Best wax for fiberglass and decals

Ok so I know a lot has been written about this but problem is deciphering which wax waxes can be used for both the decals and the fiberglass I don't want the decals to dry out. Thanks for being patient and answering my question.

I use Meguiar's Cleaner Wax. It works very well on the fiberglass sides and decals. Bought mine at Walmart.

I just did mine with Meguiar's ULTIMATE WAX. It is technically not wax, but a poly sealant. I love the stuff , Nash factory tech guy said it was ok to use on the Nash fiberglass sides. Easy on, easy off, usually lasts at least six months. Meguiar's actually makes a boat/ fiberglass wax if you have the time to mailorder or can find it locally. It's reported to be excellent.

For the decals, hands down 303 aerospace. Some use it for the fiberglass as well.

FWW I just read my siding manufactures care guide, it says NO abrasives, which the "cleaner " wax is , albeit a mild one.

Just because it says "cleaner" on the bottle does not mean it has an abrasive in it anymore than Dawn Dishwashing Liquid does. On the front of the bottle it says Clear Coat Safe. It does not scratch at all. If you are afraid of it then by all means don't use it. Meguiar's has a great reputation in polishes and waxes.

Here is a great product (I have no affilation) for an easy on and off. This is the company website but you can find it much cheaper online. http://www.fastwax.com/1-pk-fw1-fastwax-w-free-towels/
Forget the free towels. Just sharing something that works and it goes on and comes off easy. Cleans decals safely too. What is best is for you to decide. Good luck

According to Mequiar's online, it's cleaner wax has "diminishing abrasives" in it. I would think Gelcoated fiberglass and basecoat /clearcoat paint on sheetmetal are two different animals.

Rejex. It's a sealer and not a wax. Lives up to it's motto of nothing sticks but the shine. One application can last a year depending on your climate. After the first application it will take less and apply easier.

RejeX: Nothing Sticks but the Shine!

We apply it in the spring and summer and apply a fresh coating to the front of the coach before each trip. Apply and remove excess by hand.

If you find a way to keep the vinyl decals from drying out and peeling on a coach that is stored outside let me know.

How do you apply #50? Need the power buffer out for application?
