And 303 on your propane tank cover will keep it black and not faded grey.

As well as other plastic around your rig.

303

About 100 or so bad reviews where people complain on Amazon that 303 makes their stuff look worse than before using it. Fading, grey spots, streaks, or plain just didnít work. That concerns me a little. Hmmm.

It's at 92% with 4-5 stars, I wouldn't let the 100 out of 2300 concern you. There's no possible way it's going to look worse after using it. It's NOT a restoration product, if you didn't take care of your stuff before using this, that's a you problem.

I understand the overwhelming good reviews. Just trying to explain their experiences, like the guy who sprayed it on his LP tanks and wasn’t happy. Whatever those 100 people did wrong, I would like to not repeat. That’s all.

favorite failure review

Case in point, the RV product at the link below has 300 reviews and averages a 4 star rating. I bought THREE of these and they ALL FAILED in the exact manner described by this HILARIOUS review.

I'd bet people treat it like armor all and just spray and wipe. It specifically says to spray on a clean not in direct sunlight surface and WIPE DRY. It does take a little more effort but i'll never use another product for UV protection.

303 makes a bevy of products. Make sure you buy the correct one. Follow directions. Use it on my motorcycle, 5th wheel, truck and Jeep. Never an issue. Again, follow directions. PS, loved that Camco product review. Hilarious.

If you scroll back up to wildest's post #15 and click on "I use this" it will take you to Amazon.
Thanks, specific product links help a ton. Both 303 and Rejex are BRANDS, not products.

Yes - that is what I was saying. 'Thank you' for doing that. It helps a lot. Sometimes people (not you) will be less specific on what product they like, so your link from post #15 was awesome.

I was't trying to get a back slap, I thought you missed it. Some people don't see those hyperlinked bold words very well on their phones.

Understood. All good! I I’ve ordered a bottle. Hopefully if used per directions, it won’t turn my trailer purple as some assert. Haha.

Our awning just tore along the edge exposed to the sun. I will use the half PVC to protect it.

I use 4" drain pipe from home depot, which is thinner than PVC so it is bendable. Comes in 10' lengths. I just did this last week, saw it on YouTube. My trailer has sat in the AZ sun for 5 years and both awnings look fine so far.
