If you hate waxing your trailer then you would really hate to wax our 33rlds and the Jayco Bungalow we have.

I use Nu Finish. http://www.nufinish.com/ It's really easy on and off and seems to work well. You can put it on in full sun too because I could never get all of mine in the shade it seems. Use some Awesome from the dollar store for the Black streaks and I use regular car wqash stuff from turtle wax to wash.

I hate waxing the trailer also. For a quick job I use Thunderbolt water less wash/wax.

I hate it too but it's something that needs to be done.
As a side note, DO NOT use "Awesome" from the dollar store to clean the exterior or you will find yourself having to wax a lot more often. It will clean the black streaks, right along with anything else, including wax, that might be on the camper... Ask me how I know...... :0

You're right, I only use it before I wax anyway and we have aluminum on ours so that might make a difference. Also I water it down, but I have used it for years with no problems like this.

The Turtle Wax Ice is what my dealer recommended and will not harm the graphics over time.
I use Turtle Wax Zip Wax carwash then use the Ice when I want to throw some wax on it.

I used a combo wash/wax solution that's for RVs (maybe by Thetford?)

It kept my 2008 19H looking nice and white.

I also hate waxing and have no desire to start with my new 28DSBH!
