Let me preface by saying I do not nor do I ever plan to wax my coach. I take meticulous care but I am just not doing it. Typically I use Rain ex wash with wax beads all in one. It does an OK job, but is there a better one step product out there? My unit is white gel coat with vinyl decals.

There are several similar products out there by Blue Coral, Turtle Wax, and others. They are all basically a water soluble wax and will work fine for most all painted and gel surfaces. As long as it is used on a somewhat regular basis(every 4-6 months), you should not need anything else.

I think I have the easiest way. I drive it down to Yuma, Az. and they will wash and wax the coach and the car for $110.00. Worth every penny.

Where do you get it done? Or if they come to the RV park, whom do you call?

I use the Turtle wax Wash 'n Wax. It always leaves a nice shine.

My wife bought a Wash/Wax product at the 99 cent store a few years back. It worked great and lasted a long time. Haven't seen it since.

I typically the Mequires product with the little carnuba wax beads. Not sure if it works any better than others but it's a good looking product with all those beads in suspension and an attractive label. Add in a little more expensive so it must be good, right?

I use two product and alternate them each time I wash the rv. Turtle Wax Wash & Wax contains carnauba wax and you just spray it on as you dry the coach. Lucas Slick Mist sprays on as you dry and also gives a great shine. It is probably my imagination, but the combination gives a deep shine and a mirror finish. I also use it on the cars and they look great.
