Exterior Wax and Decals question

I have searched and tried to read and make sense out of the exterior maintenance options for our new to us 2013 351 THSS. It is currently in great shape with no decals pealing, etc. and I want to keep it looking new for many years.

We have the fiberglass front cap and aluminum sides and then the garage door in the rear. My questions are what wash and wax to sue on the different surfaces? It seems from my searching that there are many opinions as to waxing over decals, using 303 protectant on decals and some say to use it on the entire body. Many, many different options but hard to find good info on this particular set up.

What do those of you who actually own an aluminum sided unit use and how is your decals holding up after several years?

I appreciate any help and guidance.

For last three TT both aluminum and fiberglass:

I have used this for wash:
Premium Gel-Gloss Wash and Wax - Gallon - T R Industries WW-128 - RV Cleaners - Camping World

and this for wax
https://www.amazon.com/Meguiars-Gene...SIN=B00HUBVF8I

No fading and easy to wipe off black streaks and bugs.

Thanks for the reply. I have used the Tech Wax in the past with good results on truck and SUV. Did you wax over the decals or handle them separately?
