We use Wash Wax All currently on everything we drive, including the coach. Once a year I'll throw in some Armor All Extreme Shield. I've used the Meguiars wash and wax (both the sudsy kind and the waterless) and the Armor All Pearlescent. If we're on a long trip somewhere, I'll hit the Blue Beacon (ask them to not use the brushes) and then follow up when I get home with the Wash Wax All. I might overdo it, but I like it when my coach is shiny.

I just did a full wax job with the new Meguiars Ceramic. It's super easy to apply and wipe off with no residue. One bottle did the full coach, except for the Diamond Shield on the front, with a little left over. Time will tell how well it holds up.

If you have full body paint probably any quality automotive wax will work. If gel coat I would look at marine waxes but I'm betting they're pretty much the same as automotive waxes. Unless you go for the high-end ceramic coatings there is probably not a lot of difference between good waxes, but the marketing guys and gals will try and convince you otherwise. It is a good work out for your arms. Good luck.

I also use Meguiars wash and wax. I apply the wax with an electric disk motor I got from Walmart, around $20. Then remove the haze with a Ryobi battery powered buffer.

I have always used the wash wax concentrates from Wal Mart. I don't hand wax anything, I use the concentrate often. I wash the coach after every trip and after the pollen bombs we have in Central Texas. The coach is always bright and shiny.

I was curious to see what was out there...
In the auto business I see tons of stuff.. some better than others...
The new RV's with a full paint can benefit from newer ceramic coats then maintaince spray and wipes every 6 months or so...

The spray waxes and wash and waxes are nice provided you a clean or polished surfaces to start with..

Older RV with the 70-80% gloss fiberpanels or raps need some elbow grease, a good cleaner polish and maybe some rubbin...

95% of the professional stuff I see or get brought into the shop by reps etc.. requires a cleaned surface by light machine polishing etc, then application of their wax/sealant..
Most need to set for a few hours to overnite..then a final spray on seal coat. They last generally 6 months to a year provided they are cleaned and re sealed now and then.. A few go yearly in some climates..

I like these guys https://gliptone.com/
https://www.chemicalguys.com/
sampled this https://www.glare.com/products?cid=Mg%3D%3D&pn=Aviation I never followed up, worked well

goodluck many good ones out there

I’ve had good luck with Meguires Flagship Wax. Goes on easy, shines well and is usually still beading up next spring when I pull the cover and get going for another year. 1 bottle will do my coach and the the roof edge with some left over.

Meguiars has a new ceramic wash as well, which has you add a ceramic attitude on the other side of the bottle. Been using it on my cars and it really seems to extend the waxing effort. Just had someone do a ceramic wax on the RV a few months ago so Iím going to use the same ceramic wash and see how it does.
