I used car wax, Nu Finish (great on the cars) on my 09 Heartland RV. It has no oxidation but wax job looks splotchy. The metal and plastic parts shine teriffic but not the gel coat. Anyone have a wax they like?
Thanks

Shine Armor Ceramic Quick Coat. Spray it on, wipe it off. No waiting for a haze, no elbow grease. lasts a long time. Very good stuff. Pricey though for how much you get. Shine Armor

Wash N Wax system is fantastic. Spray it on wipe it off, the dirt is gone and I mean really gone, and a wax coat left behind. No water hose needed. Stuff was developed for aircraft and the last time I looked it was rated number one by reviews on Amazon.

I recently used a paste wax which, if applied properly, would do the best job but it ended up with streaks even tho I used an electric buffer. Do the next time I will use a liquid was with the buffer; not sure which one.

I have tried many waxes over the years on fiberglass trailers, including Nu Finish, which left a blotchy finish. Now I stay with Meguiars Flagship Marine Wax. It leaves a high gloss, mirror like finish on my 2004 5th wheel. I use a 10" buffer but it still is a lot of work but worth the effort, IMO.

I use this on the fifth, the boat, the truck etc.
The bugs just slide off when I wash. A great and easy product to use.

But any oxidation should be polished off first.

Driven to perfection

Not cheap at $20 a bottle. Takes two bottles to do our 40 ft DP. After 11 years it glows. Goes on very easy and come off even easier.

If your unit is in need of it use the diluted stuff and some clay to get all the dirt and crud off. Then put on a coat that will last for a year. Use the touch up stuff to wipe it down when needed. You can do a large area before wiping it off.
