    What Wax Are You Using?

    I have had a devil of a time with the search feature on this forum so I will just post my question.

    What 'wax' are you using for the exterior of your rigs?

    Google wasn't much of a help as each manufacturer says theirs is the best.

    I used Mequires Cleaner Wax on my last rig.
    I did have some premature peeling of the graphics and I would like to avoid that on my new rig.

    I used Zip Wash & Wax for regular washes and have no complaints there.


    Thanks in advance for your comments.

    For whatever it's worth, Consumer Reports likes Nu Finish and that's what I use. I used Zaino products on my Z06 but I'm not as picky about the 5th wheel.

    Please report back. I've had my eye on that.

    I've just been using a jug of camco wash/wax that I got a long time ago.

    Been using Aero Cosmetics after each use from day one. Been great. Once a year I buff with chemical Brothers butter wax.

    Like others, I use Wash Wax All (it's very popular with the full-timers in the Escapees RV Club). That said, most experts in the detailing business say that the new ceramic protectants provide more protection and for longer. What I like about the Wash Wax All is that it's "waterless" and, if the rig isn't absolutely filthy, can be used in parks that don't allow on-site washing - a big plus for full-timers.

    I use Gel-Gloss RV Super Poly Polish. Seems to last through the whole summer. I polish the rig in the spring before the first trip

    Just did the passenger side and slide. I hosed off some dirt and dust from desert boon docking and let it air dry. Then went back over with the Wash Wax All. It took me about 40 minutes but sure it will be faster now that I did it once. It took some elbow grease to get the water spots off, but not sure if I used enough spray the first time. Definitely better then wet washing and drying, so definitely glad I bought it.

    I use Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Spray Wax Coating. I live in the Northeast and use it on my truck too. Even after a harsh winter and lots of road salt, my truck still beads water. Spray it on, wipe it off. Have a beer.

    Another Aeroproducts convert here. I used to use Klasse, but using WashWaxAll does great with so much less effort. I do still Klasse the cap twice a year.

    FYI - ceramic coatings do nothing with gelcoat. You'd be wasting your money! If you have full body paint, then by all means.
