Which Wax/Sealant To Use

Well Georgetown Buddies the season of fun in the sun, or the shade of the trees at a beautiful campground is just about here (of course speaking of Northern clime folks). I'm sure the question of what wax/sealant you use and your reasons why have been asked in the past. But, seeing it is a new season upon us I thought I would bring it up again. On my previous rig I used Nu-Finish to good success for the spring waxing. For touch ups and on the front area which is bug prone I would use Eagle spray wax and in a pinch spray furniture polish bought at the dollar store for a buck a can. Now that my GT is almost 35ft., I am looking for an alternative choice. I've read good things about Rejex, though I don't know if it is sold in stores and the on line price of about $19.99 for a 16oz. bottle doesn't really bother me but the $10.95 and such shipping charges do. I am also considering buying an DA orbital buffer. Some folks like the Griot at about $110., I'm leaning to the Porter Cable 7424XP for $5 more, all ball bearing construction and the last buffer I would ever need. If I go the buffer route I haven't decided what polish/wax/sealant I would use. Suggestions and comments would be great!

Save your money and take a vacation to northern Mexico and get a wash and hand paste wax job for $1 a ft. like I did a few weeks ago.
Puerto Penasco Mexico in the Del Oro Campground.

Actuallly when I have nothing lese to do for a few days I wax it myself and porotect it from Arizona high UV with this liquid.
It will not yellow and prection is outstanding. Designed for fiberglass.

Mothers® California Gold® Brazilian Carnauba Cleaner Wax

Been using Mother's for about 5 years now and it's available locally at Autozone and I believe even WalMart sells it. It's still a big job to do but it's an easy application and leaves a great shine.

I may try that next time. You use the liquid or the paste?

My dad always told me to mind my Mother! I have heard or read others who highly recommend Mothers, especially the marine was used by Iggy.

I've been using Meguiars NXT, but I bought some 303 Protectant to try this year.

Although 303 will make your MoHo look good, it rinses off with water after a couple of good rains. I use t on my tires, dash, and decals, but use Protect-All on the glas and paint.

Dang, I'd sure hope it would last longer than a couple rains. I guess I'll go back to using wax and save it for the plastics/rubber.

I just went to WallyWorld and bought a can of this wax. I will give it a try.
