You may try googling red max pro for campers. I have not done mine yet but plan on it by spring. My brother did his motorhome and it turned out great.
When checking out the sites i saw some that were aluminum and they looked great.
Here is a picture of my brothers m/h it has never been waxed and was looking old for a 06. [ATTACH][/ATTACH][ATTACH][/ATTACH]

I've been using Simple Green for the wash on the entire unit. Nu-Finish liquid wax has been about the least labor intensive wax for the aluminum siding and takes off the black streaks really easy. Easy on and off... works for me

I use Turtle Wax Zip Wax which is actually the wash and PROTECT-ALL for wax since it is also safe for decals. The beauty of the 17Z is the size when it comes to waxing.

Ok I cheated...since my 01' has the "corrugated" aluminum sides (read not easy to wax) I asked my local car wash guys and they ended up waxing my entire trailer and getting the light surface rust marks off of my wheels, all for $150. It was done in one afternoon.

I'm normally a do it myself guy, but $150 was too cheap to say no. They did about half by hand and the other half they had a small orgital that would get in the grooves.

It looks near new again....and they used Meguiars wax too!

So if your in the north central DFW area, go see Tony over at Kwik Car on 3040 and 2499, behind Culvers! :-)

Greg, do they normally do trailers? I can't get my local car washes to do my trailer. $150 is a great deal! I do my trailer myself and I do one side per day so I don't get too worn out.

I live in Dallas. Are you aware of the North Texas Camping Association (NTXCA)? We've been camping with them for 12 years. It's a family friendly camping group that goes to Texas State Parks, COE parks and some Oklahoma parks about once a month. No dues. No pressure. Just nice people. For more info go to:
