Exterior cleaning of anodized skin

Anyone use Everbrite on the exterior of an AS or Avion that is anodized? If so, how did you apply it and what were the results. Search function didn't help much. Thanks. Jim

Ive used Par-Fe, etc. A friend provided me a way that he cleans/shines his. The last item he uses is floor wax, email me if your interested, I'll get the process out and send it to you.

Vivilon or Sharkhide or Everbrite. The problem is deterioration and how to renew it. I've decided to stay away from those.

I will work with EaCo Chem and using Restore. But TT is too big to wax.

Decided to try waxing. Helps a lot. My arms are going to be as big as they were twenty years ago by the time I get done. I scrubbed first with Bon Ami. Using kit wax. Brightens everything up but some if the streaks and splotches show through. Much better than before. 1984 30P. 9.1 meter, twin beds rear bath, everything seems to work.. Peace, jim

Try some MaryKate Aluminum Cleaner buffered for anodized. Jamestown or West Marine. Small sections. See thread on VK sub forum.

If you'll run it through Blue Beacon and work with manager on two step cleaning (first acid, then alkaline) you will do yourself a favor. I did my current one twice in two days due first to appearance and second due to ice, snow mud and rain the next day. The managers are motivated. It is a good job.

Walk the trailer and blue tape decals or other you do not want that hot water high pressure to hit. Walk with line supervisor to crew and talk about jalousies, etc. I stand at door to drive to observe and make any corrections.

It is a nice difference. Cheap at three times price.

Then you can get out Bon Ami.
