I use a microfiber towel, and rainex car wash soap, and wash her by hand after every long trip.

"Most" waxes are "cleaner wax" and contain a light abrasive.
I use Meguirs gold, it is a pure wax with no abrasive, I use it on my Camaro as well.

I WISH I had indoor storage, as that is really the only answer.

We use RejeX on our coach 2X a year and most of the dirt and bugs can be washed off with a normal garden hose with a spray nozzle attached.

RejeX

I know it says to apply RejeX on a cool day in the shade but if you do a small area at a time and do not allow it to dry (bake on) too much it still does a good job.

I use Mr. Clean Car Wash with their soap and de ionized filter. Its quick and easy and will drip dry without spotting. I can do my 34 footer in 45 minutes.

The thing that strikes Me when I see an Older but Sterile Looking RV or Boat is that the Owners Never got to enjoy the thing! I don't want mine to look like an old Ugly Beater either but I enjoy every minute that I get to use it. so i'm not all that anal about a few Marks or sratches.

Its funny to see this today. I'm sitting here....a little soar, after washing the coach including the roof. When I was done, I waxed the entire coach. My coach is parked outside, but gets washed before every trip (at least 12 times a year) and the entire coach is waxed at least 3-4 times a year. I wax the nose and carefully clean and wax the 3M mask at least 7-8 times a year. Nothing ever sticks to my 3M mask. My coach shines like new after 6 years. Keeping the rims polished like chrome also helps to make it look good.

I was told by my neighbor who has a class a that because I have a specel 5 year coating that a cover could actually be a bad idea.

Mine is 7+ years old and the full body paint still looks like new. It's not, of course, cause the sun has altered the colors a bit (I can tell when i use touch-up paint), but it still looks showroom new. Mine is stored outside in winter but gets used at least 7 months a year. I wash it regularly (yes, with an RV brush) and wax it a couple times a year with Protect-All, which is very easy to use. Size is not a real issue - I just take my time. It doesn't have to be done in a day.

No brushes (saw what it did to a friends class a identical to ours). I bought a pole and microfiber pad set from Wash Wax ALL by Aero Cosmetics (www.washwax.com). The pole is the best tool I have found in a long time! I use Protect ALL wash/wax soap and use microfiber towels for the tight spots that can't be done well with the pole. I wash after every trip. I wax the entire coach twice a year with Mequires with touch up using Final Detail when I think it doesn't look pretty. I wax the front cap after every trip. My coach has no steaks, brush marks and the paint is holding up great.
