We just put the first coat on our TT this weekend. Tried a product for the first time from Bio-Kleen, based near me in Kalamazoo, MI. From what I've read and heard, the owner is one of the principle chemists that formulated the well known 303 Protectant product.

Anyway--it was easy-on, easy-off. You may find it a bit pricey at $25-30, but I'll likely get two applications from the bottle.

Wow! You got a lot of answers and all of the waxes mentioned are good. We uses and sell FAST WAX manufactured in North Carolina and used by NASCAR. its easy to go on and come off and lasts all year. I'll start waxing my rig down in florida and people will come by and watch me. Most of them purchase cans of the wax after they see how easy it goes on and what a good job it does. In fact last year when I was waxing the motor home, a guy came by and bought it off me as it was my last can I had. He had started waxing his rig and ran out. It takes two cans to wax a large 5th wheel or moterhome.

I wax my 5th wheel starting with a soft cleaner/wax liquid. Be sure and use a soft cleaner. Work in a shady place and do not let the surface get warm. I follow up with Meguiars paste carnauba wax for clear coat finishes (the marine wax works really well). It takes a long time, but it really gives a great shine and good protection. I follow up with Meguiars detail from time to time and it cleans up the bugs from the front cap and dirt under the hitch.

Whatever u decide on, make sure it is for clear coat. The older waxes have abresives that will take the clear oat off.

This is come great information re: waxing Rvs... I have an 07 flagstaff 5er. It's in good shape and don't think it need a heavy duty waxing just yet. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a "spray-on" wax that would do a pretty good job of maintaining the finish. I'm no spring chicken and getting up and down ladders doesn't sound all that exciting to me any longer.
thanks
