Be careful whatever you use not to disturb the edges of the decals. Once an edge is pulled up they can deteriorate.



I just use 303 myself after and soft brush wash with lots of soap and water.

Anything Maguires or anything 3M is definitely what you want.

But, IMHO you don't want a "cleaner wax".

We're not talking about a car subjected to highway salt. Its an RV that will be waxed again before the old wax is gone.

Use Maguires Quik Wax. It's so easy that you'll want to do it again, and after a year it'll still be there. No problem with the decals and did i say its so easy?

I'm not a Turtle wax fan but I found this one very good. Easiest wax job I've ever done.

I used Turtle wax Ice in the past with good results.
But then Mother's came out with CMX, it was marketed as the best thing since sliced bread so I tried that on my truck and Seismic. Well, I was not impressed. It did not hold up very long.
So, being a fan of TW Ice, I bought the Seal and Shine version of Ice. I did my wifes car about 3 months ago, and it is holding up well with at least weekly washes. I clayed my truck and used the Seal and Shine, and wow, it's slicker than a democrat caught in a lie!
I will stick with the TW Seal and Shine for my vehicles from now on because of ease to apply and results. It also works great on rubber and plastic parts.

Can you spray it on and just rinse it off like Mequiars?

Are you tin or fiberglass??

I've been using this once a year exclusively on my 2016 Jay Flight.. My rig doesn't leave my seasonal site, so once a year works for me. Easy to apply/remove.. It also removes stubborn black streaks.

When we bought our 2011 33RLDS new we started using Meguiers Cleaner wax. When we got our 2011 Jayco Bungalow used started using the same. Waxed 2 times per year. Never had any problems with the decals, or anything else. When done with waxing both trailer looked brand new. Could not tell how old they both were.

Another vote for Turtle wax ICE. Spray on and wipe with microfiber cloth. No buffing. Water beads up And rolls off better than old paste wax.

I've used the Turtle Wax Seal & Shine Ice on our seasonal TT. Just spray it on and wipe it off. Works great. I can do the entire 40' TT (with 4 slides) in a few hours. We have 2 large Maple trees on the curbside of our TT that makes a mess of the TT, with the Seal & Shine on, the muck come off with a hose.

It works wonders on cars too. Our daughter bought an 18 year old SUV (her first car) over the summer. After she brought it home, I washed it and used the TW (10 minutes to wax the entire SUV). When she showed my parents her new car a few days later they both thought it was new.

The main thing is to use a wax that won’t harm your decals. ProtectAll is excellent and available at Walmart. I’ve been using it for 5 years and am completely satisfied.

X2 on the Meguiar's spray on wax.


I also used the clay bar on the front nose cap of our 5'r. Removed all the baked on bug leftovers (yes I do wash them off when we get to our destination but that never seems to get everything) and road grime. Surface was smooth as glass. Put on a coat of the spray on wax and it stays protected for 8-12 months.

I agree. If you put two coats on now, and follow up with another coat every 6 months or so, the finish will look new forever. Easy, easy, on and off. I use it on the trailer and all our vehicles.

For older finishes that are oxidized or otherwise dirty, you have to polish them with something else first. The F11 only improves and maintains an existing good surface.
