Washed and waxed

Washed and waxed my 267bhsw today and thought I would pass on my experience. I found a new product on another forum that I am a part of called optimum no rinse wash and wax. I mixed 2 capfuls into 2 gallons of water and used my soft wash mit on one panel at a time, drying and buffing as I went along. Then I topped with 303 aerospace protectant for some UV protection. I normally don't do reviews but my trailer came out pretty amazing and it only
Took 1.5 hrs for the whole job! And NO hoses. I have done trailers before with buckets, brushes and hoses and this was by far the easiest and fastest job I've ever done. I'll try to post a few pics as well.

Your rig looks great! I wish I came across your post back when I owed my Sunline. That trailer was brutal to keep looking good. Nice work.

Dang that looks like it turned out nice!

My only thoughts are the trailer would have to be relatively clean to begin with or this product may not work all that well (seeing how there is no water spraying involved). Correct?

We actually just got back from a weekend of camping and it was pretty grimy we got caught in a good rainstorm driving back and it was an all dirt road campground. The no rinse soap is supposed to be super slippery so it really melts the grime away and the mitt took it off easily and left it clean after. If there was caked in mud maybe spray it off first but this stuff really uses hardly any water and doesn't need to be rinsed. Supposed to buff it after you wipe because it has wax and some sort of UV protectant. A lot of high end car detailers use it on some grimy cars and it does a good job. I'm sold on it

I have a Whitehawk and love 303 for my plastic kayaks but wondered what surfaces on my TT would benefit from 303?

The bottle states that it is ideal to use on plastic,vinyl,gel coat,fiberglass,synthetic and natural rubber, pvc, slide out seals, tires and EPDM roofs. Also it is water based so there are no petroleum distillates that will dry and crack some surfaces such as rubber and plastics and vinyl decals. I would assume the more stuff you spray it on the better haha

I love it because it is a strong UV protectant and makes the finish slick like wax. Less stuff sticks to it like bugs,mud and sap. I spray it on Everything. Body, plastic wheel wells, wheels/tires slides, front rock guard, slide seels, windows. Literally every surface. My tt is aluminum sides but I would spray it on gel coat in a heart beat and feel good about it because of the water based. Working in environmental safety field I don't see how this stuff could harm anything on a trailer.
