Smile RV Wash products

Just wondering what products you are happy with for washing the side of your RV? In this case, a fiberglass Jayco 5th Wheel.

What products are you happy with for cleaning/maintaining the rubber roof?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

This is what I use.... Kleen-flo by Armashell. Golden Wax Wash Powder. Works great and the 3.6 kg. lasts a long time.

2008 Winnebago Adventurer 38J, W24, GP, dozens of small thirsty ponies. Retired after 40 years wrenching on trucks! 2010 Ford Ranger toad with GSXR 1100T or KLR650 in the back. Easy to spot an RVer, they always walk around with a screwdriver or wrench in one hand!

Blue Coral at Walmart - the wash products are all very much the same.

Check your owner's manual for the roof. I use 303 Aerospace Protectorant.

Iv been using Waterless products for years and recently came across this one that mixes 16:1 with water. 90% of my washes on my coach, toad and Tbird are with this product.

I use Murphy Oil on my roof....Bounder 35K.....Everyone I have talked to since buying have said that Murphy Oil is FINE to use, I just make sure I rinse the sides, back and front down well when doing so.

Been using what Tiffin recommends and thats baby shampoo and vinegar in water. Was just reading a review about wash products for boats and it said that you should use soap that has a Ph at or near 7 as lower attacks the gelcoat and or paint finish. Dawn dish soap has a Ph of 5. Rv has a similar finish so something to think about.

I use Turtlewax car wash liquid on my cars and motor home. Can't help you on the roof, mine is fiberglass.

We also use Wash Wax All by Aero Cosmetics. A great product. We've used it on our 5th wheel since it was new, and after 5 years it still looks new. Easy to use, no ladders needed. We also use Murphy's Oil Soap on the roof.

Turtle Wax Ice car wash, and Protect-all for the coach. Murphy's oil on a rubber roof which is what the manufacturer of the roof of my first coach said to use. I use Blue Coral or Murphy's oil on my fiberglass roof.
