I have removed 98% of the worn and cracked decals of our Montana 5'er, the oxidation is pretty bad. I was thinking using Meguires Marine wax and oxixdation remover for boats. I contacted Keystone and they said the sides were indeed fiberglass. So I think it would be ok and work on restoring the shine. Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated.

I think others answered your question in an earlier post about Maguire's wax. What did Keystone recommend you use?

This link from Fiberglass RV has a good discussion on waxes

I think I used Maguire's and it was okay. I love Turtle Wax Ice Spray and paste wax for my trucks. It has Carnauba wax and leaves no residue and can use it in the sun. I would try it on my TT if I still had it.
Last a long time and water beads up nicely afterwards.

If you use Maguire's try it out on a test spot to make sure there are no issue?
