What are you cleaning you Hybrid with?

I see that after the trip this weekend my camper is looking a little grey.
I wonder what you guys use to clean the outside of the trailer.
I was going to use my car soap, but I figure I'd see what the others are doing.
I need to get those grey streaks off.

We just wipe down with a damp warm rag on dirty spots, No soap unless it's a stubborn mark, never soaking wet and I would not use a hose of any kind. You could get water inside very easily with a hose.

I used RV wash and wax after every trip. I also used a power washer with no issues. I just sold the 19H after 7 years.
The people who bought thought it was much newer than 7 years. Any RV supply or dealer sells a brand of RV wash and wax.

I use either Adams Car Wash or Thetfords RV wash and wax. I do use a hose and have never had water get inside of the trailer. For the bunkends I use Protectal, except on the Sunbrella.

I just got the Adams wash and wax last week. Have not used it yet....do you like it????
I used the Thetford brand several times and thought it was pretty good especially the shine
I got afterwards. The dealer I get my chemicals from ran out of the Thetford an had the Adams
And some other cheaper off brand....took the Adams.

I use whatever car wash is on sale when I buy it. Whatever is good for my car is good for my RV. I also use a pressure washer from time to time, as well as a wash broom. When using the sprayer I set the nozzle on "gentle" and stand back. No water inside the RV ever.

I have a telescoping carwash bush that hooks up to the garden hose. I typically use McGuire’s carwash for general cleaning. However when I have stubborn streaks and bugs, I use Crown (brand) Spray Power. . I buy it at Menards for $6.50 a gallon.

I like Totally Awsome to take off the black streaks and grime, and what ever car wash soap I am using at the time. I like Mothers, with wax. The TA comes from the Dollar Tree and is the only thing I have found that takes of the black streaks, and does not damage anything.

I did not know that Adams made a wash and wax. I will have to look into that. I do like their car wash and their whole line of products. Have you ever used their "Revive Polish"? It is a very nice paint cleaner to prep the surface for a wax job. Adams Quick Sealant used immediately after the Revive seals the paint. Final step is to use Adams Buttery Wax or Americana Wax (expensive but very good).
