I'm with the Meguire guys. I use their cleaner wax (think its #50) on my 41 ft boat and 39 ft Discovery. That's a lot of feet to clean and wax! The best part (other than the sweet feel it leaves) is that it cleans, removes the black streaks, and helps protect in one step. I also agree with the microfiber towels. Not a big fan of the power polishers as they are heavy, messy, and don't really save much time... Just my opinion...

I do each twice a year... Once in the spring and then again in the fall.

I usually try to spread it out over a couple of nice days or I can't lift my arms the next day! Not too bad if you're playing the tunes, have a little help, and a 12 pack cooler nearby! I have a power polisher and all the attachments... I just find that it's faster with a damp rag and a polishing towel than to climb up and down the ladder with the polisher, keep the extension cord untangled, rinse the foam head every so often, change heads, etc. Meguire's goes on real easy and off easy as well. Like I said, that's what works best for me...

I didn't feel the finish on my RV was bad enough to use Red Max. The fiberglass on
mine was dull because of surface oxidation, but under that it was very glossy. I
was very impressed with Meguiar's Marine/RV products. #49 Oxidation remover took
off the oxide. Then #45 Polish was step 2, followed by Meguiar's Flagship top coat.
Lots of work as your really going over the RV 3 times but restored surface to like new. In some areas that have severe oxidation, do step one a second time. I spread the job out over many days.

I like the cut of your jib.

I'm a proud supporter of all things Meguiar's but I will say Collinite #845 is incredible stuff also. It goes on easy and comes off even easier. Whether by machine or hand it always makes the cars I work on look great.

303 Protectant

The cheapest price that I have found for 303 Protectant is on JMSOnline.net, which is a website primarily for boating. I think is was about $ 43 per gallon.
