Default Front cap fifth wheel camper

In the process of waxing our camper with your marine synwax. When we started on the front end cap, we noticed there is a slight haze, so I stopped. In double-checking to make sure it was fiberglass, according to the manufacturer, it is. Any suggestions on what I should use to clean and wax...Would like to remove the haze and accomplish a nice shine, like the rest of the camper.

Many times those fiberglass caps oxidize.

Try a polish on a small area and see if it removes the haze and leaves the surface shiny, ready for waxing.

No, I meant a paint polish. Something like our PowerPolish, or; to test an area, Scratch Remover.

The Power Polish Stage 1 or Marine PowerPlastic

PowerPolish (Stage 1) would be the appropriate paint-specific polish. You could also use Pre-Wax Cleaner, but I think you'll find if it's oxidation you may need several applications of it.

Im dealing with the same thing and have started with oxidation remover which improved the look 100% but trying to get the Gel Gloss finish back to new is what Im looking for from here.

Any advice?

neeltburn - your problem is an ideal use of our new Prosumer products. The Professional Rubbing Compound, part # 08612 with a dual action polisher and a cutting pad would be perfect. Follow that with 08712 Finishing Polish and a polishing pad on the DA for best results.

They can be difficult to find, so I'd suggest checking some on-line e-tailers.

I have the same problem with oxidation of the front cap. Is there something I can use to remove the oxidation and then polish the cap? We are on the road, so using a power polisher is not an option. I do have a cordless drill, so power balls can be used.

It's a little unorthodox, but you can try our Mag & Aluminum Polish with a cotton terry towel (it's more aggressive than foam or microfiber), but you really need to follow with our Rubbing Compound to refine the finish and then use a protective wax.
