I use auto washing soap and a few oz bleach to remove any mold/mildew stains on plastic trim and awnings. I use a Mr. Clean rinsing dispenser for final rinsing-no streaks or water spots when dry. Replacement cartridges are somewhat spendy, but I'm lazy_ chamois are work.

I use the Blue Corral wash and wax . I buy it at Wal-Mart . To much work to put wax on, just to wash it off with a harsh soap. I like Mothers paste and all cars and MH are waxed at least once a year. I do like the spray and shine, but after being on the road in all kinds of weather, I prefer washing to get the heavy dirt and grim off.

On the advice of other RV'ers, I went to Wally-World and bought the Mr. Clean washing kit. It comes with a three way nozzle, soap, and filter. One position on the nozzle is for wet down, another for soap down, and a third for final rinse. (twist selectable) After wetting and soaping, I use a microfiber cloth on a long tool (also purchased at WalMart) and wipe the area with it, then using the wet down nozzle I rinse it off. Then switch to the final rinse which goes through their filter. I do an area at a time, and when I'm finished I just walk away. Occasionally there will be a water line from a window area that I use Turtle Wax ICE on, or just a microfiber cloth. Mr. Clean leaves no spots after the final rinse. The sell soap refills and filters at WalMart. I use less than 1 filter per wash of the MH. My coach still looks shinny new.

Been a Palmolive man, myself. Get one 5 gallon paint bucket, fill with straight hot water and soap, use large scrub brush to wash down, then hose off. No wax.

Now, granted, I don't have fiberglass to deal with.
