Trailer Wax

Greetings to all-
I have a 2013 Palomino Ultra Lite-30ft. == with high gloss sides.
I'm wondering what would be a good wax-that is long lasting to use on my rig.
I like to apply with an orbital buffer-and rub out with towels.
All thoughts are appreciated.
Thanks-The Boss

I used Meguires Flagship Premium Marine Wax on mine, the surface is actually slick to the touch now. I applied mine by hand but I don't see why you couldn't buff it in. It wiped off really easy.

I also vote for the Meguires Flagship Premium Marine Wax. I put mine on with an orbital polisher and off by hand. Been 4 months and still shines and beads up like I just did it. Amazon has good price on qt. bottle. Goes pretty far.

Check out Collinite Insulator Wax. It's made in Utica, NY but they ship everywhere. It goes on easy, comes off with not much elbow grease and lasts for a long time. One bottle took care of my 35 foot Windjammer.

I was surprised by how far it went. I hit all four sides and only used 2/3 of a quart bottle.

I don't think I even used half a qt. Covered every inch and WOW what a difference.

I use the turtle spray wax it may not last as long but the ease of application make the job much easier to do and that way it doesn't bother me doing it once a year.

Meguiars Boat/RV Pure Wax #56. I apply with a 12" very very slow polisher. It runs about the speed of my circular hand application. I'm a big fan of anything Meguiars. http://www.meguiars.com/en/marine/pr...atrv-pure-wax/

Same here, Meguiars fan. Use it on all the vehicles. Can't go wrong with any of their stuff.

meguires #21 sealer works great, lasts a long time, just be sure to put on a clean surface(no cleaners in it), or you will have your black streaks under your sealer. I use 3m very mild cleaner glaze on all the black streaks etc that not come out with washing.

Heard that Carnauba Wax harms decals, if so go around them.

glad our recommendation worked out for you. I waxed mine in the beginning of April and it's still beading up like I just did it. Doesn't hardly get dirty other than bugs on front and little road grime along the bottom.
