Default Fiberglass Travel Trailer

Hello,


New member and currently using following products to care for our Oliver Elite 2 Travel Trailer. It has gel coat finish inside and out. Oliver puts beautiful finishes on their campers.

Started using Mothers Marine wash, Black Streak Remover, and Sythetic Wax.

There was light oxidation on one small section of the roof before using the Synthetic Wax. I can still see a little light oxidation and wanted to know the best way to remove the oxidation. Store Ollie in an airplane hangar when not camping.

Thanks,

Great looking camper trailer! And welcome to waxforum.com


To remove the remaining oxidation, I'd suggest our 08612 Professional Rubbing Compound and 08712 Professional Finishing Polish. You'll need a machine (ideally a DA buffer) with the appropriate pads.



I'd start with the Finishing Polish a try with a polishing pad - the old adage "start with the least aggressive method first" is good advice.


If that doesn't work to your satisfaction, step up to the Rubbing Compound on a cutting pad and then follow with the Finishing Polish with a finishing pad. Slow even passes with both products, and go up/down/ and left right alternating. Rewax afterwards.



These are specialty type products and can be difficult to find. Amazon stocks both of them if you have trouble finding them locally.


Let us know how that works.

Forrest,

Have not used a buffer in the past. Will check out the DA buffer, normally hand wax Ollie twice a year.

Will do on " old adage start with the least aggressive method first is good advice".

As another Ollie owner said, it "Glows" when cleaned and waxed. Ollie #75 hull is going on 4 years old and folks still say it looks brand new.

Really appreciate the reply, it may be a month or two before I can reply on results, always have a projects to do list.

Thanks,
