Oh NO! waxing again already!

Just last November I used Mequiar’s Oxidation remover #4916 and then put on a coat of Starbrite Marine Polish. Did this with a power orbital polisher and it turned out really great but was a lot of work. Now just 5 months later a went to the storage lot and my TT looks just as Faded and bad as it did last fall. Is there a better way? By the way my TT is royal blue and looks great when it is polished but I would give anything if it was just plain white.

I suggest trying topcoat F11, it isn't a gimmick it works, worth the cash

I used a polishing compound and used used nufinish to seal it and wax it.

I head good things about the ceramic waxes. But I have had good luck with the new finish hold a shine for a CV couple of years.

This. I just ordered Hydrocharge Ceramic SiO2 from Chemical Guys. I've used their products for years. This is a spray-on ceramic that works great and lasts for at least a year.

"Wax" is a bit of a misnomer, but yes, the ceramics work better than traditional waxes. Less work to apply and they last far longer.

not an option for many, but the best way to protect the finish (and the rest of the unit) is to park it indoors or under cover. An RV's life is measured in the number of days it spends exposed to the elements IMO.

I had a HD tent for my last RV and I'll be getting another (or a "carport") for the new one as well.

HD = Heavy Duty as opposed to the cheapy light duty ones that last a year or collapse at the first sign of snow. Mine had a "12 oz" cover
