Washing an RV is a lot like work...

Sorry I'm late replying to this post, but my nephew told me about this Protect All - All Purpose cleaner/wax and it's amazing. Don't bother scrubbing, just wash and dry. Once that's done, just use this Protect All.....it's amazing, takes off left over dirt, bugs black streaks no problem.
The only thing, it's mostly available in the states, but I have found some RV dealers here in Canada.

Used this old thread to provide input I read on other numerous threads about washing and waxing the RV. I used Dawn soap to get rid of several weeks of Interstate grime and dirt and that worked well. Tried Scrubbing Bubbles to remove the old black streaks and that worked just fair. I used NuFinish as a wax coat and with a little (well maybe a lot) of elbow grease, the black streaks just disappeared. Could only do a couple of hours at a time as I ran out of elbow grease after that. It rained after my wax job and the start of new black streaks wiped off easily. Thanks to all the posts to help me out.

I use the Worx Power Washer on my rig. It is a power washer, NOT a pressure washer. It is rated at 850 psi and is completely portable. It works off a rechargeable 20v battery. Go to their website and watch the video. I do not work for them or receive any financial gain from them. It is just a great product.

We use BioKleen Black Streak Remover. I use the brush method, as described in their video. Works great and as fast as I would think anything else is. Then we wax with Lucas Slick Mist. Great wax applies easy.

X3 on Protect All. Used in aviation for years.. A little goes along way, but tends to leave a haze for those with full body paint.. its ok on paint, rubber and glass.

If you use it on your roof you just created a skating rink...

Simple Green is great to strip wax/degrease, I use it first. Follow up with Blackfire Paint Sealant. Easy to apply and longest lasting I have found. The less you wash the longer it lasts and use a wash liquid that won't remove polish. Blackfire also makes a one step cleaner/polish Total Polish and Seal and One Step. These are expensive but great products. I've tried most out there like NuFinish, Meguiars, etc. and found these to be the best.
