There MUST be someone on RV.NET that works with decals that can tell all of us how to handle the waxing question. I used to do a lot of vinyl signs but never had to deal with the waxing question.

Wash RV using mild detergent or what ever you use (do not use rv wash/wax all in one) then apply the 303 on decals with soft cloth as directed from bottle. Then if you choose to wax, go ahead and do so...the entire RV, decals included. The 303 protects the decals. Now please understand...everyone, this is how it was suggested to me from the 303 company when I called them. If you read the testimonials on their web, this is how it is described as well. You can use the 303 cleaner to wash your RV then the Protectant afterwards and it gives you a shine worthy of wax if not better. I have not tried it that way yet, but looking forward to it this Spring...I will post how it worked out. I know that this is to each his/her own....It is just merely another way to wash/wax.

I have been using Protectall for going on 5 years now and the fiberglass and decals still look new. It's easy on easy off and have had no issues with graphics fading or peeling or cracking; and it sits in the sun all day.

My rig is over 18 yrs old and except for the minor ding or two it looks like new .. don't use anything fancy and the decals are doing just fine.

I use 303 on the whole thing, including slide seals, tires, gelcoat, decals, and on and on. It's easy to use and seems to do a good job.
