Wildwood Lodge Gel-Coat maintenance

Folks,
I am still pateintly waiting on my 2010 392QBBS. I ordered the upgraded siding-Gel Coat. Any suggestions on protective coatings? The dealer is telling me regular Car Wax will suffice. If that is the case I would prefer the Turtle Wax ICE-synthetic wax. I have used this on my autos and found it to be a tremendous product. However, I have NO expereince with the Gel-Coat fiberglass. I am open for suggestions.

I just bought this stuff about three weeks ago and put a coat on my new Wildcat. It did a great job, goes on easy and comes off easy. Its made for gelcoat and fiberglass finishes marine and RV. Took me about 4 1/2 hours to do the entire 5er.
Here is the link:

I ordered the liquid and used about half a bottle to do the entire trailer. I bought the quart size bottle if I remember correctly.

Has anyone out there had problems with the gel coat cracking on thier RV? We have had ours a year and just as the warrenty ran out we found several cracks, looks like Forest River will repair them however, after reading more about gel coat this is a common thing to happen. It is very expensive to have repaired by a professional, has anyone done it themselves. I am sure this will happen again to my Silverback?
