I bought the thetford rv wax at camping world, it was not a bad price and comes in a gallon jug, you need a lot. Seems to work well. Takes off black streaks and helps to not get them as quick.

I'm a big fan of Rejex, but it's kind of pricey so I only use it on the nose. Bug splats rinse off with a hose.

I've used it on two trailers over ten years and haven't had any trouble with the decals.

Smile waxing RV

We've used Nufinish for years and loved it but found that it was hard to get of a decal if you happened to get it on.
First time I waxed we didn't know this and went right over them, bad mistake having said that our units always looked super and we also did them twice a year. Originally whole unit at 1 time now ooooh one side at a time, old age creeping up. Am going to try one of the other ones that are mentioned. If you know of one that will not dull and discolor the decals let me know as well.

Price is no issue when it's that good and I have to work so damn hard anyway, I like the best.

I've tried a lot of products like Nufinish, Meguiars and a host of other products. The best I have found is Blackfire Wet Diamond. Easy to apply and it lasts the longest of any of them.

I use Shurhold's ProPolish. It's a marine product, my 2013 Rockwood, 8315BSS looks like it did the day I bought it 4 years ago. ProPolish is easy to use, it's a polymer, so no white chalky residue when you wipe it off. I don't even use a power buffer because it wipes off so easy.

Just used this (actually 3 of them) to entirely refinish my badly faded/oxidized rig. Turned out MUCH better than expected. It looks better than new. Used a dual action buffer from harbor freight and about 10 pads. I will continue to use the #56 pure wax that was part of the kit. First pic of the RV cap is before doing anything. Second pic is after removing some of the vinyl graphics and re-finishing the right half of the cap.
