Best wax to use

Our unit is made of fiberglass panels, but the dealer said to use any type of good car wax. I am wondering if it would be better to use a wax specifically designed for fiberglass. What do you guys think?

I've been using Nu-finish on the front and rear caps which see all the bugs and flipped up road tar and Bass Boat Saver on the sides of our rig.
