Exterior clear caulking turned White

I bought a 2008 Winnebago Access and decided to wax it, the clear caulking going around the frames on the lower exterior storage doors turned white. It absorbed the wax,

I used some 91% isopropyl Alchohol and it removed quite a bit of the wax, but not all of it. My problem is the lower part of the Class C is painted brown so it still does not look that great.

Anyone have an idea what I could use to remove more of the wax? Also is there anything I need to do to keep the caulking from becoming brittle. The caulking has very fine extremely small cracks in it.

Thanks for the help

Greg

As you learned WAX will do that, (turn white when to drys completely).
I don't know how to fix it but using a polish/protectant that doesn't turn white will prevent that.
