I have used Turtle Was Zip wash/wax on my cars for years, and now use it on my full body paint motorhome too. It works great ...easy on and don't really need to chamois it dry unless you just want to. When I am in a park where we can't wash and still need some sprucing up, I use a large California Duster.

Liquid Glass is excellent. I have recently been using Mequier's NXT Liquid Wax and the colors are deep rich with a glass appearance. There is a person here that does does many RVs and uses NXT Wax. You can get NXT Wax @ Wal*Mart for about $15.00... Takes two bottles for a 42 foot MH. No special buffer required unless you need a lot of extra work.

Pink Glob stuff

I bought some sort of pink glob stuff in a bottle. ‘RV wash & wax “at Camping World. The instructions says 2 to 3 oz in a bucket of water. Well ..I poured some into the bucket of water and it went right to the bottom I had to steer and steer to get it to mix. Then I went to work cleaning the camper the light dark streaks wasn’t budging and over all the camper still did not looking any better. So I added more pink glob to the bucket and try again I was rubbing and scrubbing my arm off.. I have to say the camper was little cleaner with black streaks still there. I think just water would have been just as good or dish soap may have been better then the pink glop stuff. But anyway.. happy camping to all.

I vote for Meguiars. They make a Marine and RV kit that works great. My daughter used Meguiars on her unrestored Mustang, and received the gold award at the Mustang Club of America national meet.

Lightbulb Polish N Polish

My Garage was always full of all kinds of Polishes... Not anymore!

I love, when somebody else puts some wax on or I use ICE..............

The easiest ON / OFF for me.... getting too old to use elbow grease up

Keep them shiny!!!!!!!

I vote for NuFinish. Two coats per year. No petroleum products in it. I have been using it for years, on my vehicles and on my coach. But, the older I get, along with my sciatica, I agree with Joe, "The one someone else applies."

IN RE: Peeling graphics and NuFinish, et al: Only my dark graphics are peeling. The others are not. I thought the darker ones were or may be peeling because of attracting the sun's heat. JMO

I use Turtle wax ice car wash which has wax in it and then use the ice wax to finish the job.

I use Mequier's wax on all my vehicles! Easy On and Easy Off !
In fact I'm doing my coach right now!
I also use Thetford's RV Wash and Wax, I believe that does a pretty good job in cleaning and keeping the shine up.
It takes me 3 hours to wash and dry my coach and I've just started waxing. In two evenings I still don't have a quarter of it done!
One thing though that really starts to bother me is the constant up and down on the ladder!

I use Gel-Gloss Heavy Duty RV Wash and Wax whenever I wash the MH and keep the finish up with Meguires Gold Class paste wax. For the weekily cleanup I use Meguires Quick Detailer or Meguires Quick Wax. It's the same thing I use on the motorcycle.

I did some research on Megiars RV/Marine waxes and got this reply regarding using their products on decals:

"Unfortunately I don't have a single wax that I can recommend for use on decals. All of the waxes will leave a film on the decals and potentially even turn the area white and discolor it. You can use the waxes on your fiberglass , but we will always recommend that you avoid the decals so you do not get a film on them.

On of the best long lasting waxes that we offer for Boats and RV's is our flagship premium Marine wax."

Great topic. I have washed my MH 5 or 6 times this year, and since it is new to me, I have not waxed it yet. My 96 Pace Arrow is a Fiberglass / Gel finish so the marine wax sounds great. It really needs a compound and wax. Has anyone compounded their MH?

Who thought that owning a motorhome could be so expensive..errr FUN!! HAPPY CAMPING
