How To Protect and Maintain Your RV All Year Around with TopCoat® Products

Recreational Vehicles (RVs) bring fun and enjoyment for everyone util it comes time to clean, protect, and maintain everything that gets dirty after a trip. Fortunately, you can use TopCoat® products to save time and money in cleaning, protecting, and maintaining the exterior and interior of your RV.

RVs have many different surfaces that are subject to dirt, grime, road debris, and staining elements for both the exterior and interior. Because an RV usually serves as your home away from home, you’ll want to keep it just as clean as you would your main home. TopCoat® offers a variety of products to help clean your RV, protect its surfaces, and maintain those cleaned surfaces for your many years of ownership.

Use TopCoat® Products to Clean the Outside Of Your RV and Protect It From The Elements

Cleaning and Prep

Cleaning the exterior of an RV is somewhat like that of any car, truck, or SUV. The difference with an RV is that you have much larger surfaces to clean, which is why you will want to protect those surfaces using TopCoat® products like TopCoat® F11® or TopCoat® Crystaleen® so you do not have to continually wash your RV after each trip saving you valuable time and money. TopCoat® F11® and TopCoat® Crystaleen® provide an easy release surface for bugs to be easily removed as well.

To clean and prep the surfaces of your RV we recommend using TopCoat® PolyWash®. TopCoat® PolyWash® is a water-based formula that doesn’t use any solvents or abrasive compounds making it safe for any surface, paint, or graphics of an RV to remove dirt and grime. TopCoat® PolyWash® is also in an ultra-concentrated formula allowing you to use as little as 1oz per gallon of water to cover those large areas of an RV, which can also be used in a sprayer or foam cannon for those hard-to-reach areas.

Protecting and Maintaining 

After the exterior of your RV has been washed using TopCoat® PolyWash®, you can then apply TopCoat® F11® or TopCoat® F11PRO® to any surface to provide a sealant to protect it from the outside elements or grime that you may encounter out on the road when traveling. TopCoat® F11® is the perfect formula for maintaining the exterior of your RV on any type of surface no matter the material, which provides a hydrophobic treatment that repels water thus keeping your RV clean longer. After the application of TopCoat® F11®, TopCoat® Spritz® can be used for quick detailing of your RV, which is safe for all surfaces including paint, fiberglass, metal, chrome, glass, plastics, rubber, vinyl, leather, and more.

TopCoat® TireDress® can be used to complete the exterior cleaning and treatment of your RV to coat your tires with the perfect enhancement. TopCoat® TireDress® gives your RV’s tires a slight sheen without leaving a thick and greasy finish that would otherwise sling onto your RV’s exterior surface when driving off. In addition to TopCoat® TireDress®’ anti-sling technology, it lasts a long time and doesn’t wash off from rain or puddles. TopCoat® TireDress® can also be used on other rubber surfaces on your RV inside and out for the perfect deep blackening look and finish. 

For the ultimate in exterior protection, TopCoat® Crystaleen® can be used as a do-it-yourself 2-step application ceramic. TopCoat® Crystaleen® can be used on your RV to save yourself time and money versus having it done by a “professional” costing upwards of $1500. Best of all, TopCoat® Crystaleen® is extremely durable providing 5+ years of protection and 7H hardness that flexes and bends instead of becoming brittle after it is cured. The hydrophobic properties of TopCoat® Crystaleen® will give your RV the best protection from the outside elements and long-lasting protection from road dirt and grime that may otherwise quickly build up after traveling hundreds of miles.

Use TopCoat® products to clean and maintain the interior of your RV

TopCoat® HPS® (High-Performance Sealer) can be used to clean and protect the interior surfaces of your RV. HPS goes on clean leaving no oily residue to deal with while providing a protective layer to help prevent build-up and make future cleaning quicker and easier. The water-based formula of TopCoat® HPS® ensures that it is safe to apply to virtually any interior surface of your RV whether you use it on your RV paint, fiberglass, metal, chrome, glass, plastics, rubber, vinyl, leather, bath, shower walls, shower doors, mirrors, counters, grills, granite, appliances, and more.

The best part of using TopCoat® HPS® in the interior of your RV is that it is a water-based formula that is non-toxic and environmentally friendly making it safe to use around children and pets. 

The benefits of using TopCoat® products to protect and maintain your RV prolongs the life of your investment. Using TopCoat® products will help ensure that you don’t have to worry about spending thousands of dollars to repaint or re-wrap the surfaces of your RV because you’ve taken the necessary precautions to protect it. Using TopCoat® products on your RV to clean and protect its surface will help prolong the life of your RV’s exterior and interior thus protecting your investment for many years to come.
