Has anyone found a good one-step wash and wax product to use on a class A coach?

Thank you

If my coach is not real dirty and is just dusty, I just use a drywash called the Solution. But if the coach is real dirty I just wash it with soft water, then I spray it with a liquid wax called Blue Coral sold at Wal-Mart. Then just wipe it dry with a soft towel and it gives it a real nice shiny look. Might want to check it out.

I use whatever wash/wax product looks good. They are great for reducing some spotting but it does not replace a good wax job. Between major wax jobs I use a quick wax such as RainX or Mcguires. Spray on and wipe off to remove water spots or road wear. I wax my Motor Home at least 4 times a year with a good cleaning wax and gel coat wax. I have a Flex dual action buffer and also use some cutting wax to get rid of any heavy oxidation I find. Usually the sides of the coach are fine with a good wax and buffing but the back and front usually need to be stipped and cleaned along with the wax.

Keeping down oxidation and fading takes some effort especially in an older coach. Besides its good exercise and relaxing.

I wax twice a year with Nufinish and use Lucas Slick Mist between wax jobs. The Slick Mist does a great job either dry or wet.

I use The Solution for waterless wash, 303 on Diamond Shield, Turtle Wash and Wax for thorough washing, and Mc Guires High Tech twice a year. The Purple Polish works great on Aluminum Wheel Covers.

I used to use The Solution, but now I just hire The Situation to come out and do it for me. That's how he keeps the abs up. [emoticon]

Or not.

My hat is off to the guys who wax their coaches 3 or 4 times a year. They are better men than I. I just waxed mine for the first time since it was new and finish looks brand new. Hooray for Clear Coat paint jobs.
