I did my 34" Coachman on this past Sunday. It took 7 hours but turned out nice! I cheated and used ICE Synthetic Spray Wax.

I was all set to purchase an orbital buffer and attack the new RV. Called Pinnacle Wax and inquired what was their best product to wax a new, clean RV. They told me to use their XMT 360 Spray wax, and that it is a three step in one cleaner/sealer/wax.

I have some inbound, and hope that it does the trick. Spray on, distribute with a rag, let dry, wipe off. Almost sounds too easy, but their rep swears it will polish and protect the RV.

He did state that if i was a fanatic, I could apply a carnauba paste wax on top of the spray wax which also is carnauba based.

And what did you expect the rep to say?

I really expected them to tell me that I needed to purchase some other products to wash, clean, polish etc. before waxing.

What kind of UV sunblock did you put on your camper top?

DW & I did a wash on the Sanibel today as well. I got up on the roof for the first time. Wasn't as scary as I had expected. So far I like the Gel-Gloss result, but I know I'm going to have to do the wax job one of these days.

There were "mobil wash" guys selling their services at the campground where we were last Thursday. $2 per foot with a $75 minimum. Wash & wax was $4 I believe, so look at all the money you saved!

The front of the RV had a bad road tar spray from the TV wheels from some road we were on. I was going to ask here how to get it off, but then I thought "What would Turbs do!". I grabbed the can of WD-40 and it was gone in no time!

I also saw something called a "Towtector" that would probably have prevented that spray. Anyone using using one those?

Wash 'n' wax time is a great opportunity to inspect the caulking. I did (waxed) my last year and it took a good day, especially getting some road tar and other spots cleaned.

TTs look great when done. Inspired by the pics, thanks guys for posting.

NuFinish for boat, NuFinish for camper, as soon as it gets here. And yes, all by hand on the soon to be new 5er. Nothing like a good ole fashioned butt kickin and hey let's face it, you get to know your rig a little better.

After it's done, fire pit, ice on shoulder, and plenty of 12 ounce curls to deal with the pain.

Lookin' good! You can get ready outside now, no need for a mirror
