Yes I use it on the front and all sides.

Last year before the start of our Anchorage to Indiana and back trip I wanted to get some kind of protection on Winnie and time was an issue. I've always looked down my nose at spray waxes/polishes because Ö. well they just couldn't be very good or long lasting, could they? But, since time was of the essence, I bought a couple bottles of turtle spay finish. I think it was called "Express".

It went on fast and easy and wiped off fast and easy too with a very light spritz of plain water. Very surprisingly, when we returned to Alaska the wax job was just as good as when it was first applied.

I am now a believer in spray wax!!!

So I went all out and applied two coats of Rejex on the all sides of my 24RKS as well as my tow vehicle. Iím really impressed, I just wash dirt and bugs off with plain water and a soft brush. Iím wondering how long it will last, it spends most of its time under a cover unfortunately. But the truck sits in the elements.

I think it's designed to last about a year, but I've been a bit lazy so my car and truck are entering their 3rd summer since I Rejex'd them and they are still shining and beading water like crazy. I do plan on claybaring and Rejexing them soon though.

I also use Starbrite Marine polish with PTEF! Lasts a year and the bugs just slide off, mostly with water. Almost no scrubbing needed. Has UV inhibitors and keeps the decals looking good as well.

I wash the RV with baby shampoo as it gets it clean but doesn’t remove wax. I then use Lucus Slick Mist for a shine and UV protection. However now that it’s three years old, I’m contemplating a good claying with a clay mitt to remove the water spots on paint and glass. Thank goodness it’s ONLY a 31 footer. Should take a good part of the day.

I use a silicone Aquablade to dry the windows and the sides and get no water spots at all now. Dries the whole thing in about 2 minutes. I dry each section as I finish rinsing so it doesn't have time to spot.

probably others but this one really works well and does a great job on windows too. Super easy!

I also use Lucas Slick Mist, easy on and off and leaves a nice shine. Never heard of the baby shampoo approach but makes sense. Will give it a try.
