I've used them both, and still don't really know my preference. Usually it comes down to which one the store has when I need more.

Ours still needs a good cleaning and waxing when the weather warms up - it still has Arizona and New Mexico bugs on it. I guess I MIGHT let you come wash and wax mine......

It's just not the same as doing one's own trailer, but you do have beer, right?

Totally agree, and unlike their Cleaner/Wax flows much better during application and easier to wipe off. If not the best, then definitely one of the best and easiest to use.

Waxed my New 5.0 TA

I'm overwhelmed with info and can't find a single article that isn't under ten thousand words...

So what is the correct process, in order, in restoring fiberglass that is starting to look dull and chalky?

Sounds like a pretty sleazy company, but if the stuff works...
The PTFE is in there to be slippery... and make that water bead off.
Think I'll just submit my posts to you before I post them.
