So I had a lengthy conversation with my dealer about this topic and he said to be careful with the wax and or polish that is applied to them. His recomendation not using any wax on them that contained petrol distillates.
Good luck finding a wax with out petroleum distillates. It you know of one please share, I thought it was impossible to make a wax without them.

Also, I was too concerned about the graphics. After much debate I went for it. I had my previous TT nearly 3 years, maxed multiple times and no issues with graphics. I think not waxing them and letting the UV get to them will have a much greater affect.

My father has been camping for many years and has always used Mothers Cleaner Wax. 2 coats, one in spring, one in fall. They have gone full time now and in between the mothers he is using Turtle Wax Ice. It is a synthetic wax. He is very pleased. I am thinking that I will follow his steps on mine. It needs to be waxed here very soon.

I'll throw in Meguiars Gold Class....It's a premium Clearcoat Wax I've used for years on my TT and TV and it's approved by 3M for use on vinyl graphics for protection and restoration.

I used this on my last TT and at three years old it still looked brand new
