Best wax for my new 5th wheel

I heard that you should use a fiberglass wax, then some say just use regular car wax, I want to take good care of my investment.. also is the front cap made of different material which might require another wax?

Here is what found from Meguiar's. One step cleaner and wax Number-50Marine-RV. It is designed for use on fiberglass and gelcoat. Put it on my 5'er took 4 1/2 hours but it worked very well.

I have used Eagle One Nano Wax it goes on easy and wipes off easy and leaves a real nice shine and slick feeling it is safe to use on decals ,glass and plastic fronts so i just spray and wipe till i cant stand it anymore and to remove black streaks i use greased lighting orange cleaner deluted ,spray on use scrub brush and rinse really good

Not to hijack the thread, but along the same line.... When we get ready to leave, I take a spray bottle and fill it with a 50/50 solution of water and baby oil (yeah, the Johnson and Johnson stuff!). Spray it on and just let it dry. When ya get where you're going, the bugs wipe right off. And as far as I can tell, it never affected my wax.

I use Nu Finish. It's not a wax, but a sealant. Easy on/off and can be applied in direct sunlight. I've used it for years on all my vehicles.

We use Fast Wax a wash and wax product made in North Carolina and used by NASCAR. Its a spray on wax that is easy to use and come off and last over a year on the coach. Normally it takes two cans to do a motor home or large 5th wheel. Were distributers for it.

I have a 2010 Flagstaff 32 Ft Super lite Bumper Pull. Just purchased this in March 2010. It comes with Surround Sound System and I was told the Docking Station was for iPod. Well I bought a Apple iPod and I find out that the docking station won't fir my iPod Nano. Checked with Best Buy and they don't know!! The Radio is a ZX700 DVD/CD/MP3/AM/FM/Weather Band. Does any Know where I might get this Apple Nano Docking Station????

Thanks;
Steve
