Best wax

We recently got a 2005 Monaco Knight...the outside looks great but we want to wash & wax it. Is there a preferred product as far as wax goes?

Take a look at Griot's garage products. Outstanding products. They are available online as well as many automotive supply stores.

Only use a polymer wax. Got this info from the pros that come to your campsite and wash & wax your rig. One of the popular ones is Nu-Finish.

McGuires RV/marine is a good product. I have used them with good results. Currentily I am using Colonite and really like it. It was originally designed for the aircraft industry and is really long lasting.

if you have a painted coach, then any good automotive product will work well. I use meguiers nxt tech wax on my cars after clay barring and have been very happy with the results. If your coach is gel coat, I like collinite boat wax.

Through this forum I was steered to Rejex. www.corrosionx.com It is a paint protector, sealant that leaves a super slick finish and a fantastic shine. It is very durable and lasts longer than wax does. It costs a little more, but it is definitely worth it as waxing one of these beasts is a big chore that I don't care to do any more than I have to. You can read about all it's benefits and how well it lasts on their website. Another great find on this forum!! Randy

I agree Griots Garage products are superb I wouldn't use anything else on my rig or my hot rod. My AMG 55 not the Ford Focus.

Like JohninAZ I prefer Collinite Wax. Reason being when you consider boats are exposed to full sun (ultra-violet rays), salt and various acids and toxins in the water, it stands to reason wax formulated for these exposures has to be relatively tough in comparison to wax designed for autos. Beware Collinite leaves a super slick finish--that matter if you use it on areas where you walk.

I use Mothers, it is called stage 3 now, but I will always use it, I have had amazing results, and it does not turn white on plastics.

A few answers:
-Zaino (All good products)
-Eagle One Nano

These are all good to use. Both Zaino and Eagle One Nano (has another name but it is their Nano version), are very easy to apply and wipe off. No waiting for it to dry, and then wipe off.

On a new to you coach, I'd suggest washing with Dawn, as it will cut the old grime and was finishes. This will allow you to apply whatever product you decide on to a good open clean pore surface. Giving you a good foundation to work from.

I wash my cars and coach yearly with Dawn, then touch up with normal wash/dry and sometimes a Wax As You Dry product.

If the paint is in rough shape, and you really want to get a good baseline. Rent a bugger, and use light compound to buff it out. If not in too bad of shape, you could do this with Zaino's All-In-One combo cleaner and wax, the top off with a Zaino ZCS wipe down. (I use ZCS on the windows too, as it is Rain X on Steroids!).

And yes, I did enjoy the stepping back and eating pop corn post! As everyone's wax or approach is 'the best'!

Good luck with the new rig,
Smitty
