While camping last week a neighbor camper I was talking with noticed the bugs we collected on our thousand mile trip home from our dealer and said he applies baby oil to the front of the unti after washing it. It collects dust but dirt and bugs slide right off. Sounds right and I think it's worth a try.

Will help keep the bugs off and you'll add a pleasant scent to every neighborhood you drive through.

Has anyone used Rain-X wash and Carnuba wax on their aluminum siding? If Rain-X works well on windows, I'm wondering how it will do on the exterior of our tt ?

Carnuba is great on my truck and cars but don't like reapplying every 3 weeks, on the camper I use Meguiar's tech wax only apply twice a year and bugs slide off the front.

I just waxed my Starcraft 175RK (Jayco 17C twin) with this Meguiars product: http://www.meguiarsdirect.com/detail/MEG+FLAG+16. I used a Porter Cable Orbital Polisher with a black foam pad to apply the wax and then removed it by hand. It came out very shiny and smooth. The large flat surfaces of the trailer are ideal for using a power polisher. The various colors of foam pads have different cutting/polishing properties. I usually use a green or blue pad for polishing/cleaning and then follow up with a black pad for the glaze or wax when taking care of my cars. I purchased the polisher, pads and some of my polishes and wax from detailers domain.com. If you get on their email list they periodically send out discount codes.
