    What is the surface for this travel trailer?

    Paint?
    Gelcoat?
    Something else?


    If it's gel-coat you can probably get always with microfiber pads.

    Re: Issues with Flex xc3401vrg

    I don't hear anything wrong.

    No tools are whisper quiet.

    For what it's worth - you're supposed to use the tool with a pad on it and the pad against the paint. Not holding it in the air.
