RV waxing

what is the best product to wax my 2006 discovery? I have heard about Red max pro # 3 but i don't know if this can be used in full body paint or if its only for fiberglass body, also heard that the Meguiars wax is really good stuff, what are you guys out there doing to keep your RV looking good? Thank you. Joe

Dry Wash N Guard for me, rain and dirt won't stick to it. I even do the windshield and don't need the wipers very often.

Meguiars & an orbital buffer works great for us.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I just did my whole coach with Rejex. Went on and off easy by hand/microfiber , no machine necessary. Drove through a heavy love bug area yesterday and as advertised by Rejex " nothing sticks to it". I did all the windows , and nothing stuck. They wiped off easy. http://www.autogeek.net/rejex-16oz.h...m_campaign=CSE

I've used NuFinish for years but last year found a product by Mothers. It's a synthetic wax called "Mothers Syn" and it really goes on easy and comes off the same. One nice thing is it leaves no white powder after drying.
I don't really know if you want to put RMP 3 on a full body paint job though. I'd really research that first.

Most if not all of us who use rmp3 or mop-n-glo have older units where the finish has faded/aged to the point where regular car wax/finishes won't do the job anymore. I'd stick with a NuFinish/Macquires/Protectall if the paint on your unit is still in good shape.

I have a cabinet full of different wax brands. I've tried Rejex, Meguiars, NuFinish, Blue Corral, Simoniz and others. It really doesn't matter what brand you use, if you wax your coach frequently. Mine gets waxed about 4 times a year. I may do the lower half before one trip and the upper half on the next trip. The nose gets a coat every couple of months. With all that said, I found that the NuFinish was the best bang for the buck. It holds up a little longer, is easy to apply and can be bought anywhere, including WalMart.

I use a six inch hand held buffer to apply. It's easy to hold/control and fits into tight places.

I like the turtle wax ice paste. I like the ice because it does not leave the white residue on the rubber. It also has some lasting power, and easy on and off . I use the paste for the uv protection, I'm not sure if the liquid has the uv protection.
I do use the Nu Finish on my fiberglass roof.

Turtle Wax Ice Clear for me twice a year and RainX on the front during the Love Bug seasons. Works for me

What is your estimate on how many 16oz bottles to do a 45'er and maybe a pickup?
Chuck
I have been using the RV wash/wax from Walmart with about 15 squirts of 303 in the bucket for the pickup and using about the same combination for the coach and it has been ok.

I second the nomination of RejeX. You can get away with using it once a year if your climate isn't too harsh. They also have other products to keep your coach clean and lubed.
