Best RV wax/polish?

I'm just looking for opinions on what the best product is to wax/polish an RV finish. Also, do you guys use an electric buffing tool, or do it by hand?

Thanks!

Ever since I have owner motorhomes I had always used the ProtectAll brand of products and thought everything was dandy. They do perform well. They were inexpensive and always just there at every RV supply store.

Recently, on a whim, I purchased a Meguiar's M4965 Marine/RV Fiberglass Restoration System, (on Amazon). Wow, what a difference!

I am switching my allegiance over to Meguire's products.

If I need to use a power tool I will hire someone to do it. I have been using WashWaxAll Aircraft RV Cleaner Waterless Wash Wax Detailing Products Supplies and am very happy with the results and it is not very hard to use.

I have beer using Turtle Ice spray wax. Goes on easy and lasts for quite a while.

My $ 0.02
Meguiars Cleaner Wax Paste.
Yes, it takes a lot of work to put it on and take it off,
but, it works great, looks great, and lasts all year.

Odd that you should post this now. I just did mine (one side of it anyway) this weekend. After my last trip (about 3 weeks ago) we came through a little rain. When we got home there were spots all down the passenger side that looked like coffee stains. I assume that it came from inside the awning cover. I had one heck of a time getting that off, it seemed like it was embedded in the surface or at least the wax.

I have two 6" orbital waxers. I used one with a mixture of polishing compound and simple green. Buffed it with a terrycloth bonnet. That really brought up the shine on the fiberglass. Then I put on a coat of wax, took it down with a terrycloth towel, and then buffed it with a microfiber bonnet. Looks better than new

The polishing compound was too hard to use until I mixed it with simple green. Hope this helps.

Redraider,I just noticed that you have a 2015. I don't think that you need the polishing compound yet, but for those of us who have older units, this method works well.

I buy a can of Maguire's Cleaner and Wax, and a can of Maguire's Carnauba Wax, and mix the 2 cans together. I use a 6" orbital buffer to apply, and by hand where the buffer won't fit, and use a 12" orbital buffer to remove and a towel where it won't reach. I used this combo last August and the water still beads up on the side of the MH.

I have used a lot of waxes over the years and am always looking for high performance and easy application products. This year I found Mequiars NXT. This stuff goes on easy and sparingly and comes off with very little effort. No sweat to do our 45ft rig. Its a liquid wax. Its kind of spendy but I would pay twice over since it saves me so much time. Give it a try. No buffer needed.

Wash and Wax All

I also use Wash and Wax All. It does a great job and it is very easy to put on. No buffers are needed and you do not need to use water.

X2 and after repeated uses, it seems to be easier to keep up and maintain a very shiny vehicle.

Went to a seminar at the Winnebago GNR a couple years ago and the engineer giving the seminar recommended Rejex. Not a wax but made for clear coat paint, Somewhat hard to remove but does a nice job.

Tried Groits "One Step sealant" and very pleased. Requires a buffer for application but goes on quickly and is much easier to buff out than wax. So far the once a year application looks possible.
