Ditto on what Glenn said about being careful with the polisher. In the past I've used a slow 10" random orbital polisher, similar to this one with carnuba wax. 10 inch Random Orbital Polisher | eBay

I was also introduced to a Lucas product earlier this summer that I'm really impressed with. It is Lucas Slick Mist Speed Wax. It's a polymer spray that is "safe on decals", windows and chrome!!! It also made the bugs come right off. You can also apply it right after washing and wax as you dry the RV. Just mist it all over and dry as usual with a chamois. If your RV is fading, you are probably still gonna have to use the old products and elbow grease. But. I'd say if your finish is in good shape, this Lucas product will be all you need. Just my opinion. I also used it most of the summer every time I dried the boat down and it is pretty impressive. And it's made in America! Slick Mist Speed Wax

LOL YUP oops-thread jack :-) but maybe not, everyone is thinking to next season.

It's an Army Corps site in Potosi, WI.

A 25-30 minute drive from that edge of Dubuque-most sites are cement pads, level and laid out nice.

Just make sure you get sites closer to the river-the train can be loud, but you get used to it.

Hah I usually camp at least once at the end of season in the 20s' and teens-does that count?

I consume a lot of firewood on that last trip. :-)

I was worried about that, too...but the buffer has a soft 2-inch thick foam pad and I lay another soft cotton pad over it to apply the wax. Since it's so big, it seems to be even more gentle than hand-waxing and I had to press in a bit when waxing the front of the car to get the dried bugs off.
