Puma polish/wax

Hi,

What do Puma owners use to polish/wax their trailer? the ribbed exterior makes it tricky to work at.

I used Nu Finish and a soft cloth to apply and micro fibre cloths to buff out...working with the "ribbed edges" as you say, really not that bad. Nu Finish went on easily and gave a nice finish, but I felt that it didn't last long enough...next time I will switch product....but to answer your question with regards to the exterior surface...its does require a bit more elbow grease. Just dont try doing it all the same day...its a big job!

I use any named brand wax on a buffing wheel in the spring. Then rest of the year I just wash and dry with turtle wax wax and dry. Stuff works great.

Is that Turtle Wax Wash n Dry just a car wash soap you mix in the water?

Wash and dry is a soap but they also make a product called wax and dry. Spray it on a wet vehicle and dry with towel. Like a spray on wax but helps the drying process a lot.

I've never polished my last camper since it had the metal siding but I washed it with rolloff boat wash from marine store. Works amazing with one of those extended brushes. Awning is clean and black streaks are gone and it shines like new.

I have a Puma 30KFB (model year 2013, mfg date 05/30/2012). Lots of decals or appliques' all over the outside; does wax cause these to oxidize & fade?

Also, is the corrugated siding on these Pumas made of aluminum or is it vinyl? I think the front is aluminum. I can't tell for sure.

Was will not hurt the decals and the siding is aluminum.
