303 or Washwaxall on non-gel fiberglass?

Lots of info on both. 303 only advertises for gelcoat. Anyone use 303 on non gel coat fiberglass?

Washwaxall looks like a good product as well. I am looking at something to apply after washing at a truck wash or my home. I

I use Wash Wax All on my Cedar Creek and both of my vehicles. One nice feature of Wash WALL All is you do not have to wash the vehicles (trailer and truck/car) if they are not extremely dirty. You apply a little of the product to the wet mop head and apply to the vehicle area you are cleaning. You than turn the mop head over to the dry side and wipe off. I can usually do my entire trailer with just changing out the wet mop head once. Follow the directions that are provide in the kit and your unit will sparkle with a super shine. I usually do the trailer twice a year and the front of the nose cap once or twice in between. Since the nose cap is a large bug killer this needs to be cleaned more often.


I am planning on taking this product with us this winter when we travel south and clean the camper at the RV site we have reserved.

Non-gel surfaces are typically painted or clear-coated, so a product like 303 probably isn't going to do much anyway.

Can you give an example of the type of surface you are asking about?

We have used Wash Wax All exclusively since we bought our current 5'r in Nov 2011. It's a great product, easy to use and has UV protectant. We are fulltime so it is always outside, no oxidation, looks like new. We use 303 on the plastic parts like frig vent and used it on the graphics on our previous 5'r.

303 was originally developed as a protectant for rubber and vinyl, and is probably the best stuff out there for those applications.
Won't really do anything to protect paint, clearcoat or gelcoat.
But, it's great to use on your vinyl graphics, decals, ect., and of course tires, weatherstripping and slide seals.
