You can use any automotive polish like McGuires Cleaner Polish. Make sure the rig is clean and then just apply on with a soft damp cloth and buff off with a soft bath towel. You could also purchase a dual action buffer and apply the polish that way which makes the project go much faster. I use the buffer with the bath towel pinned under the pad to remove the polish which really saves your shoulders and time.

My favorite is Mother's Gold Carnuba wax. Follow the directions when you wax it and then make sure to follow that with another a few weeks later. Seems like a lot of work but the carnuba lets you use plain water to wash it off. Nothing sticks to it except the bugs that splat on the front cap!

I use a product called Wash Wax All. I buy it on Amazon and love it. It's a little expensive to get started because of buying all the applicators but well worth it. Takes about 45 minutes to do our whole 36RE as a result I do it about once a month and it looks great. www.washwax.com

I was told by RW not to use automotive wax on the rv. They said to use a good marine boat wax . A friend of mine has an older gel coat 5th wheel and he was using a automotive polish and wax and the wax turned the white gel coat yellow . we ended up using a wax stripper to remove the yellow wax and re-waxed with Maguire's marine/boat polish and wax looks great and has not yellowed since 2016. I use the same product on my rig along with a D/A polisher hope this is of some help to you.

That may be the case on unpainted gelcoat rvs, but the painted RWs are painted with automotive base coat/clear coat same as your car/truck, so any automotive polish/wax should not yellow or harm the finish.
The marine type won't hurt it, but an unnecessary expense.
I've used Turtle Wax Ice for the 6 years we've owned ours, inexpensive, easy to appply just spray & wipe & holds up nicely for the 6+ months til it's time again.

I use a product called "the solution". It is supposed to be a "dry wash" product but I use it when the rig is clean and it leaves a beautiful finish. A buddy of mine introduced me to it. After I had just finished cleaning up my truck, he came over and said "it looks pretty good" now feel how smooth it is where you just finished. Then he sprayed on "the solution" and wiped it off. "Now feel it again" he said, it was like polished glass. I have been using it on everything ever since. It is an internet purchase. Here is the link if anyone is interested: https://www.super-seal.com/the-solution
