What's the best wax

The manufacturer recommends that the coach be waxed twice a year (preferably). What is the best wax to use on a full paint fiberglass coach?

McGuires RV/marine would be my choice.

I've been using Dry Wash N Guard for years now, even on the glass. Works great and water and dirt pretty much don't stick. Don't even need the wipers unless it's raining pretty hard and I'm not moving very fast.

So you just spray it on and wipe it off? Dirt and all? Interesting, very interesting.

I prefer sealants over waxes. Just used Rejex on the Motorhome. Easy on and easy off.

What is "best" to you? Greatest shine? Longest lasting? Easiest to apply? Most effective at removing oxidation or scratches?

I like ProtectAll, which is a mild cleaner, excellent surface sealer (technically, not a wax) and very easy to apply, but if I have nasty dirt or a scratch to remove, I go for something that takes more effort but actually "polishes" the paint. For the front cap, which gets all the bug hits and road splatters, I generally use Dri-wash or Maguire RV "wax" (neither are actually waxes). \

If I was more energetic, I would probably apply a paste wax after cleaning the front end, just because it lasts longer, but it seems easier to re-wax the front a couple times a year with a light duty sealer than the major effort of a paste wax.

Any polish suitable for automotive paints is fine for the full-body painted Rvs. If not painted, a marine fiberglass polish would be a better choice.

+1 on Rejex. Use it on the Corvette. Easy on easy off. Lasts a long time.
