Aw, get out of here. That's some sort of stock glamour shot. You don't expect us to believe that do you?

I'm going to definitely use Rejex on the front. I'm going to also look at the stuff you recommended. I've also seen people who liked the Griots line of product and they're talked about in this months edition of Motorhome Magazine. On previous coaches I've just used a high end carnuba, but since is the first wax for this coach, I want to spend some time researching. If the Rejex is the best solution but it's just more work to apply, I may go that direction and just take my time.

It's real! I'm too ugly to be in a glamour shot! Seriously, it was taken at Bluewater key last spring. I washed/hand waxed the coach before departing home. Drove thru some rain, and then used the solution once on site.

And by the time she's complaining how tired and sore she is, I just remind her that she's over half way done. Fires her right up!

I have found an easy product to use which is a real plus, and the results are amazing. The product is called "The Solution", available from super-seal.com. It goes on with a microfiber towel, simply wipe on and spread around till dry, and the vehicle does not need to be washed prior to using it. I have not washed my MH or Jeep toad for almost 3 years now. As you know, most RV Parks don't allow you to wash your rigs in the park, but this stuff works great without any pre-wash. Being a full timer, I have to clean my rig in the RV parks, and I even developed a simple tool to hold the microfiber towel so I don't have to use a ladder at all. When I first got my MH 5 yrs. ago, it used to take me about 4-5 hrs. just to wash it with soap and water, and then it needed to be dried to keep from spotting. It now takes me about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs. to do the entire MH, and the results are fantastic. It can also be put on in direct sunlight with no adverse affects.

When we bought our Monaco Diplomat in 2005, I was 48 years old and everything still worked.....on my body that is. I waxed that coach probably three to four times a year by hand, as a proud new owner. The front got waxed almost every trip and I often waxed it while on long trips before we drove home.

I've used Rejex, Meguiars, Blue Corral, Zymol, NuFinish and several other spray on waxes. It was a 36' and I was able to wax the entire coach at one time. As the years went by, I was still able to wax the coach often, but I slowed down on how much I could do at one time. Often doing the lower half one day and the upper half another day.

Of all the waxes I've tried, I found that the NuFinish actually held the shine the longest. The Meguiars, a paste wax, was a pretty close second. The Meguiars was the most successful in rejuvenating my 3M mask and lasting more than one trip.

We now have a new Dutch Star that is 3' longer and seems about 5' taller. For me, a coach doesn't seem like it's mine until I wax it from head to toe. We've had the coach for a month and each time I walk out and think about waxing it, now at 58 years old, my arms start to ache, I groan a little, slump my shoulders and walk back into the house.

Today, I hand waxed the rear and my shoulders were killing me. I've been using a rolling mechanics seat to do the lower sides, but decided it's time to buy a good quality buffer. This thread was timely as last night I was looking for a Porter Cable Dual Action buffer I could buy locally. I was anxious to see what "statgeek" had to say since he's using a buffer.

The Porter Cable info says the buffer will stall if you put to much pressure on and are endanger of burning the paint. Now I just need to find a good quality liquid wax for the buffer.
