Need Good Cleaner & Wax for Crusader

Ok so trying to find a good RV Wash and Wax for my Crusader with Fiberglass exterior.

I am also looking to find out if anyone knows anything that will take the black spots out of the clear Caulk around my RV, trying to clean it and keep it clean but these spots are annoying and I don't want to clear it and re-caulk it.

I really like the Meguiar's Flagship Premium Cleaner/Wax. Available via Amazon or Meguiar's directly.

I have been using meguir's marine / rv cleaner /wax. I just found out that they also make a flagship version of this as listed by jtaylor1920. to jtaylor1920, is the flagship version worth the extra cost? (i'm assuming it would be more than the regular). how do you like it?

I really like it. It goes on and comes off easy. It did a great job of getting a variety of marks off the trailer, like caulking splatter and some road grime. I've used it on the cars too when I've had a few issues.

I assume it is ok to use Car wash liquid on Fiberglass to wash the RV but then I will use Meguires Marine Wax to shine it up?

A little input from a south Florida guy,,,,,, Carnauba waxes break down FAST in the sun. I've learned that from experience. A friend bought a BMW M5, and the guy who delivered it to him told him to use Starbrite Premium Marine Polish on it, as it's a synthetic wax of sorts. I had been using all of the waxes mentioned here and NONE of them hold up. I could get two months at best before I could tell the wax was gone. I've been using the Starbrite on my truck, car, and TT, and the results have been great. I can now go 4 to 6 months between waxes. Also, it's safe for graphics, has UV inhibiters, and can be applied in direct sunlight. Downside - it's tough to work with. First application will leave some streaking. Second application the problem is gone. It is hard to polish off....... but the results are worth it, at least for me.

I have used RV Gel Gloss wash and wax as a cleaner on may last two TT. I use NXT Generation® Tech Wax® 2.0 - Liquid for wax. it is a polymer and lasts very well as well as going on and off very easy. You can apply to the whole RV today and remove it tomorrow and it wipes off like dust, yet if makes cleaning black streaks and bugs easy. Several friends use same combo on their Corvettes.

Tried the others. Current favorite is Colonite Fleet wax. Originally developed for the aircraft industry. Easy to work with and leaves a good shine that lasts for months.

I think OP is looking for a wash and wax product, not just a wax. Meguiar's makes a "Marine Flagship Wash-N-Wax". I have been using "Captain Phab RV Wash & Shine" but it's a very regional product likely not available in the U.S. Wash and wax products seem to work fine between proper waxing and polishing jobs.

Actually wondering if I use wash and wax to clean it is the Meguires good for wax, I want to keep the decals in good condition as this unit is a 2013 and already have to replace the Crusader Decal in the front cap from cracking

A lot of people like Meguiar's marine wax products. Lots use 303 Aerospace Protectant for protecting their decals.
