Thanks for being so patient...

First and foremost, congrats on the new Thor! Those are very nice.

I would recommend our New RV Owner's Care Kit and our Wash & Wax In a Bucket Kit.

Both kits contain the essentials for cleaning, protecting and maintaining your new Thor.






This brush has also been very popular for washing the RV: Heavy-Duty Acrylic Wash Mop with Flow-Thru Handle




Let me know if you have any further questions.

Just a testimonial. Yesterday I washed our 13 yr. old 35 ft. Class A , using McKees "wash-n'-wax" and their roll around bucket on caster wheels. It was kinda hot here in Southwest Fl, and I was glad that I didn't have to tote the 5 gal. bucket around. And there is a good shine on the old gal after I got finished.

I have a bottle of the detail wax that I have been holding off on trying, until I got an answer to a question which I had posed to the customer information section of the McKees website. I have some graphics on which I was interested in trying the vinyl graphics restorer product. I had asked if since I had waxed over the top of the graphics with previous coats of wax over the last several years, if I needed to attempt to strip the wax coats with a detergent, or whether the vinyl graphic restorer product could be applied to the graphics as is, and if after using the restorer product, you should wax over the top of it.

Unfortunately I am not at all impressed with the restorer. I have tried in excess of three coats on my vinyl graphics and at best I can see a minimal difference if I look at it from about a 45 angle. I have done just a portion of the graphic to see if, after a couple of days there was any noticeable difference. While it may be a good product for some it was a lost effort on my part. I cannot recommend it.

I don't want to step in for the sponsor, but here is a very short description of what a clay bar does. If you google clay bar, you'll find many hits and even videos on how to do it.

I have been into serious auto detailing and doing car shows for almost 20 years, and while I am a "bit obsessive" on my RV paint, I can not reasonably maintain it like I do my cars. I don't clay bar my cars unless I am going to polish them as well (not wax, polish then wax). When I did my first full exterior detail of my new coach, I did not clay bar it; clay barring an entire coach would take the better part of a full day, followed by several days to polish and wax it; it took me about 25 hours just to polish and wax (not including washing it) my coach over multiple days. Clay baring is not hard, just messy. If you are not into serious detailing, and already have very good paint, I don't see clay baring an RV as something that would be practical........

And edited excerpt from a detailing site:

Regardless of how clean you think your paint is, contaminants are still stuck on the paint. Many enthusiasts don't realize polishing is for defect removal, Clay is for the removal of the roughness you can feel with your fingertips. After claying the surface should be evaluated for defects to determine if the next step is polishing or waxing. It is a pliable bar and its sticky nature enables the clay to pick up and hold onto contaminants as it glides across the surface. A lubricant like detailing spray is recommended to ensure clay slides smoothly. As the bar gets dirty, just knead it a bit and flatten it out into another fresh patty.
