Exterior maintenance question - 831RKSS

Wife and I just bought our first TT, a 2011, Flagstaff 831RKSS. Took it out a few weeks ago for our first trip and loved it!!! TT is great and everything worked perfectly.

My question is what products to use to maintain the outside of the trailer? It will be parked in my driveway and we get very hot, dry, summers here in SoCal.

It's the Signature Ultra-Lite with the Lamilux, gel coat exterior and plastic or fiberglass front cap.

I understand a lot of people use Aerospace 3000 on the decals, so I bought a gallon of that.

Any ideas or suggestions, including products and frequency would be appreciated.

Just going through this myself. Get yourself an orbital buffer. After a thorough cleaning I am applying a coat of Nufinish. Lots of work but one side looks like glass now. The other side is about half done so far.

We use the Porter Cable 7424XP, Amazon.com: Porter-Cable 7424XP 6-Inch Variable-Speed Polisher: Home Improvement and Meguiar's Marine wax, Amazon.com: Meguiar's M6332 Flagship Premium Marine Wax - 32 oz.: Automotive.

Very happy with both purchases, this polisher is pretty much the industry standard. Most detail shops use it or the Griot's Garage polisher. Since we have three vehicles plus our 831RKSS, I could easily justify spending the money on the Porter Cable. Between the Excursion and TT, we have enough paint real estate to justify it alone. I use the polisher and my wife comes behind me to wipe the wax off. Doesn't take long at all and leaves excellent shine and protection.
