Do you use a Windshield Water treatment for Motorhome?

A few years ago, there was a product out there like a wax you put on your windshield and it would wick the water away better than using wiper blades. We seen it at a RV / Sports show.

Do any of you use such a product on your windshield? Have recommendations? I think in the stores the only product I have seen is the RainX but if there is something better or lasts longer I am for anything that would aid for best visibility driving the coach in rain. Thanks James

I use Dry Wash N Guard. Water just beads up and blows off if driving. When parked if just runs off by gravity. DWG is the forerunner of all the new stuff out there. Don't even get water spots on the glass when using it. I do the rig (or try to) twice a year although it usually lasts all year.

The original product is called "Rainex" I have used it since the 60s. Keeps bathroom mirrors from fogging also.

You can buy windshield washer fluid with Rainex mixed in already. Works real good.

I have also used Rejex on the windshield. It goes on easier than RainX and works just as well.

Years ago there was a product called Glasswax that I used. Now I've used Rainex, and even just plain old car wax. I use the wax on my chrome wheels too after I polish & buff them.

I use Synthetic Spray Wax on all my windows inside and out for years. I find it does a much better job of repelling water and cuts the inside film that builds up from heat, etc.

I use Rain-X too. I also carry a small bottle with me in every vehicle I own. It works well if you ever have a situation where the wipers quit. They never seem to bother unless it is raining!

I've used rejex and rainex and both work well to make water runoff instead of bead. I've run into problems combining either of those with washer fluid with bug remover in it. The bugs end up as a cloudy film on the windshield worse than when I didn't treat the windshield. Going to try this year using regular windshield wash and see if that works better.
