Fiberglass wax..

Ok it's that time of the year, well for me anyway. My question is, what type of wax are you all using on your fiberglass? Also what are you all using to clean the roof? The reason I ask is that i'm just looking for other options. So tell us what you use, and how you go about your detailing.

I use protect all for everything except the roof. I haven't had to do the roof yet. The protect all is easy to put on and take off and seems to work for a while.

Where do you purchase protect all, and how is it applied? Thanks.

I got mine from camping world. It just sprays on and you use one towel to spread it and another towel to wipe off.

We have 2 Walmarts in our city. Only 1 of them has ProtectAll. And only in the 16 oz spray bottle. Camping world has the gallon size. Use the small microfiber towels. Spray a 2'x2' area, wipe in circular motion and wipe clean with a 2nd microfiber towel. I use it on everything; decals(wipe with the edges not accross), glass, plastic trim, metal ladder, tires, rims. It takes about 5 spray bottles for my 30' VLite.

It also takes a lot of Elbow Grease. You may want to have a party and invite some friends.

Use Nu Finish.... it's fairly easy on/off and does good job. Comes in both liquid & paste. Used it for years on cars, boats and now the TT.

Suggest use Nu Finish once a year and maybe a couple other times a year simply wash TT using liquid soap/wax car wash in a bucket of water with a long handle flat-sided mop.

The Timex approach (below) works good too... esp when washing AND waxing.... just don't forget the adult beverages!

Yep... NuFinish never a problem with the decals. Like to keep things SIMPLE!

My owners manual states to maintain the fiberglass sides like you would a car paint finish. Liquid car wash and any acceptable car wax. I personally use good ol' turtle wax paste.

Turtle Ice Liquid Wax. I've used NuFinish before, and had no complaints except for the overwax where it would dry cream color in the door or hood spacing. Switched to Turtle's premium liquid and use it on all cars and RV (we just bought the RV, so take my post with that knowledge).

Did the roof too, just as an added layer of protection.

I just washed the roof with regular car wash stuff - bought a bottle of RainX car wash that had some canuba wax in it. Got up on the roof with a hose, bucket of soapy water (RainX stuff), and my window washer with extended handle and just mopped that sucker.

We just bought ours, it's a 2009, but it went from looking pretty dark brown to now a nice off-white. Again, then I slathered on a whole bottle of wax just for some extra protection (we think we have a pin-hole leak at the antenae).

Good luck!

I use - 303 Aerospace Protectant on everything, fiberglass, windows, roof, decals, metal, all plastic, awning and vinyl. (Everything, lol.) Seems to work well, and is a UV protectant.
Used it on our old 17' Roo, and now on our new 8313 TT... The 303 is a little pricey, but a little goes a long way. Cheapest I found was the gallon jug on Amazon.com
Wow. That Roo was sure a lot shorter than the new one.
Good luck with it!

+1, been using it on the boat for years, still looks showroom new after spending 4 summers on the lake. May be a little pricey, but what's a few bucks if it saves hours of time for application?
