Dull finish after waxing

Howdy all !

I've got a 2006 Jayflight 'fiver and just gave her the old wax job before I take her out.. I tried a new wax, Magiuars Carnauba Gold, and while I'm happy how it looks on the sides and rear-end the nose cap (or whatever you want to call it) looks dull and you can see streaks from waxing.. I've buffed it by hand and can't get the finish to shine up.

Any ideas as to what I might be able to spray on and get a glossy shine back ???

Thanks !!!

Not too sure about Magiuars Carnauba Gold (its "gold") formula. Sounds like its made for vehicles and not for RVs. For my TT, I use Magiuars RV/Boat "clearner / Wax" #50. Its available in many RV and boat part stores. With this "cleaner" formula, I get the impressioon it cleans and waxes at the same time. Some waxes tend to "wax" over the dirt. Thus, giving streaks later on.

If only dull looking dull, I'd leave "as is" for 6 months. Then, use Magiuars "cleaner / wax" #50 (for RVs / Boats) in the fall.

Hope this helps...
