Five years ago we camped in our RV next to a gorgeous motorhome. Its occupants were full time RVers so their rig got a lot of sun --the exterior of their fiberglass unit was shinny with no cracks or aging. The owner told us he uses Fukken wax on it -a tip he got from a trucker.

You spray on, wait just a minute or two and wipe down. Easy, easy application. It contains a UV protectorant too and can be used on chrome, glass, plastic Etc.

We put it on our RV once a year and on all our vehicles too. It costs about $16 plus shipping. One (or maybe part of a second can) should do my greenhouse panels. Lightbulb just came on today - an experiment so maybe the HF panels will last much longer.

Find it at www.fukkenwax.com. Made in the USA

The concept sounds, well err, sound. I use 2001 UV proctectant on my pool liner above the water line annually and get twice the use from it. The guy I buy my liners from said not to tell anyone or he would be out of business Hilarious! . I also use it on my hot tub cover and have extended it's life as well. My panels (4 years old ) show aging and will need replaced, but it definitely will be kept in mind for replacements. I plan to go to a GH supply in Lancaster to buy my replacements and want to use a triple wall polycarbonate at the very least.

Fukken Wax has heptane in it - a hydrocarbon which should NOT be used on polycarbonate.
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

Ok. So @Eric4home, where do I find 2001. Is it as easy to apply as fukken wax?

Didn't realize that problem with Fukken. Good thing I have not done it yet!

You should be able to find 2001 about anywhere that sells car products. It comes in a spray bottle like Armor All.
