washing & waxing fiberglass TT

Hi all...recently we bought a 2001 Jayco Kiwi 21C and love it, what a differrence from our old popup (we loved that too). As I get more involved with this one I would like to know what others recommend to use to wash and wax the outside? Also, is recommended to wax by hand or use a buffer wheel? Thanks in advance

Rich

Buffers can be deadly to your finish. Stick with hand waxing for the best results. Being the year if it's chalky then you might need to cut it with wheel first then maintain with the hand waxing. Watch around decals as they will heat up and come off. I use Nu Finish with great results. A good car wash is all I use to maintain it with washing. Roof's are Spic and Span.

Congrats and welcome.

Thanks for the advice as I was wondering about care of the gel coat as well!
