Lots of previous threads on this subject. Lots of different recommendations.

I would not use a wax. I am too lazy to remove and replace one or two times per year.

I put Poly Glow on my fiberglass TT a couple of years ago. It made getting the bugs off the front easy. It is still working today even though the recommendation is to reapply it once per year. It does not yellow. It does not peel or otherwise require removal before applying a fresh coat.

Someday I may hire a young person to reapply.

Get the kit. Clean correct tools are vital for a good job. Follow instructions exactly. It is not a wax. It needs to be applied according to instructions.

Just the wording "chemical guys" turns me off.

We always used 303 products that are safe for painted RVs and treating rubber/vinyl.

As full-timers and not able to wash the RV whenever we wanted we used 'The Solution' while parked on a campsite. You don't need a hose and running water which some campgrounds won't allow. We used water in a bucket; changed often and got the road dirt off the bottom half on the RV and then applied the easy wipe-on 'The Solution'. When we were at a place where we could use a hose then we did a good washing and then applied 'The Solution' over the whole motorhome. When we sold it after 8 yr. of daily use it looked brand new and never waxed it.

I use their Pink car wash product on my RV with good results. I dry it with a leaf blower, and use car guys hybrid wax twice a year (goes on everything). I don’t get any water spots and the wax provides UV protection. The wax also making getting the bugs off easier.

I really like Chemical Guys and use their products on my RV. I especially like the foam cannon stuff with ceramic in it. I have no idea if it's the absolute best, but I really like using the foam cannon. We use other products also, like Wash Wax All and 303. We do a good waxing twice a year and the rest of the time we do maintenance cleaning with wash/wax products. This has worked for us for a very long time with both RVs and boats.

I've used Chemical Guys products for a few years, and am happy with the results. Had good results with thier Jet Seal, easy on, easy off. I've also used Starbright boat polish for minor oxidation on the front cap of my 5th wheel. 303 on the roof, plastic and rubber.

Thank you for your honest review of our products. We do recommend, for optimal results, to apply a maintenance application every season. At some point, we recommend no later than five years, Poli Glow be completely removed with Poli Strip and then reapplied. We do have detailers that specialize in the application of our products, I am happy to recommend someone. Reach out to me at info@poliglow.com
