    Waxing the exterior of our 317 RST

    I know I have seen info on recommendations for which wax to use on the Reflection units but can not find the info now.
    I search on wax, etc but it comes back with too many items to display.

    Can someone direct me to the thread or are there recommendations on which wax to use.

    Thank you

    WashWaxAll, easy on and off. Many of us use it. I'd recommend the kit, its worth every penny.
    If you buy the kit off amazon you do not recieved the small head for the nose.

    I know lots of folks use WashWaxAll, but I still prefer a good carnauba wax and hand application. I use Thetford's Premium RV Wax.

    Finding a suitable wax isn't an issue...it's finding a waxER!

    Exclamation

    I found a waxER when I was staying at Santa Rosa RV park in FL this month....he charges $125 to wash or $325 to wash and wax, I'm retired with not much to do so I can be the waxER!
    Advil is cheaper

    We just had our RV washed and waxed (36' fifth wheel) in Las Cruces, NM, for under $200. They did and excellent job and use an aircraft wax because it has better UV protection (don't remember the brand).

    We paid the dealer a bit extra for a special coating on the whole RV (inside and out) for 5 years of no wax protection. It's very easy to wash with the coating. Sometimes just spray it off to clean it.

    I did a higher end protection for my motorcycle. It's black and was hard to keep clean, but with the Opti Coat it's a breeze to keep clean. Well worth the money.
