plywood, how did you attach it to the Corian ?
Did you reinforce the inside of the cabinet ?

I really like this mod !

Thanks,

Not sure about the weight, but you are right, the suction might be strong enough with some of these "industrial power" suction cups to deform the outer skin enough to break it away from the underlying Styrofoam.

The glue used is way stronger than the Styrofoam the outer wall is bonded to. IT will fail before the glue bond.

Ok, here's the latest on what I've done with my trailer. Moved it away from the meth infested city it was in and to a more rural, on site family run, decently secured, clean, cheaper storage yard.
