I don't know if the treatment will work or not...worth a try. But Inland R.V does have replacements. I've probably had mine 7 or 8 years, and they still look fine.

There is a product sold at Lowes and Home depot and I cannot recall the name but it's easy to find. It comes in two kinds one for ABS and one for porcelian. You'll want the ABS stuff. You can get it in White and go to your local paint store and have it tinted any color you need. Goes on with a really GOOD brush with no streaks and made my 1972 International bat look just like it did in 1972. Brush in one direction only for the very best results. No muss and no fuss. No smell and drys overnight to a hard surface. Resist scratches and dings. Bob

I would think for light lenses, you are better off with the solution discussed earlier. It washes off without any residue. The stuff from Lowes/Home Depot is a coating.

Thumbs up Removing yellowing from plastic

Hi bugz42, was reading your post about removing yellowing from plastic and I would like to know if you could post or email the formula that you use to renew your bathroom sink and tub. Looks like it really does work great and I too wish not to paint my 1972 Airstream with POR. I am a new member to the forum and have found many helpful ways to help me in restoring Airstream and this would be a great way to save the original look. Thanks again for sharing another great idea. My e-mail address is everidges@gmail.com Thanks ok stan

I stumbled across this thread, and want to try it on my old light covers inside. They werre very yellow, so I painted with spray paint, which makes them look better, but when you turn the light on its yellow.
Gotta give this a shot.

Wow time sure flies. I can't believe how long it has been since we did this to our trailer. We still have our Airstream although we are probably going to be parting with it this summer. In any case the plastic still looks great! I am sure you will be happy with the results.
