the side of my motor home from the clear coat coming off
Lots and lots of sanding and elbow grease! You may be able to sand the gel coat and prime it and then sand some more until smooth. I assume that you are getting ready to re-paint your Travco?
Just fyi... the original gel coat was actually not applied on but is original to the fiberglass production process. The color is "in" the fiberglass.
Any progress since last summer?
