Liquid wax with UV protection

What is a good liquid wax for MH that has UV PROTECTION.
I have fiberglass sides.

I do use 303 aerospace protectant on the decals. Some
people use 303 on the rest of the MH also. How does
that work?

How about protect-all?

Paste wax is just to hard to use with my 69 yr.old arms.

Protect All is good stuff, it can be used on anything...fiberglass, glass, chrome, rubber, plastic, etc. I used it on my 5th wheel which was all fiberglass. However, I don't think it is 'heavy duty' enough to use as a regular wax or polish that you want to last for a while. Just did the MH and used Nu Finish, the same stuff I use on the other vehicles.

I use Meguires on my coach which I do twice a year in the fall and spring. However twice a year is probably overkill. 303 is good and I use it on tires, front of the coach, and a/c shrouds but in my book it is expensive and most of all, it smears and leaves swirls if not wiped off really well.

YUP - too hard on my 75 y.o. frame as well...

SOOOoooo - after applying 2 coats of Meguiars Gold Class paste wax, I decided something less strenuous was needed...

I bought some Meguiars bottles of liquid Cleaner/polish, and MAN, what a difference! FAR easier to apply, then remove - and the shine was head and shoulders better than their paste stuff. In fact, after a few weeks, it LOOKS to be getting even better - and this is on a '88 Winnie Super Chief - imagine what it would do for a newer, un-oxidized rig!

Dunno about the UV protection, none claimed on the bottle - but boy, what an easy application, removal, and SHINE!

I used Meguiars RV #51 One step cleaner/Wax and LOVE the finish it left. The coach was slightly oxidized and that took care of the problem and left a nice coat of wax on for protection. I will probably just use regular Meguiars No. 56 or No 63 next time around.....Meguiars has the best products out there as far as I am concerned. I have been using them for the past 25 years and have never been disappointed.

I think most would agree that no matter what wax you use it won't last. I use 'The Solution'. It sprays on and wipes off. Very easy and quick. No problem being applied in direct sun. I've tried every wax known to man and decided easiest is best. Also doesn't leave wax buildup in cracks and crannies.

303 on everything else but hard to wipe off if used on the motor home body.

Agree on the not lasting part. I have been using Nu-Finish Cinch spray for the past year or so. Goes on and wipes off easily, doesn't costst an arm and a leg. It probably last as long as any other touch up spray.

We have full body paint and I use Protect-All for most everything. It lasts 4-6 months and I find it hard to complain about that in a product that takes so little effort to use.

I used it on previous unpainted coaches as well.

Thanks for the imput. If I had the big bucks,
(and I don't) I would have someone else clean
the roof and wax down to the cargo doors.

I'm only 5' 7". The lower part is easy.

Another vote for Protect All. Easy to use and you don't have to do the whole coach all at once. I wipe off the coach with a wet micro fiber and then apply some Protect All. Or just use the wet micro fiber and then buff. Don't have to worry to much about washing or water restrictions at parks and campgrounds.

Another for Protect All. I have only been using it this year, but my father has been using it longer, his 10 year old Jeep Liberty still gets compliments. He is a FT and re-applies every 3 months. I had regular wax I did my box trailer with after doing my 36 TH, did TV with Protect All after that. I would like it to last longer but over all I think it resquires less sweet equity.

Not sure about UV protection, but look at Red Max Pro # 3

Red Max Pro Prep

poli glow follow ups

I spread it over 2 weekends for my 34' Adventurer and couldn't believe the change. Applying 4 coats of RMP was easier than doing half the coach with wax for these 70 yr old arms. After 3 months, looks as good as day I did it and haven't had to wash it yet, dirt just rinses off in the rain & so far only 1 black streak starting to show.
