I would say it depends on how you apply the wax. If using a hand applicator I would always avoid the stickers. When I was using the buffer yesterday it was impossible to avoid the stickers. I later went back over the stickers with 303 Protectant just to remove the wax I got on them since they looked crappy.

I am thinking about using a polymer on my Forrest River. First I'll probably use 3-M Finesse-It-II to take off oxidation then use a product called, Leverage. Leverage is a marine product I have used for about 5 years on my boat. It is a wipe on, wipe off. Shines well & lasts all season. After using Leverage, when you wash your RV, use no soap, it's not necessary and will kill the polymer.

Is Leverage similar to Rejex? Also, is it only available at marinas and boating stores? Finally, cost please.

Rejex seems to be a polymer also. May want to check this website-
RejeX: Nothing Sticks but the Shine!

As to the cost of Leverage, 20.00 + bucks, one bottle will do my 29 ft. boat two times. For my part the ease of applicatiion makes it cheap. It will not make the surface shine, you need to have it shiny when you apply, it is a protectant, not a wax. There are some others out there, Buff Magic & Pro Polish. Whatever you do, don't use PoliGlow. It is an acrylic ploymer, glorified floor wax, it will look good for about a year, then it will turn yellow & start scaling. Not fun to remove. Just my .02 cents. Been there, done that!

Wondering is anyone can clarify for me:

I bought some LA's Totally Awesome cleaner recently upon the recommendation of this forum. Is it compatible with the Mothers or Meguiars or do I need to use their cleaning products first? Maybe it doesn't matter at all as long as you get the exterior cleaned and rinsed?

Am confused about the use of Mothers cleaner and glaze product. Is the really part of a 3 step process (part 2)? Their California Gold step 1 is a wax. Step 2 is the cleaner/glaze. Step 3 is the Brazilian Carnauba wax. Do I really need the step 1? Can I use the cleaner/glaze product and then their Carnauba wax?

What about Mothers marine synthetic wax? Can I clean with the Totally awesome and go straight to Mothers marine wax? If I use this stuff, do I really need to clean the wax off before I re-wax?

And can't seem to find out how much wax to buy. Would I need 2 or 3 16 oz. bottles of spray wax?

My arms are aching already just thinking about this project.

The totally awesome cleaner had very fine abrasives in it, and very little wax. Great for removing a winter's worth of oxidation. Once that is buffed off, the trailer is ready for either a wax, or a sealer then a wax.
The cleaner is important because if you wax over an oxidized surface, it will remain so.
The beauty of the cleaner is that you don't have to do it every time. Just once a year. After that you can simply wax after sponge washing or glaze then wax.
Mother's labels change year to year (marketing) but step one is always a cleaner (white liquid). Step 2 is labelled as a glaze or a sealant (yellow liquid) and step 3 is always pure carnauba. (Yellow gold liquid)

Example. For my truck I just did the mothers 3 step process with a second coat of carnauba for good measure. For my new 5 er, ill skip the cleaning step , go straight to glaze/sealant, then substitute a marine fiberglass wax with synthetics or Teflon in it instead of the carnauba. Will last longer. Would like to do it just once a season.
Next season when it's a year old, ill add the cleaning step.

I think Awesome would be fine to wash with, I think it will srtip any old wax off and let you start fresh.
I would be sure to rinse well, to make sure there is no residue left. I would think Mothers would be a good choice. I think any marine wax will give good service.
