Washing and waxing

We have owned our 243RBS for almost a month now and are scheduled for its first trip a week from this Sunday. The trailer has been sitting on the pad I built and has collected all of the tree pollen that we get this time of year. I am wondering what you people use for soap and wax on your fiberglass trailers ? I have used Dupont No. 7 soap for many years on all of my cars and trucks and have always been happy with it. I even use it on the vinyl siding on the house. I would like the trailer to be nice and clean for its first trip and give it a coat of wax in the near future also. Thanks for your input, Boomer.

Good car wash soap.
Wax? Many like McGuires RV/Marine in the blue bottles. I really like Collinite Fleet Wax.

Any car wash product will be fine to wash the trailer...i like:
https://www.griotsgarage.com/product...fType=&from=fn

...just get an extendable wash stick like this:

To wax, just use a spray & wipe product like this:

...or this for a one-step solution:
