Spot on! Drove me nuts trying to get 303 to work streak free after i waxed. Finally i regulated 303 to the tonneau cover protectant, life is much more stress free after that...

Once it's clean, why not try either Poliglow or REJEX. Both of them are weather resistant but a 'bear' to apply. The marine wax is weather resistant as well but wont last as long.

Brent, my bad. John is on the money and I just went through this - should have remembered. I did finally get the 303 to work OK but had to wait a week for the wax to air out. Next time I'm going to wait a month or so I figure. On this trip we are going to try to swab down the trailer every 30-60 days with the 303 to hopefully prevent the oxidation/film buildup that occurred last year. Going to try and use a flat headed, swiveling mop setup (sort of like a Swiffer) and microfiber cloths to put it on and another similar setup with dry towels to remove it (hopefully). Trying to prevent the necessity of running the buffer all over it when we get back.

No problem Danny. I'm going to try to finish tomorrow with the 3M. Me and the son kept the babies today while the girls went to the Nutcracker Market all day. All I accomplished today was surfing the internet and changing diapers.
Maybe go over it with the Klasse tomorrow if my arms are still functional. That will be about all I want of it.
How did you get the oxidation off?

I used a heavy duty dual action polisher with Meguiar's 51? wax/restorer. I used a gray/black pad and should have used the blue pad with more stiffness. Oh well, I'll do that next go round - gotta do something to stay fit and trim....

Your nearby Canadian Tire store has these supplies.
You can use a more aggressive pad initially to apply then the wool pad.

Amazon:
3PCS 5" Self-adhesive Woolen Wool Hook Loop Grip Wheel Buffing Pad for Car Compound Cutting Polishing
Sold by: YOMNEE

$19.99 6 inch

I use them to apply and buff and then wipe with a microfiber. I sometimes use a microfiber on a 6 inch random orbit for the final pass.

I had a coating called Perma Plate installed, kind of expensive but it's guaranteed to protect the exterior for 7 years from all weather and bird dropping damage. With it, you don't need any cover, or even have to wax it for the duration of the warranty. It even protects the graphics!
