Which brand polish do you use

I have read various product reviews for various polishes for the RV exterior fiberglass/gel-coat advising to use Meguiar'sģ Marine/RV High Gloss Polish; auto-motive NuFinish; and/or Turtle Wax Ice Spray polish.

What are your best recommendations for use on keeping a glossy shine on the RV?

I use the Meguiars and am happy with it.. it's the first product I tried though. I did quite a bit of research and have always liked their products.

Do you really mean polish or are you looking for wax recommendations?

Polishes contain a light amount of abrasive to take off light oxidation. I would hesitate to use a polish or rubbing compound (coarser abrasive) unless really needed.

With that said, I use Meguiar's 50 Marine/RV One Step Cleaner Wax. It says it non-abrasive. Leaves my trailer nice and shiny, whether applied by hand or with a buffer.

I suspect you may be using the word "polishing" a bit incorrectly and simply wish to make your RV shinny and protected from the elements.

That being the case, I lean heavily to something EASY to use...especially on something as big as an RV. One step "Wash and Wax" products will do this for you. There are many on the market. I use a lot of Adams Polishes products on my vehicles and have had good results with their Wash n Wax... https://adamspolishes.com/shop/exter...-wax-16oz.html

I am also a Nu Finish fan. I used it on the low gloss Rockwood plastic rolled panel at the back. Cleaned it up nicely.
I also use it on my High Gloss SOB and it works very well.

For polish, I like Wizard's Shine Master. Been using it on our Avanti since it was repainted about 8 years ago.

Do you know if Nu Finish can go over a polished or waxed surface? I removed some oxidation from a clear coat with McGuire's 67 One Step Compund, but want to follow up with something simple to keep the shine.

I'm sold on Meguiars flagship premium marine wax. Spendy stuff, but can get about 2 1/2 waxings from 16 oz on a 25 ' camper. Note: this is on new skin as a uv protectant. Suppose you could use it after some fade or dullness treatment.

We use Rejex for motor home and truck. Last about a year. Also use the wash that you can purchase from Rejex for minimal spotting.

Great cleaner wax

I have to weigh in on this one. Probably all of the answers are good ones. However, for the price, I donít think you can beat carnuba wax for cleaning and protection. Their are a couple of brands but since Johnsonís Kit wax disappeared I have been using the attached from Amazon with Great success and at a low price. Easy to work with. Do 1 side at a time, your results will be better than trying to do your whole unit at once

RVs are a lot of square feet to "wax on - wax Off". Keep it simple...spray on, clean, wipe off and wax is the way I go. Aero Cosmetics Wet or Waterless Car Wash Wax was recommended from an ole timer. Been using it for years, often. EZ PZ....almost therapeutic. lol

x 100.... It literally doesn't get any easier. I did my 30 foot trailer at a state park and did not use water!

I use Gel Gloss cleaner and polish. Works great with black streak while polishing and leaves shiny wax finish.

I use Mother's carnuba or when available Mother's synthetic car wax about twice per year.


For "tweenie" shinnings, I use marine spray wax. Easy wipe on wipe off but doesn't last as long.
