wash & wax

So as a new TT owner I'm wondering what everyone uses to clean and wax their aluminum sided trailer and rubber roof.
I hear Wesleys bleah brite works good on awning & dawn dish soap for the roof with a mop.

Any feedback?

After cleaning then protect it all with 303 Aerospace Protectant, from your awning to pin stripes to roof and tires with 303 protectant. You can get it by the gallon from Amozon for $45, check it out.

If using 303 on aluminum siding do I still need to wax?

303 is a great UV protectant and is great on decals because wax will dry out your decals, and many will tell you to avoid wax on decals. However 303 is not a wax and will not cause water to bead up like a wax does, and make for easier washing as wax does. I prefer to use a wax product on the trailer and use 303 on decals.

X2 on the using a wax but, 303 on the decals. It's sometimes a little tough to steer around the decals but, manageable. I use NuFinish on the trailer and it's easy to put on and off. I just don't put it on the decals, I use 303 on those.

Do a quick search as WFD said, you'll find tons of opinions and options.

Dealer suggested to just wash with car wash such as RainX since there is a gel coat on the new camper. We did it this way all year. In the past we had used a dry polish that you apply and then wipe off. It allowed for water to bead and gave it a good shine. Could also be used on windows. It was not purchased from a store but from a person who sells the material. Since that person is not around anymore, I can't help you with the name of product.
