Everyone has their favorite, but any quality automotive wax will do just fine.

I use what ever is cheapest, usually Turtle or Mothers.
I used to manage a couple of ACE HW stores so I had an opertunity to try several different brands on the cheap. None of them seem to work or last any longer than another nor did they harm the graphics.
The only one I would never use again is ICE. It left an oily residue behind that was tough to get rid of. Others seem to really like the stuff.

YMMV.

I use Maguires cleaner wax, but no wax on the decals I have learned my lesson after 7 campers in 24 years.

I use zaino. The shine lasts at least twice as long as wax, but they don't sell it in stores.

This.
I use it on trucks/cars/fast boats/rv trailers/50 hp blue tractor/'hopper zero turn mower/cub cadet garden tractor....even the wifes bird feeder pole. Squirrels/coons can't climb the pole when its waxed.
