Wax?

I bought some Turtle Wax to wax the camper and I can see swirls on the side. I only did a small part. Is there a specific wax to use. Looks fine on the metal parts like the hood and doors but not on the side.

My dealer made me promise to never, ever use wax on any RV unless it has full body paint. So I use a product called Voom Gold. Spray on and wipe off. The dealer said that is what they use on all of their used inventory and that was good enough for me. So far so good.

I'm surprised there are not more takers on this subject. On a group last week, some were telling the advantages of using something called F11 which was $60 for 16 oz and it's doubtful that covers a coach. Then again, more people use this on cars and not big boxes with wheels. Lots of comments and when looking at over 200 reviews on a site, many like it but as many say it's overpriced for just a silicone spray.
I'm looking for something to use on a typical Thor product (2016 Hurricane) with light tan paint and decals that will keep it looking good. It's not oxidized and I'm looking on trying to keep it that way. Suggestions of things you've used that work????

I have a 2018 Thor Siesta with full body paint and used a product called Rejex with is a polymer and not a wax. I used it back in April just before went went on a 13 southern state trip from California to Florida. It made it much easier to get the dead bugs off once we returned home 5 weeks later. I bought it on line. Worked for me.

I tried this on my ACE front and around the sides to the front tires. So far it has been great. Just need to find the time to do the rest of the rig.

We had used REJEX for the first two years of our coach's life and was happy with the shine. However, this year the coach had oxidized so badly, top and sides, that I was almost ashamed of the looks of the coach...

We have just used Meguiar's M4916 Marine/RV Heavy Duty Oxidation Remover with a variable speed buffer with wool pads. This actually brought the shine back and restored some of the color. Then we used MEGUIAR'S M6332 Flagship Premium Marine Wax which really brought back the shine.

Nothing against REJEX, however I am hoping the M6332 helps to prevent the oxidation a little better...

We are EXTREMELY pleased with the shine and looks of our VEGAS now!

I saw a google on the 10 best RV waxes or polishes and saw they listed Turtle Wax Ice Spray Wax. It was in the top 5. Easy to put on and take off and not expensive. Thanks.

Aerospace 303 works great but as many higher priced products it has to be applied at minimum 90 day intervals

I use it for almost all my detail work and have used many of the supposed top 10 products
