Thumbs up Poli Glow

The nose cap of the Montana was pretty faded and oxidized to the point that it was going to take hours with a buffer and lots of wax. Read about a product called Poli Glow in Trailer Life magazine - they seemed to like it so decided to give it a try.

Not to bad on the effort end and I am really pleased with the end result. Here is a link to their web site:

https://poliglow-int.com/

$75 for the kit. I ordered the oxidizer remover powder, but did not need it. There are videos on how to use and it was all pretty much as advertised. Put it on right over the graphics - they are giving up at the edges but they shined up as well. I used about 1/4 of the product for the entire nose, so have plenty left for touch up and redo. They say 6 months for adding another coat and annually to do it again. It took me about 3 hours of scrubbing effort on one day and about 2 hours to apply polish the next. Worst part was up and down the ladder. Helps a lot if you "neal" the front end prior to start.

If it holds up to the bugs and washing, I will really be pleased, but it looks as good as new at the moment.

Thanks for the tip I'll be giving this product a try also. I hate the dull look of our front cap. I have used many different products only to be disappointed after all the work I put into them. My next try was going to have the cap painted but this may save me a few bucks.

I know a lot bash Poliglow and claim it's just floor wax but I like it on the nose of camper. I used to have to get on ladder to scrub bugs off. Now they come off easier with brush from the ground. No ladder needed. Have not done the whole camper but I may after my test period is up. Had it on nose almost two years now.

I have read about this product in regard to keeping/maintaining exterior of the Montana. Anyone used it? And is it effective?

I'll be 78 October and it is less effort than polishing. It does take a good bit of time. Just not strenuous.
