Default Newbie needs advice on how to protect the finish of the roof

Hi There,

Just bought an 89 Dodge ram camper van yesterday, and it's the first one for my wife and I. I was wondering what is the best way to protect the roof. It looks to be fiberglass of somesort (definitely not metal), is there a specific product like a polish/wax that you should apply to protect the finish of the roof from rotting/cracking? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Alan

Try to figure out if it is paint on fiberglass or gelcoat.

If paint then wash & wax like any other automotive finish.

If it is gelcoat and it is dull and or chalky I currently use Protect All Fiberglass Oxidation Remover & Color Restorer



It requires some effort.

For wax, I use Protect All Polish, Wax & Treatment



It contains Carnauba wax and is the easiest wax I have ever used. Literally wipe on and wipe off. I use it on my car and my RV.
