Gel-gloss is the product we use . Special for fiberglass surfaces.
Also run a squeegee down the walls to speed drying and remove soap .
NOTE: this product makes the floor very slippery ; shower mat required.

I use whatever's cheapest at WalMart. I've used Turtle Wax, Mothers, Nu Finish - but I get the spray, not the paste (easier application). I'd advise NOT waxing the shower floor.

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

How long will the wax job keep it clean ? At some point I presume you still have to take 15 to do a thorough cleaning. We've been using clean shower-- holds off the inevitable for a month or so.

Most any kind of car or boat wax will do nicely. We use the same Protect-All that we use on the RV. Use it for most anything in the kitchen or bath that likes to be shiny.

I use Rain-X. It causes the soap and water to bead-up and run off instead of staying in place and drying into that stubborn film we all hate to scrub away.

I use Rejex in the shower and all over the exterior of the coach including the windshield. Water beads up and runs off. It is much easier to remove than Rain x and lasts longer

I just use a squeegee on mine which I bought at Bed, Bath & Beyond-perfect size for my shower. I would be scared to wax anything in a shower - chance of a fall at our ages is too great.

Hmmm... never thought to wax the shower walls.
Somehow I don't think I will start now.

We do the same thing in the MH and in our house. Arm & Hammer brand Clean Shower. Mist it on the whole shower after each use and it still looks almost new. Smells pretty good too.

My wife finds it on sale for around 2 bucks and a bottle will last around 2 weeks in our bedroom shower, which gets used an average of 2 times per day.
