For a few years we have used Rejex on our 2015 fifth wheel fiberglass camper. The last couple of times we applied it was difficult. Being you have to do a lot of this job on a ladder, we want to go back to using something easier to apply and wipe off. We use Turtle Wax Ice on our truck and are super happy with application and results—easy to apply and wipe off. I recently learned about new Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Wash and Wax or the Hybrid Solutions Wet Wax which I believe(?) is a polymer like Rejex. How do we go about removing the Rejex other than polishing it off (which we aren’t interested in doing)? Can we just start using something like Turtle Wax Ice or TW Hybrid Solutions (on top of the Rejex without bothering to “remove” it)? Which would better: TW Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Wash/Wax, Hybrid Solutions Wet Wax or Turtle Wax Ice? Asking for opinions. THX

cummins2014 and Second Chance: THX for advice. Do you think we will have to do anything special to the camper being that we've previously used the Rejex before using the Wash Wax All? Just wash it? We usually use car wash liquid on it not just dish soap. Camper has been outside for about a year and then under a shed for about 6 months since last using Rejex on it.

I ordered this product recently as well as a result of a thread on here and WOW! I haven't had a chance to use it on my fiver yet, but I used it on my truck and was absolutely amazed at how well it worked. I will definitely be trying it on my fiver when I get it out of storage this spring.
