On the Newmar site are instructions for their units. Nothing but a cloth (NO brushes) and baby soap.

Just a comment about brushes...

When I was on the Memphis Fire Dept, many years ago, we got a new fleet of about 50 new shiny red, E-One, pumpers and trucks, they issued new fancy brushes on long poles, for us to use. Within one week, the order was to discontinue the use of the brushes because it was damaging the finish. How? Well, it is true that the tips of the bristles were very soft and that was a good thing. However, they found that when you use a brush, the bristles lay down and the long sides of the bristles were scratching the finish. (Think of painting with a paintbrush and not using the tip of the brush, but the sides)
It was true, many brand new paint jobs ruined!
Since then, no brushes for me.
I use a microfiber type, round mop-head thingy, and keep it very clean. That is for painted surfaces. I have another that I use for skirt down( which is where most of the road grime is) and another for wheels.
With an all black and chrome coach, I'm very particular about things that leave scratches, swirls, or any other harmful applications.
I have in fact found that you can't use too much soap, and rinse whatever you wash with, frequently.
My two cents,
Jus sayin

If you are looking for a wax that is good for at least a year...try Collinite
No. 845, Insulator Wax for Automotive, Marine, RV, Aeronautical and Industrial use. Clear coat safe. The only place I know that it can be purchased is Advance Auto for about $18.00. The problem is most of them do not stock it and they have it delivered to their store overnight. One bottle will do all four sides of a 43' Class A at least twice with some left over. Be very careful and only do small areas at a time and wipe off the glaze. If you let the glaze sit it will take an arm and a leg to get it off....no pun intended.

If you have a fiberglas roof and you have white runoff streaks or just want to protect it, use this same product but don't rub off. It took almost two bottles for the fiberglas roof...it seems to suck it up.

This is a great product originally recommended to me by a professional high end car detailer and i have been using it on my RV and new cars for at least three years with great results.

I was told it was original designed to keep high tension wire from arcing and to make the interior of conduit super slippery to pull wires through.

This is the longest lasting wax you will find. And in reality who really likes waxing their RV!!

I had the Mr. Clean setup also, worked great and we have very hard water here. I just bought a deionizer from Costco and will start using that. With the dark brown MH and our very hard water, if you don't use deionized water for the final rinse, you end up with white spots everywhere.
As far as what I wash with, Newmar recommends a lambs wool pad followed by a foam squeegee. Seems to work fine.

Eagle-1 Nano Wash & Wax and a very soft brush. I know how to use a brush properly without scratching. I bet that "Blue Choral" sounds good.
