Does it have a clear coat? If so, how did it oxidize?

Maybe oxidize isn't quite the word im looking for. But I don't believe it was ever waxed. Whatever was on it came off. I honestly thought it looked good when we brought it home. But now it looks absolutely amazing.

I use Ultimate on my MH and love it. I have always been a Meguiars fan.

FYI, ClearCoat is not immune to oxidation

I've been using Meguiars Flagships and pleased with the results. Very easy to buff on and off. Do you feel the Ultimate is a step up? Txs

The Meguires Ultimate is too greasy and leaves a greasy film and it don't last. Also hard to buff out. The High Tec yellow Carnuba is the easiest and in my opinion the best.

My Son uses something called Insulators Wax and swears by it. He brought his truck to my house and it's sat out all year and it still beads on the sides. It's white.

Im not sure if its a step up from others but its a step up from other meguiars wax that I have been using. I did not notice a greasy film. I also know from previous experience that any wax is hard to buff off if you do not prep it correctly. That is just my opinion. This why I always use the cleaner wax 1st. This removes any impurities on the paint. More impurities you have the harder the wax is to buff off. Like I said though,this is just my opinion and things I have learned over the past years.

Does anyone know if Meguiar's Ultimate is OK to use over decals?

I sent an inquiry to Meguiar's last November asking if they had any product that was recommended to use over decals. Here's their reply:


"Unfortunately I don't have a single wax that I can recommend for use on decals. All of the waxes will leave a film on the decals and potentially even turn the area white and discolor it. You can use the waxes on your fiberglass , but we will always recommend that you avoid the decals so you do not get a film on them.

On of the best long lasting waxes that we offer for Boats and RV's is our flagship premium Marine wax."


They don't mentiion Meguiar's Ultimate. Is this a new product?

The ultimate wax is new. I called and asked what wax they recommend. I told them it was a body paint / clear coat. They quickly referred to the ultimate wax. They told this would be the best wax for my application. It is suppose to be one of the best waxes for uv protection. They told me I could use it over the decals as it would give them uv protection as well. My 1st though for wax was the premium boat and rv wax that meguiars makes. They told that was made primarily for gel coat.

I use Meguiars Car Wash and Wax for routine MH and car washes. Since normally I do not dry the MH, I have found I get far less water spotting than when using other brands.

Protect All is good to use on decals...or anything else...glass, fiberglass, rubber, chrome, etc.
