scratches on the RV

I took the rig west to Glacier, Yellowstone, and then the Grand canyon. On the way back I stopped in OK City and pulled too close to some trees. Some slight scratches near the top rear passenger side. What's the best way to remove them and what type of polish do I want to apply during general maintenance? Thanks for your advice.

We had a few of these "knowledge scratches" on our coach. When we got back to our home base I talked with a local business that does clean, waxing and buffing on site. The owner said he could probably get these out while he was washing/waxing our rig. WOW - got all of these out along with the wash/wax for $300. Thought it was a real deal.

Seriously, try tooth paste. It works great in shallow scratches on fiberglass.

Thanks Winder1, for that tooth paste tip. I'll give that a try on my next scratch. I would think a coat of wax on the area afterwards would be in order?
