Proctive wax from Dealers

Are these proactive waxes worth the money? The product is called ResistAll. I am getting a 2015 x18d and offered a wax coating that protects from sides of the trailer from tree sap and other stuff. Is this worth getting?

It might be for $300 or less. But they will likely quote you $1k for it.

Hmmm. Sounds like a major moneymaker for the dealer with little or no benefit to the owner. Wax applied at home on a regular basis will protect your TT from bug splatter, tree sap, etc.. Don't waste your $$.

When it comes to vehicles, furniture, and campers most any dealer applied coating is a money maker for the dealer.

Go to harbor freight buy a power polisher $30.00 some foam pads $6.00 and a good automotive wax $10.00. Now put the rest of the money the dealer would have charged you into your camping fund..
