RV wash and orbital wax...Ace 29g 2023

Hired a detailer for RVs to do a wash and orbital wax tomorrow. Unit is fiberglass with swirl decals, not full body paint.

Has anyone done this service and how was the result?

I wash and wax my own RV. Takes me a full weekend and the results are fantastic. The best part is I get to inspect the coach and can address any issues I find in the process.

Every Spring we start a new thread some of us have been waxing our own for few years. You can search to find the other threads but this is last year's

https://www.thorforums.com/forums/f8...ere-33957.html

I am curious to know how much you will pay to have waxed?

It takes me about 5 days, but I never work more than an hour at one time. Somebody has to go back in the house to verify the fridge is still keeping the beer cold. My wife makes me taste test a full can for assurances, it has been a sacrifice I have made since we got married

Wash and Orbital Wax

Hotties Detailing did an excellent job today with wash to include roof, orbital wax and wheels for 320.00. Looks like showroom again.

I use bug and tar remover on the front then a wash/wax concentrate in my foam cannon from the jungle site. I clean the windows and shine the chrome.
I do it after every trip and my coach looks just fine sitting in a campground. Actually it looks better than most as it seems a lot of RV users hardly do anything to maintain the exterior.

I also do my ace 29.3. I get a lot of oxidation so I start with removing the oxidation with meguires oxidation remover, then itís polishing with stabright RV polish and follow with a coat of meguires RV/marine wax.
Good for the year!

I did it last year, right was fading.
They used a pressure washer with boat fiberglass wash and then a marine fiberglass wax.
Came great.

Took pictures of what he used so I can do it this year.

My guy inNC charges $120 to wash. $280 to wash & wax using orbital polisher. I will not turn anyone loose with a real buffer on anything I own.
