Ask ten people and get ten different answers!

I used the NuFinish for years on all my vehicles and tt's. It's not a wax, but rather a sealant that can be applied in direct sunlight. Easy on and easy off. Last just as long as any other.

However, this summer I've used Protect-All. It's good for any surface, fiberglass, paint, metal, glass, wood, rubber, etc....
It's really easy to apply. I did my 34' tt in less than an hour. It really does a nice job. It's good for 3 to 6 months, but since it's so easy to apply that's not a big deal. I'll probably continue to use it.

Protect-All makes many different products for cleaning and maintaining your RV and I have also used their rubber roof treatment. It's also very easy to apply and made the roof look new.

Anything they use on fiberglass boats. When you think about it boats see much more abuse.

turtle wax ice. No white crappy residue anywhere, can cover everything. Makes all the plastic on vehicles look brand new!

I use Turtle Wax express shine. I have an excellent shine with this. Works great. Gives a nice smooth finish.

Does that turtle wax ice work real good? A friend of mine recommend that but I haven't got none yet.

Nufinish...liquid form.. easy application polish, not wax, that requires about 2 applications a year and provides great protection against wind ,rain, road grime, tree sap, bbq sauce, etc.

Hey grhodes50,

How many arms do you have? Took me about 6 hours to do my 35' VLite with 3.5 bottles of Protect All. Of course, I did everything: windows, skirting, tires, ladder, tongue(not mine but the trailer). I used a microfiber towel to apply then used a dry microfiber towel to dry and finally another dry one to buff till shine. Did it the first of August so it should last a while since I keep the buggy indoors.
