Question about washing / waxing a122

I am curious if there is any recommended cleaners to use on the fiberglass or if standard car wash soap would work fine on cleaning the camper?

Wal Mart sells one as well....probably a fraction of the cost of camping world. I've heard some people actually paste wax, but I'm too lazy for that.

Just don't wax the decals, I use 303 aerospace protectant on those as recommended on here and love it. I'm new here and this forum has helped me so so much.

I use Murphy Oil Soap, a very safe product. It will leave a water repelling finish, but not as lasting as some waxes. But I use it every time I wash my aframe.

Took me 7 hrs to wax mine with the following:

Amazon.com: 3M Scotchgard Marine Liquid Waby, 1-Liter: Automotive

I am pleased with the outcome :

Meguiar's has a wash and wax for cars that is yellow in color. I thought I'd try it when we get our camper. The 3-M stuff billto1 linked to, has caught my eye though.
Try and look for those things that are good for Fiberglass.
I've used a Meguiar's marine wax on my bikes, and am happy with it for them. The most important thing, is not to get behind on the clean and shine thing with fiberglass.
Sears has the wax applicators and buffers, that I've used before, that don't do what the heavier duty buffers do, but work well on keeping and maintaining a finish.

I started using the RV products from Wal Mart a few years back...black streak remover and RV wash/wax, and the rubber roof cleaner when we had our hybrid TT...and I've been happy with the results. I use the wash/wax every time, and I always get a good bead when it rains.

For those who have ever fought the good fight with mold/mildew on an awning or other gear, go directly to the store and buy a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. You'll be amazed at how well these things clean mold/mildew.
