Wax For 2860DS Sunseeker

Way too many bugs and super hard to remove from the front of the MH (Fiberglass body and E-450 front) So what wax works the best and easiest to apply, to help in bug removal after a trip. yearly application would be best. I saw one post for Nu Finish.

Thanks

I use the good old Turtle Wax, never had a problem removing bugs, Get the paste it works the best.

Our solution to bug removal is wet newspaper over the splatter for an hour or two and they'll normally come right off. Splat to Remove time seems to be a major parameter; we 'cherry pick' the easy ones each evening if possible.

Rejex. I used it this spring before our trip to Florida. Used it just on the front fiberglass cap and front cab. Ran into a few swarms of the lovebugs on the way back home. Everything washed off the front with a normal washing, no damage from lovebug guts (I've read that they can permanently ruin paint).

Simple Green seems to work for me. I use it on the whole coach (except the van part). Works great for black streaks also.

Rejex seems similar to Poli Glow (which I have not used but did research on it). I never heard of Rejex before this post.
Anyone try Poli Glow?
These "coatings" leave me skeptical especially Poli Glow since the application seems to be very laborious but I don't enjoy chore of scrubbing the over cab fiberglass nose from a ladder either.
I've tried the soaking process. Heck, I'm in south Louisiana where most nights have dew form as soon as the sun sets so that's around 12 - 13 hours of soaking under the humid night air. It helps but still requires a good bit of elbow work - even with the 3M film which brings me to their spray-on removable film: 3M Paint Defender Spray Film with synthetic wax - Sprayable Paint Protection Film, 90000 - 3M Auto

I'm interested in any tried and true products or process. Like Florida, I'm in a bug haven.

thanks, Is the Rejex hard to apply? I've been told only lasts around 6 months? Any other recommendations? I too am in desert country Washington state.. can't go anywhere without lots of bugs.
Thanks again

Wax For 2860DS Sunseeker

We've used Nu Finish on our fiver for the last 2 years and feel it's easy to apply and remove but not sure if it's as durable as I would like. The next time I wax it I'm going to use a Meguiar's marine wax, reviews on that product seem to be pretty good. As for bug removal, we use Bounce dryer sheets and they work great. Just get the sheet wet and gently scrub them off. Wipe any remaining residue with a clean, damp towel.

Thanks.
Good or bad on Meguiar's Flagship Premium Marine Wax?
I heard it shined up great but didn't last long?

Yes, from what I have read, Rejex lasts about 6 months tops. It is a liquid, goes on easy, wait 10-15 minutes, wipe off. Similar application to Nu-finish, but the Rejex is a little easier to wipe off. I was worried about the love bugs on our trip, did alot of research on various RV sites, and Rejex came highly recommended. Got it on Amazon. I only use it on the front, for the fiberglass sides I use Aerospace 303. Its a UV protectant, keeps the decals from fading. I apply it to the tires and window frames also, does a nice job. Really easy to apply. Spray on, wipe dry immediately.
