Individuals are VERY passionate about the RV cleaning/waxing products they use. I use the following products for the ease of application, UV protection, long lasting, good shine, and beading action--Turtle Wax ICE and Wash and Wax All

Nu Finish liquid on the sides. Aerospace 303 on the roof after cleaning.

I also use the same products & have had good results at affordable prices. I use a mix TW Car Wash soap & Mcquires Gold car wash also with good results. Use Simple Green concentrate mixed on the strong side in a pump up sprayer, spray roof & let set a few minutes, then use the soap mixture scrubbing with a medium bristle brush & rinse. Use the SG on the awnings as well, spray down, roll up for a few minutes, scrubbing with the same brush & soap & rinse.

May I suggest not using product with "petroleum" on your decals as it will loosen the adhesive "they say!" My claim to still flawless decals is that I don't us petroleum based products and they still look great since February 2012 when it rolled off of the assembly line! And then again there may be those.....

Pretty much whatever wax you like... I use turtle wax spray...the one called “Ice” I also apply 303 to all the dark colors on mine twice a year.. really protects from fade due to UV

Seems most of the RV detailers in the Yuma AZ area use Maguires Gold. Don't know why but when we were there last month and had our rv done Washed and waxed, they used Maguires Gold. I went around the park we were staying in and and asked several different outfits that were washing and waxing RV's with, before the people left to head up North. All of them were using Maguires Gold some also using Maguires wash and wax. I made the 900 mile trip home and there were bugs on the front of my fiver. It rained a couple of days later and the bugs are all gone, and my fiver looks shiny and new.

Whatever you use, use it often. I'm doing battle with the Texas sun and I'm losing. Once you "lose it" you can't get it back. If I have $1 worth, I have $500 worth of wax, cleaners and compounds.
Next one will be full paint.
Be aware if you use a strong roof cleaner it will strip wax off the sides, so do the roof first.

Nu Finish Liquid Wax, Murphy's Oil Soap on the roof, Gel-Gloss RV Wash and Wax to keep the RV body clean, a Wooster Brush Sherlock Extension Pole with a blue brush head. Additionally, when cleaning the roof I use a tooth brush to clean the gutters out each spring; a lot of black gunk builds up. Cleaning the roof helps eliminate the black streaks, removing the black gunk in the gutters helps even more.
