Waterless Wash & Wax

Has anyone ever used ultra luster waterless wash ? Give me your opinions please. We have a 35ft FW Jayco Eagle.
How often should your rig be waxed?

Those wash & wax products rarely put much actual wax on the surface, so I would say to use then regularly. Once a month or so if the RV gets dirty, and maybe every 3 months if you are just trying to keep some wax on it while not in use.

I use a wipe-on/off wax protectant product like Protect All or Gel Gloss One Step and do it once a year.

I have never heard of those products, so I have never used "But" this is what I have done last 4 years.
First year was really a pain as the MH sat under a Maple tree for almost 6 years and showed the results of doing so.(previous owner)6 (before I bought her) It was pretty Blk from the sap's from the tree.
First I used a product called,
1. Mold Armor E-Z House Wash, connects to the end of your garden hose.Spray on wait a few minutes and
Pressure washed it off and the Blk mold with it. Bought @ (HomDepot)
I think around 25 bucks

2. Meguiar's Mirror Glaze #83 Dual Action Professional Dual Action Cleaner/polisher, (I have a really bad back and Arthritis in right hand (managed with Pain Meds) This part took a week. Even with a professional buffer 30 foot MH

3.PPU (Perfection Products Un-LTD) "The Perfect Wax" Euro-Class Cream Wax 32 oz was $29.00.
.Clayed Finish
.Non-Dusting
.Clear Coat Safe
.Restores, Deepens and Shines Colored Finishes
.Removes: Oxidation,Bug Marks, Road Tar,Tree Sap, Bird Droppings and swirl Marks.

Between Waxes I use PPU The Perfect Wax
. Waterless
.Dry Wash and Wax
Same results as above but also Cleans, Seals, Polishes and Protects in One Easy Step.

For a quick detailer I used a product from Wizards Called Mist-n-Shine,
Anti-Static,Anti-Streak,No Silicone,No Oily Film,Slippery, High Gloss,
I found product from NAPA and is usually kept behind the counter. I don't know why and neither did the kid working the counter.
It also removes those Dang BLACK STREAKS...
15 bucks.

I have done this 3 times a year with the exception of step 1 & 2

I use Optimum No Rinse..

Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine: clay lubricant, optimum rinseless wash, no rinse car wash, optimum detailing products

It's not a wax, but its a rinse-less wash. Use it all the time, even at campgrounds since no hose is needed and no real runoff.

Look up Purple Slice. One step and I use the laminate floor cleaner with the blue rectangular micro fiber pads. Spray the pad and start cleaning. With the telescoping pole you don't need a ladder. Have extra pads to change as they get dirty then throw in washer. Do it as you would washing on a regular basis and you're all set.

I also use a product called Wash and Wax All. Vary easy to use. You can put it on even it the RV is wet. Have used it for over 6 years. I used to a thing called Protect All sold at most RV stores. But it kept clogging up so I switch to Wash and Wax All. Use it once a month on the day before doing weekend camping. Now I don't live anyplace that has bad weather (San Diego CA) but it is parked outside under the flight path of the San Diego International Airport. So lots of stuff in the air.

I have just used Wash Wax All & am pleased with the results. Took about an hour to do the whole coach. Beads water when it rains & doesn't ;eave any streaks.

We use Rejex twice a year (spring and fall) and try to put a coat on the front before every trip. After the first application it goes on and off easy. I also think it works better than Rain-X for the windows.

RejeX: Nothing Sticks but the Shine!

It isn't cheap but neither was our coach.

Yes I have used it. It works great for cleaning and shining things up. Works well on glass. It does not however have many way properties as it will wash off with rain. Easy to apply and remove but you would still want to wax once a year.


I have found that I prefer protect all to it though.

Are you referring to Rejex?
I have waxed the front almost every-time we come home or get to a CG and used Rejex after every wax. Those peskie bugs just wipe right off.
Nothing like a clean front end. I'll have to try it on the glass never tried that. When I use the buffer (Milwaukee Professional) I go over the windows lightly and that works great.
What is Protect all? a Wax or cleaner or both?
I'm always looking too have a clean and shinned MH
Thanks, Tim

Ultra Luster is what I was referring to. A friend use to sell it so I used it for a while. Personally have not used Rejex yet. Protect all is a cleaner and wax. It also helps against UV. Comes in aerosol cans or squirt bottles.
