Wax

What type of wax do you use to wax your unit?

I use a marine past wax for gelcoat but you can only do a small section at a time because as it hardens it is harder to remove, but I like the finish afterwards so to me worth the work.

Hi I use Meguiars Flagship Marine Wax M6332 goes on easy and wipes off easy. This wax has high UV protection and made to protect fiberglass. I applied wax with a random orbit wax applicator and wiped it off with a towel. They had a seminar on waxes at the Goshen international Frog rally last year. This is the product he recommended we use to protect the surface of our RV's

Hope This Helps Tim

I use 303 on my decals..NOT wax.
It can be used on the entire TT but I tend to have trouble with streaks. A good fiberglass wax from "The Chemical Guys" or McGuires marine seem to work good for me.

Same here with 303...great for decals as it won't dry them out like wax does, but like bob213 said...it's too streaky on the gelcoat. They say if its streaky that means you are using too much, and that less is better with 303. So, I tried using it very sparingly, and the streaking is still there, so I just use it on decals now and use McGuire's Marine wax on the rest. Very happy with the McGuires.

Either or.....I wax first, being careful to keep wax off decals, then do decals with 303.
