OK Guys, I am about ready to purchase my new rig on Saturday. The salesman is trying to sell me a product called ResistAll. The literature tells me: " ResistALL exterior is a Teflon based polymer that protects the exterior against fading, oxidation, yellowing of the fiberglass or chalking of the paint on aluminum skin models. ResistALL bonds and seals the surface creating a durable protective finish. Application of ResistALL also eliminates the need to wax your RV at all for the next 5 years. Without application the manufacturer will recommend a full wax job 3 times a year in the north and 1 additional wax application if you are a full timer. ResistALL will not wear off or melt at 120 degrees like wax does. The protections listed above are all come with a 5 year warranty."

I have to make a decision on this tonight, as the salesman is going to include this in the financing. The cost is approximately $1500. Does anyone know about this product? Is it worth getting? Any feedback greatly appreciated.

JMHO..."Snake Oil"

Save the $1500 and buy some nice things for your RV. Waxing them is not that big of a deal to me...kind of my therapy!

Best Wishes!

^^^Yup, agree 100%. All these are no better than a high quality polymer wax. I'll even bet the literature (or warranty fine print) says somthing like: To maintain the warranty and protection of this fine product, we recommed reapplying our special once-a-year "maintainer" coat. Or something to that effect.

Truth told, they are not taking any risks by making the statements they do. Within 5 years most good paint jobs will not do any of the things they say their product protects you from.

I will wax your RV three times in the first year for $1500.00. Whata ya say? By the way... you could probaly buy a metal carport for $1500 and store your RV covered. Would be much better than the snake oil.

Costs the dealer around $50.00 to apply this. Car dealers make HUGE profits off this junk also. Some 18 yr old kid sprays it on in the back of the shop..done deal. The "warranty" will be pro-rated so if you aren't happy with it..you might get part of your money back. Forget about it. I would have a hard time buying anything from a dealer that pushes this kind of junk...

The joy of washing and waxing your own is you find all the places where the seals are starting to fail and you fix them.

If you are not able to do that yourself find yourself a good RV detailer that will keep up your rig and maintain the seals properly.
