Cleaning Gel-Coat RV

Well, this is our first Travel Trailer. We bought 2009 Wolf Pack 27 DFWP. Just curious what everyone is using to clean the outside Gel-Coat of their RV. I have read lots about Protect-All and i do plan on purchasing some of that and use. Any input would be appreciated.

I use turtle wax car wash to clean it and then Turtle Wax ICE to protect it.

IF it's not too grungy you can pretty much use anything you'd use
on your car.
Turtle wax car shampoo or even simple green.
The secret to black streaks is to get them off EARLY.
They are MUCH easier to remove if you don't leave them on there too long!

ON our tough black streaks I use Magic Eraser, It works wonders. I then immediately rewax the places I use them on because it takes the wax off.

Is the meguiars car wash safe to use on the Gel Coating? I don't want to pull off the gel coat or decals.

If it's safe for an automobile it's safe for a trailer.
