Best RV wax for fiberglass?

I can only imagine the opinions I'll get on this one, but let 'em rip ! Just trying to get some ideas on the best wax for a fiberglass fiver and really how often should you do it? Have had aluminum campers in the past and they are pretty low maintenance if you wax them a couple times a year with the weather in our part of the country. Thanks for your time and opinions!!

I am and have always been a huge Meguiar's fan for my RVs, my boat and my cars. All of their products are awesome.

I have used Meguiar's NXT2.0 on my last two TT with excellent results. I like the fact that there is essentially no time limit to wipe it off after it dries. Dirt and bugs come off easily.

I’ve used a couple of different brands that were heavy on carnuba and really, all of them worked well. The difference was mostly in degree of work to apply and buff out. This last time on the mh I used Aero wash and wax and love how easy it was to apply and the results are great. I’ll never go back to a paste wax again as to us there was no contest on ease of application. It’s a pretty sure way to get a good look up close to the whole rv, that’s for sure.

Can't remember full process, but it is somewhat involved to clean the surface but the final application was wood floor wax, Lasted several years and still looked good when I traded.

I’ve used lots of products over the years. Mega is great but a carnuaba was only lasts a few weeks.

Try something synthetic. Collinite 845 is great. Or GTechniq makes a spray sealant.

I’m trying rejex this week. Used it before but never in the nose of a trailer. I’ll post back in results. I need something that prevents the bug stains!

I like Mguiers. Tried others. Mguiets is best. Call their 800 number and they will advise the best one to use for your application. They make many.

What I use

Since we have Fiberglass units I presume, The last coating you will ever need is this:Liquid Crystal Armour HD (LCA HD) is the finest marine grade SiO2 ceramic nano coating on the market today. LCA HD is a clear, glass coating that protects your vessel or RV surface from the harsh elements of Nature or the salt water environment. By leveraging the latest nano technology, LCA HD protects from harsh weather, chemicals, and UV rays while repelling water, stains, dirt and other contaminants.

LCA HD is the most concentrated version of the Liquid Crystal Armour ceramic coating line-up and is much less flexible and would be used in areas where only the absolute best is required and where longevity and performance is of the highest concern. This coating also carries the prestigious Boeing D-6 approval and is proudly manufactured in the U.S.A.

LCA HD gives an ultimate and premium hard coat (9H), a durable coating that is thicker viscosity 3-4 micron thick and gives a deep, reflective rich shine on gelcoat and paint.

Our newer formulation provides an increase in the open work time of up to 3-4 minutes, meaning you can coat larger areas prior to wipe down. https://www.marinenanoshop.com/store...RoC0DkQAvD_BwE

The Aero w/w is great, use it on my cars also.

Blackfire products are the best conventional type polishes I have found after years of trying just about everything. Just did my TT with their "one step" then followed that up with "wet diamond" (think the name has changed but easy to figure out). Last time I did the TT was almost 2 yrs ago, every year would be better. The less number of washes the better.

I use ProtectAll. I did some research before I bought my TT and this came highly recommended from several different places. It has worked extremely well for me.

At the FR International rally last year Todd Breden of Prime Time/FR had a seminar on taking care of your RV. He was described as an expert on finishes: painted, metal, fiberglass. He is also a car enthusiast and has show cars. He commented that his two favorite brands of wax are Mothers and Meguiar's. Of the two, Meguiar's was the best bang for the buck. He recommended polymer waxes over carnuba. Said the synthetic polymers get into the fiberglass pores better and with a lot less work. Recommendation was to wax the rig once or twice a year - depending on how well the finish was holding up.
In between full wax jobs, I've had good results with both the Meguiar's Ultimate Waterless Wash & Wax and Aero Wash / Wax all. Both use polymer based waxes. Aero costs less but in a test I ran Meguiar's did a marginally better job of cleaning (seemed to get off more dirt).
