Poly Glow - Who has used it and result So?

Gave up with waxing and polishing our 2016 Hurricane because it only lasts 6 months until oxidation and dulling comes back. I have read a few articles on Poly Glow that sound promising but wanted input from other RVers.

My experience was 1) expensive 2) labor intensive (what method isn't?) 3) once on, might yellow/peel 4) very hard to remove.
Others say it is excellent.

A coupla other threads on this

I have used it for years on each of my coaches. Works great when applied as directed. Following prep instructions is essential to a good result. First time requires 5-7 coats; renewal is 2-3 coats (every 9-12 mos depending on your climate.)
Search for PoliGlow and PolyGlow for the threads and some pics. I let my RV shop apply it.

I've been using Rejex (Amazon) every spring. So far it has worked well. Goes on a little bit easier than wax and it stays on throughout the season.

Don't use ZEP. I paid for wax and got ZEP without knowing and it started to flake off the next day and destroyed the finish on our decals. This was on the unit we traded back in April. This stuff is not for RVs regardless what some on the forums may say.

Not knowing what product a detailer was going to use on our last coach i learned it was poly glo. Coach looked awesome for a bit aver a year then some of it started wearing off in wind prone areas. I realized that reapplication is required every year and i wasn't about to spend that much every year. I tried to remove it and was unsuccessful, a real PITA to remove and i just lived with it. That experience with Poly Glo was a major decision point to trade in for a another new to us full body paint coach.

IMO i would NEVER use poly glow or other similar products. I still have some new poly glow products if anyones interested to test.

What i use now to wax the coach is wash wax all, takes me a bit over an hour to wax the complete 37' coach roof included. It's so easy i do it several times a year.
