Question Waxing

Hello: I was looking for a good Wax product to use on my Flagstaff 5er. The one that got great ratings was "Protect All" Went and got a bottle and started to appy it, It seems that it works really well on the surface of the trailer, but when I put it on the Decals, it takes a lot of the color off. I'm wondering if Oxidation plays a part. I washed the trailer and dried it before using the wax. Not sure what to do about the decals. Should I try using another product before Protect All, such as Turtle Wax on the decals to try and get the Oxidation off first? The trailer is an 07 and because it sits outside in storage, through the years the decals have faded and I have replaced some of them with EOM decals from Forest River.
Any ideas on the subject?

I've been using Meguiars Gold Class car wash gel on the TT. Black streaks and dirt wipe off with a finger tip.

FYI, a lot of waxes have carnuba and other products that can damage vinyl decals. We had decorative vinyl stripes on the ambulances where I worked and we would have to wax around them to prevent them from cracking and fading.

303 here also. I bought a gallon jug of the stuff. Use it on the roof to seal it and all rubber, plastic and decals. For the main body I use a good quality car wash and a spray and wipe wax. Works really well.

Recognize there are a couple of 303 products. Be certain to get the right one for the right job. One works on EPDM, the other is for fabric like a jacket/sunbrella (tm).

I use the 303 on my roof, have for years, Starbrite Teflon on the sides, and 303 on the decals. The fabric 303 goes on my foul weather clothing, jackets and like.

Couldn't say whether one was is better than the other.
