Give Wash Wax All a try. Can be used on glass as well. Spray on wipe off. Can be used to wash vehicle with out water if not real dirty. Otherwise rinse off first. You can spray and wipe while still wet, then dry with separate towel. Works great on my 2016. Use it on my Jeep also.

I've used a wide range of synthetics over the past 10 years or so. Now I am firmly attached to REJEX. I have been blown away by the quality of shine, the ease of application and removal and the long term stability of the application after multiple washes.

REJEX is a bit pricey but its worth it. I got mine on Amazon. One 16 oz bottle will just barely cover a 40' Class A. I am currently doing it 1X per year but may do 2 times. Will know in the fall.

A recent long thread with all the same answers / opinions.

https://www.irv2.com/forums/f103/which-wax-483473.html

BTW, a wax and a polish are not the same, explained in linked threads in the above. A wax (or more appropriate for an RV, a sealant) protect the paint, a polish “corrects” the paint and is generally applied by machine, and needs to be followed with a wax / sealant. While there are cleaner waxes / sealants that contain “some” polish, as with most “all in one” products, it’s generally a compromise.

Lots of reading if you are interested, but in short, it’s all about your own expectations, and how much work / time / effort / expense you want to put into. Getting into detailing with an RV is an uphill learning curve if you haven’t done much with your cars to give you a starting point. Pick an appropriate product from the long list of suggestions and see how it goes from there, because there is always another one to try....

I will add that some of the spray finishes are getting better, including the Ceramic Infused products, but durability / how long they last on an RV in particular given being outside all the time and how often you want / need to apply them is a question / consideration.

Also, how you wash your coach is even more important, with plenty about that in the referenced threads as well.

Pricey is relative.... my post #84 in the attached link is a reference to what pricey can entail , but I really wouldn’t consider those products appropriate for an RV anyway .

Good luck.

I’ve had good luck with Meguires Flagship Marine Wax. I used on our old 2008 Sunova last spring and it really brought the colors out and held up well all season, the coach still gleamed when I traded it in last fall. I’ll be attacking the Vista with it next weekend assuming the weather cooperates.

You can probably find locally or definitely on Amazon.

Two bottles once a year and an occassional touch up with the Quick wax. Basically a wipe down with a spray bottle. Looks likes a plastic coating.

I used Nu Finish for 30 years....until I got turned on to Meguiar's Cleaner Wax. With MCW, you can do the entire vehicle (NF says do a section at a time); MCW does not leave white powder all over the vehicle and your buffing rag, MCW is easier to put on, easier to remove, does not require to coats in 30 days....and is under $7 at Wally World.

I'm currently doing my third application of Rejex on two different motor homes. It goes on easy, dries to a powder then wipes off. I find it takes a little more than a full bottle to do our 42' motor home.

Quick Spray Concentrate. Dilute this and put in a spray bottle.

If you really get crazy and want to use a clay bar to remove all tiny contaniments the Quick Spray Concentrate is a grate lubricant to keep the clay sliding nicely.

I'm no detail guy but I have use the Marine polish on my boats for years and the Automotive Polish on my Rv's, vehicles, and even my home built airplane.

You can feel the wax/polish leaving a coat as you go. It dries quickly and is so easy to buff off. It does take two full bottles to do my 42 foot RV.

I have used many of their other products as well. But I have purchased small cases of the polish and quick spray.
