What a job. I just finished putting on 1/2 can
of Turtle Wax (F21) on 33 feet of fiberglass.

I called Turtle Wax and spoke with one of their
tech folks. They recommended this product because
it will protect the vinyl decals too.

Now to buff and polish......

Just poured myself a glass of red...

I'm tuckered, but as the sun goes down the rig
sure looks good.

now i'm really startin to wonder if good minds think the same ... i have used that combination wash/wax for years on the RV's and it really keeps them looking GREAT. And it really only takes an hour. If i'm feeling a little crazy, i do 2 washes, one with just regular car-wash soap, and then one with that Protectall immediatly after the soap-only wash, and I just spray it on like a fireman (that was a shameless plug for a few of you guys).

I have one of those wand sprayers that siphons from the wash/wax bucket and is connected to my air supply, and it literally is a one-handed job, after the initial soap and scrub is over.

Sometimes I'll spray wax on the RV so thick, that the hairs on my arm become brittle for a week. And remember the one-handed part??? Easy to do.

No gel, no unnecessary work.

Those waxed windows will keep a clear view for your passengers in the 5ver while in a rain storm.

alright ladies, speaking of windows ... whats the last thing the bug sees as he hits your windshield?
(answer to follow)


Good point Howie, and i have to be honest, i am not 100% sure why the wax makes the trailer look so good, and yet it doesn't cloud up the windows, .... but I do know that i try to get as little as possible ON the windows when i'm spraying it.

and Tom, the one time it rained here, i was inside making a sandwich and missed it. darn

(answer: his ehhh, ...backside)

My wife would always remark while riding in my truck in the rain how I didn't need windshield wipers, that the rain just disappeared, slid off the windshield. Finally told her, just spray the windshield with wax at the car wash every time you wash it, works like a charm.

There we have it ... some kind of proof.

I'm tellin' you though, those wand sprayers that connect to an air compressor, are $15.
Shove the business end in a bucket that contains a high quantity of waxy stuff, and you are now a waxing monkey, without ever breaking a sweat.

Yeah, as he's being swallowed by it!
You ain't experienced bugs on the windshield until you've driven through a cloud of "Midges" around Klamath Lake. Billions and billions of them.
