What do you wash your RV with?

I was using a product call Mr Clean wash and dry...it has a "special" nozzel, soap and an ion filter (to reduce water spotting). So I found out Proctor & Gamble no longer produces this nor can one find the product in stores. It is available on ebay and amazon, but at a very steep price (cause of short supply or no supply). Soap and filters are like $50/per unit...no way am I going to pay this kind of price.
So I have really like the soap and the "Ion" filter thing. Keeps water spotting down and shines the RV.
An anyone else have a product that does the "Ion" thing and that they like?

I too used Mr Clean until they pulled it. Go to Watersticks.com and look at their De-Ionizer. I've used one for years with good results. I figured out a few tricks to make it last longer. At first my friends said it was too much money but once you see the results etc it's worth it to me an now my friends bought too

Gel-gloss wash and wax cleans good and leaves a shine works for me.

After my Mr. Clean gizmo wore-out , I gave up and installed an outside faucet from my water softener, no more water spotting.

Water. Soft brush. Dish soap.

Dont work so hard. The protective patina will return soon enough.

Baby shampoo, Cammco RV wash n wax with 20-25 squirts of 303 in a 5 gallon bucket. Don't use Dawn, it will strip the wax off.

Only the Blue Beacon has ever washed our RV since 1994. They use a RO water rinse and then a rainex treatment. Great results.

I have used "Blue Choral" from Wal-Mart for several years and it leaves the coach looking like a million dollars. Not only easy to use but lasts a long time...

CorrosionX cleaner then CorrosionX RejeX polymer sealant once a year including on the glass.
Clear coat still shines with no scratches.
Downside is have to be clean before applying the RejeX in the shade as it's not a wax/cleaner.
RejeX makes bug removal simple with water.

I guess that's the real beauty of having an older motorhome eh?
No need for baby shampoo and fluffy kittens when it comes time to wash it.

I've used Maguiars, RainX and ArmorAll Wash & Wax products on my rig. I usually get what's on sale at either Walmart or an auto parts store. They all work very well.

I use the same stuff I use for the cars. Also, that dish soap will take the wax off if you are not careful.

What about this

What about a good quality auto liquid wash/wax product in a bucket of water and then add a little liquid Calgon water softener. Might work.
