I used Turtle Wax when I did mine last month. You can use most automotive waxes I also use 3M spray wax every so often to help block UV rays on the paint.

I would recommend using paint dealer. It goes on and off like wax, however, will last 6 to 12 months. My caps last approx 6 months and my side's last approx 12 months. I would recommend "Auto Brite". Look on line, it is a polymer.

I also use a premium Polymer Sealer. Once a year for me but I am stored inside. I washed my Redwood last weekend by just using car wash sprayer, no brushes and spot free rinse. Still comes out shiny and new!

I use Meguires Ultimate paste wax. Easy wax on, wax off but I think any auto wax will do.

McGuires #50 Boat and RV polish. Apply with a dual action buffer and wipe off with a clean bath towel. I do my unit quarterly windows and all.

I was told by Jeff at the RW plant to only use a good boat and RV wax not to use car wax. I have heard this from other rv manufactures so I use Maguires # 56 wax and I think its #45 polish. I use a DA polisher with the 5" pads.

Why not auto wax? It's auto paint! I've heard not to use on the decals on unpainted rvs, but there's no decals on mine.
Been using several different Turtle Wax products on mine for the last 5 years & so far so good.

you shouldn't use a fiberglass boat and RV wax on a full body paint. The paint is automotive paint.

I use Presta Fast Wax. It is a water based wax and allows the clear coat to breathe. We recently had our front cap repainted and had the high end clear coat applied (7-8 coats) shines like a mirror and the body shop folks specifically stated to use Presta Fast Wax (on line purchase about $35 a quart). I had used this wax before was extremely pleased with the results. Easy to apply and remove and lasts 90 - 120 days in Florida weather (we live within 800 yards of the intercoastal water way and the Atlantic ocean and store our unit 3 miles from our home).

As mentioned it's automotive paint, same as any of your vehicles, so wash & wax the same as you do those.

I use a product called the Solution. We have a full body paint 36RL. This product is considered a "Dry Wash". You just spray it on and wipe it off then follow up with a dry microfiber towel. It leaves no white residue and makes the finish shine and feel exceptionally smooth. The Solution | Best waterless car wash | Super Seal Specialty Company Everyone that I have introduced to it have raved about it.
