Amazing what the right products and lots and lots of elbow grease can do.  It looks really good.

Great Job

Trailer looks fantastic Deb!

I've heard about this product McKanica 0351 Silicone Caulk Remover Gel, 8 oz Cartridge for removing silicone caulk, but have not tried it yet.

Don't bother. Luckily it's cheap. Tried it first and it did nothing at all. Literally nothing ;-(

I purchased Meguiars

I purchased Meguiars Fiberglass polish and a buffer from Griots Garage. Made the Scamp look brand new.

Looks very nice!  What did

Looks very nice!  What did you use for the new caulk sealant, and how did you apply it? 

I keep wishing there were a preformed (V-shaped) caulk.

I don’t recall the brand.

I don’t recall the brand. Standard outdoor rated acrylic sealer from Home Depot 

Thank you

i used painters tape along the belly band and then just above it. Applied, smoothed and removed the tape. Makes a nice straight tight line.
