Hi R F S,
Consider going to Car Care Products, Detailing Supplies, Auto Accessories - Griot's Garage 800-345-5789 I purchase all my car/coach care (exterior and interior) from this company.

For the exterior go to Car Care Products, Detailing Supplies, Auto Accessories - Griot's Garage 800-345-5789 for Speed Shine. To be used when the coach is dry.

There is also Car Care Products, Detailing Supplies, Auto Accessories - Griot's Garage 800-345-5789 Spray On Wax. To be used when the coach is wet.

There are many other products on this site. These are high end products used by those owning show vehicles. I've used these products for many years.

I used McGuire's(sp) Next Generation wax easy on easy off. It really dosen't show but it had heavily oxidation and alot of black mold junk that I got off with the pressure washer and some house cleaner from Home Depot. Then the wax
I just put another coat on last week and it really shines. I use it on my 64 deville convert also.

I purchased my 2005 tiffin last year and use a product by CAMCO sold at Walmart. I wash my Rv after every trip and it shines brighter all the time even in outside storage. They also make a black stain remover that works well. After a couple of washes I find the bugs just wash off without scrubbing. Low cost and effective. No rubbing required.

I use Dry Wash N Guard. I do the rig once a year although last year I didn't do it at all due to the wife's illness and no time.
Even use it on the windows and water just beads up and runs off. In light rain I don't even need the wipers on.
We joined a local GS chapter, they thought the rig was brand new and at that time it was 8 years old.

The guy that waxed my rig about 18 months ago used Maguires.
Since then, it has mostly acquired a value-adding layer of patina.
But, when washed, it shines.
Building more patina....

I use Protect All. Easy to apply and good protection. Not a polish for an oxidized surface, but great for surface protection. As long as you keep the coach in decent condition, Protect-All will keep it shining.

I have been using gel gloss 2 times a year and then a spray on detailed after washing for water spots. Looks like new.

This is if your finish is good.
