paint oxidation question?

Had a question what others are using if they have removed the oxidation from their rv or travel trailer? My rv is 10 years old and is white but has faded some and I want to bring back as much as possible the original white finish? What products have worked for you and if you have any tips or advice when doing the finish? Thanks

I saw this product advertised in Trailer Life, and it looks pretty good for re-storing faded finish to like new.

Here's a link with info and videos about the product. You can buy it in a kit.

I would imagine the type of surface (Filon, Fiberglass w/Gel Coat, Aluminum, etc.) would influence the process/products of removing oxidation. Along with the suggestions of the JOF members, I would also check the websites of the surface material manufactures.

I don't recall the products listed (rubbing compound, wax, etc.), but the manufacture of the Filon material to the RV industry did have some recommendations on addressing surface oxidation.

Like Bob said above, it will depend on the exact materials to some extent. That being said, if I had a flat-sided trailer, I would be looking at some of the marine products on the market. They have some pretty bold claims, and if half of them are even some what true, you could use them to get a nice shine back on your trailer that would be likely to last. If it can handle being exposed to the water day in and day out, it can certainly handle your TT sides...

Just a thought.
