Roof Protection with Mop & Glo or Future acrylic floor polish

I have noticed that a number of Winnebago coach owners have mentioned in this blog that they have used Mop & Glo or Future acrylic floor polish to protect their Fiberglass roofs. I am curious how these products have stood up over the past year or so.

I just cleaned all the chalk off my roof (and the streaks down the side of the coach) and want to put a protective coating back on the roof. As I read the labels of the two floor polishes, I see that they have no UV protectors in then. I cleaned and waxed my roof a year ago. Waxing involved hand-rubbing Eagle One Nanowax on the roof, but, obviously, it didn't last a year.

I also would like to hear from those who have had long-term success with other roof treatments.

Check Collinite Auto, Marine and Industrial Wax Products Official Site » Collinite --They have products for fiberglass that look like they may hold up for awhile, maybe better than just car waxes. Some of their products are made for fiberglass boats so they should work on fiberglass RVs.

In May before our trip to AK, I cleaned and then coated the roof with a Johnson's brand liquid floor wax with a sponge mop. I have inspected it several times and I'm very happy with it. For what it's worth.

Mop n' Glow is cellulose product. It will turn dark after a rather short period of time. Stripping it off will really be a major job. It is not even recommended by Armstrong for most of their vinyl floors, unless you strip them frequently. There are products out there for marine fiberglass that may be more productive.

303 Aerospace Protectant sounded interesting. Here is the scoop by the manufacturer......wonder if it will work on my bald spot?

303 is THE LEADER in UV screening technology. 303 Aerospace Protectant really is like "SPF 40 Sunscreen ... For Your Stuff." Regular use gives 100% Prevention of UV caused slow-fade with regular use. No other "protectant" beautifies as intensely, protects as powerfully or lasts as long.

The World's Most Manufacturer-Recommended product:
Because of its enduring cosmetic properties, the resistance of 303-treated surfaces to dust, soiling, and staining, its water repellency and unparalleled protective characteristics, manufacturers worldwide recommend 303 Aerospace Protectant.

303 Aerospace Protectant keeps UV-sensitive materials “like new” year after year. Use on Rubber: Tires, neoprene, latex, door and trunk seals, weather-stripping, EPDM rubber roofs, CV boots, waders, wet suits. Vinyl: Convertible tops (and the clear vinyl windows), isinglass, marine seating, tonneau covers, car bras, covers, spa covers, pool covers. Inflatable boats: Hypalon, PVC and urethane blends. Gelcoat fiberglass: Boats, RV’s, snowmobiles, jet ski’s. Plastics/acrylics/polycarbonates: Lexan® and acrylic panels/windows/windshields/covers. Carbon-fiber/resin composites: Fishing rods, “nude” bike frames. Finished leather: Upholstery, motorcycle leather, trim, tack, fine apparel. Pool & Patio: Plastic furniture (not fabric), pool inflatables, slides, covers. Sailcloth: Dacron® and monofilm.
