Waxing your Redwood

Any wax recommendations for our Full Body Paint Redwood?

I especially like to keep the front cap waxed so the bugs and such clean off easier.

McGuires? That's probably what I will use.

Don't use a regular auto wax until your paint is about 4-5 months old. If you do, you'll seal the clear coat and this will prevent the paint from breathing. You'll end up with a dull finish that can't be undone.

All the paint shops use a product made by "Presto" called "Fast Wax". This stuff goes on easy and does a great job. You can also use it in the hot sun.

Look it up on the internet or buy it at any auto paint supply store but it's about 1/2 price on the internet.

There are a couple of guys here where we are workcamping with beautiful class A's who swear by WashWax All, a dry wash/wax product. They say you apply this stuff to a relatively clean surface[ they use it for their rig and toad vehicles, you just spray it on and wipe it off with a microfiber cloth.

Anyone here know anything about it, used it?

I do use a product like that but it works best when the Rv isn't very dirty

Use WasWaxAll frequently. Was originally developed for aircraft. Works like a champ and doesn't build up. The more you apply it the better the results.
You can get it at most pilot shops or aviation supply by the quart or gallon.

On our last gel-coat 5th Wheel I used Rejex, great product, not sure if it is good for painted surface.

I like Colinite Insulator wax on the caps and front of my truck camper.

Sigh, about to do this in the coming week. Worked on getting the bugs off the nose on Sunday. Not looking forward to washing everything followed by the spray wax others have mentioned...

I'm telling ya

be lazy like me and go by a blue beacon truck wash - have been using them for the last 3 rv's and always good results...

even after our trip to the low country around Savannah where we killed a gazillion bugs on the way back - it came out fine...
