Camping World has a cleaner and protector for the roof with UV. As for the wax, really any wax will work, I have been putting on Turtle Wax Paste for the last 4 years still looks like new. Spay the decals with #303 protectant. I don't think it any better then the wax for that, but a lot of people swear by it. I use it on my tires only and they still look new as the day I put them on.....Congrats on your unit...

Someone on the forum last year suggested Scotchgard Marine Wax from their boating experience, so I bought some and it is good stuff, goes on very easy and comes off easy and lasts. It is a little pricey.

I use Maguiers NXT . It is not inexpensive, but goes on easily, wipes off even easier and makes removal of bugs and dirt easy. It is a polymer and not a wax product so it does a better job of protecting ( MHO)

Has anyone with a 2011 sabre BHOK had trouble with the large storage door under master bed slide have trouble with the shocks holding the door up to high so when you pull the slide in it the door hits the molding on the slide?

Came home from 3 nights of camping. Repaired the heat deflector on the RVQ, the spot welds broke (rotted away actually). Cleaned the BBQ and will do a test run tomorrow night when the rain stops, going to be 32 tonight! Brrr.
