Question Decals - polishing and waxing

Probably should have asked this before I started polishing my RV, but here goes anyway. When polishing is it best to stay away from the decals? I am using Meguiar's Ultimate Compound. Also, now that I am ready to wax, should I avoid the decals or is there wax which can be applied on the decals?

Decals like wax, too. Don't pay any attention to them, assuming that you are waxing the unit and not wheeling out with abrasive rubbing compound.

As I've heard, it's not a good idea to wax your decals. The wax hardens the material and it begins to crack. Just what I've heard someone else may be along with some info.

Not waxing is a personal choice, I suppose, and if it makes sense to you, that's all the reason you need.

Who's ever seen a cracked decal that wasn't on an old, beat up unit to begin with? Faded maybe, but not cracked.

I wouldn't use Meguiar's Ultimate Compound on the decal. As said, waxing them your choice. I only use 303 Protectant on mine.
