First wax after clear coating my rig

I just waxed my 2002 Winnie Adventurer using NuFinish (the stuff in the orange bottle) applied with a small one hand 6" random orbital polisher/buffer by Vapor. https://www.amazon.com/22606-Random-.../dp/B0052OKKYU

Did the wipe off with just a terrycloth towel. Made it easier than usual. It helped that I added an oil bottle screw-on cap, like you would see on a ketchup squeeze bottle. It was actually somewhat of a joy as it was my first wax job after I wheeled it out less than two years ago, replaced a few decals and clear coated right over the decals, gelcoat and paint. Here is that story: Clear coating my 2002 Adventurer - Winnebago Owners Online Community

I did the Zep wax trick on the roof, cleaning it first with a pressure rotating washer.

And sealed the roof edges here: Resealing my roof edges

I use the orange bottle stuff on both my TV and TT. Easy on and easy wipe off to a nice, long lasting shine.

I use the paste, and it does hold up using car wash soap......Because it's a polymer.....

I have one of those pressure washer attachments and after looking at how well it cleaned my driveway, I would be a little hesitant about using it on the RV roof. I would be afraid it would cut through the membrane.

I would be hesitant to use it on a rubber roof, but mine was fiberglass, big difference.
