Our MoHo has a clear coat over the full body paint.
Any good car wax is suitable for clear coat finishes.
Just finished mine with the Meguiar’ Ultimate Liquid Wax Item #G18216C
Pleased with the results, easy on easy off. 12 hours to do the complete unit.
Meguiar’ also sells in their Marine/RV section Premium Marine Wax
Item #M6316C

Any good automotive wax should do fine.

Any good quality wax will do (not a "polish" or "cleaner wax", those are for buffing out scratches and don't offer as much long-tern protection). Armour All Extreme Shield is cheap and works great! Mother's California Gold Carnuba paste wax will leave you with an AWESOME shine that'll look even deeper than it does now, as will be the case with most Carnuba paste waxes, like Meguiar's etc. If you're doing it by hand, paste waxes are far less messy.

Oh, and after it's waxed, look into buying "Instant Detailer" or "Quick Detailer", which will prolong the life of your wax job 10-fold. I use it pretty much once a month.

Have fun!

My DW likes meguiars ultimate liquid wax, she says it comes off easier. It looks great. I did buy another step ladder ,the old one was too short and DW couldn't reach the upper areas of the RV.

Just kidding....I do like meguiars

We use NuFinish, very easy to apply. We like it because it holds up very well. We wax our coach once a year in the spring.

Wax! Polish!
I thought that clear coat was put on so that the shine would stay.

I don't wax, I just keep it clean. it is now 4 years old and is still as shinny as the day I bought it.

It has never had a brush put to it, only microfiber mitts or clothes, clean ones.
