Try Collinite. Made in Utica, NY. They make an Insulator Wax that is a liquid. Goes on real easy and comes off easy as well. The shine is incredible, and it lasts!!!

Just make sure you put a VERY thin coat on. The thicker the coat, very difficult to get off.

What do you guys do with your graphics (decals)? I read that the wax is not good for them?

I use mequiars ultimate spray on wax. Spray on, quick wipe off. Goes on and off easy. Get my 30 ft tt waxed in approx 1 hr (less if 2 of us do it). I only recently heard about getting wax on graphics being a bad thing. We have always waxed our graphics with no issue. That said, I have heard others mention using 303 aerospace protectant on them with good results.

Most of the major wax manufacturers clearly state you can wax over decals so long as they are "shiny." Flat decals will show streaks so it is not advised. Also, don't use a very abrasive wax that could scratch the decal(s).

I personally, have been waxing over my automotive decals for what seems to be ever; at least 40 years and have never had a problem.

About 15 years ago, I switched to Zaino for polishing vehicles and it also works quite well.

I have never waxed my popup trailer, so I am assuming the decals are the same type as used on automotive vehicles. But I guess I cannot say for sure.

There is another faction that states applying polish/wax over decals will destroy them. Never seen any empirical evidence to suggest that is true, then again, I have no empirical evidence that what I say is true either. So I guess it comes down to those who have done it and had no problems, and those who say there will be a problem.

I'm sure products like 303 are also very safe; but, how does one apply that product ONLY to the decals and not onto the rest of the trailer (or automotive vehicle)?

That's all I have to say on the subject.

I used a 3M wax a couple of weeks ago and it went well. The graphics seem to be good with it Thanks.

Been using 303 for years on dashboards and other plastics exposed to the sun, just never to "wax" the vehicle. After reading this I tried it all over my camper, especially the decals. As long as I didn't put it on too heavy it went really well. Seems to bead water like wax. I'll see how it holds up.

I have used Collinetes wax cleaner and polisher on my boats for years and the stuff always removes the grey/black streaking and spider crap well. It also shines up very nicely. Does anyone use this on their gelcoat for RVs?
Picking up my new 8282ws in 2 weeks and will want to clean it eventually.

thanks

Collinite is the way to go. Their Insulator Wax works great.
