it was more for the oxidation removal - not the buy a new rv tip
For an owner of an RV place I found the facial expressions kind of out of the norm if that makes sense

Sherdep,
I would suggest using Collinites Fleet Wax...it is a superb boat wax. I use maguiers too, but the Collinites holds up quite well on the boat. If you need to first apply a cleaner wax and 3M makes a good marine cleaner wax which has a touch of rubbing compound to remove light oxidation..then apply the Collinites...but if you really want a great shine use a very light rubbing compound then wax it after it has been polished.

Unlike a boat, well I suspect unlike a boat, the skin on the TT is much thinner and applying too much pressure or force with a buffer and rubbing compound can lead to trouble quickly and you could really damage the finish.

I use FW1 waterless cleaner/wax. Great product. I use twice a season and it removes black streak, restores shine to faded decals. Use on metal, glass , fiberglass, and other services.Little expensive but 1 can does my 31' twice including the TV.http://www.fw1shine.com

Sherdep,
Most boat supply places carry it. I buy it from West Marine. There is a paste form and liquid. I use the liquid.

Sherdep, while there pick up a huge gallon size. 303 protectant for the roof too. 303 is an outstanding UV blocker...good for the roof.

Bigred,
Is bioclean suggested for marine use, as in boat seats, bolsters and other vinyl on the boat? If so, I will give it a try. I am generally lazy and if I can find a product that I can cross detail the boat and TT, I go with it. Since I live in a rural area, I have to either order my stuff online or when I am at the coast, stock up at West Marine. They have decent prices and a good rewards card program where I save some money.

You know boat stands for break out another thousand...sometimes I think the RV is like that..lol

One of the best auto and RV wax on the market is FAST WAX. You can find it on a couple of web pages or send me a email, I carry it as a distributer. Its made in North Carolina for NASCAR. One wax job a year and your RV will shine. we had the same finish on our Montana and it worked great. its easy to go on and come off. I can do our motor home in 4 hours.
