What is the best RV wax to use?

What is the RV way you use for your RV with clear coat and decals? Do you use an orbital buffer to polish with and if so what are the suggestions to using this? So far I have heard good products to be 3M marine wax and Protect All. Protect all is a liquid wax, but does not last long and therefore I normally have to wax 3 times a year. An orbital polisher is not required with this liquid wax.

I haven't found anything better than Meguiar's products. When necessary I use their Swirl Remover 2.0 to get rid of swirls, and then NXT Generation Tech Paste Wax 2.0. Each one is applied with an random orbital waxer on the flat panels for an evenly applied coat that can't be achieved by hand. Have been searching on the internet and I found one great review about best RV wax for fiberglass that you should take a look

    Meguiar is a good choice when it comes to RV wax for fiberglass. I've tested several wax brands and now I only use Meguiar's products for my RV

SOURCE: Peeling clear coat on black 1999 toyota corolla.

Well it is a common problem with Toyota paint jobs. Unfortunatly a simple wax wont stop this from continuing all though it will hide it from site for a while. The problem has to do with the factory paint job, so a repaint (by Maco or any other botom dollar body shop) will only be a band-aid fix, and will most likely rear it's ugly head somewhere down the line. If you intend to sell the car this may be a way to make it look sharp and easier to sell. **** if you intend to keep it I would not sugest it as you will most definatly be dissapointed as a repaint is only a temporary fix for this issue.

To thoroughly fix this issue you would need to have the car professionally stripped (at least down to the collor coat) and repainted. This will be expensive, and most likely will cost more than it is worth for a car that old. I would start by checking to see if there was a factory recall on the paint for that year, make, and model.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: have a week old car, need to know what type of wax

Don't use ANY polish. If the car is only a week old, the paint is new. Wash it with COLD water only for the first 6 months. DON"T use a carwash. The pressure will ruin the finish. If you have clearcoat, most cars do, use an acrylic wax made for clearcoats.

How to make your car shine like new again.


Todays car uses a polyurehtane type finishes. Some would have that shiny clear coat on top of the flat color or mixed with color already. Over the years sun would dull away that shiny clear coating making the car look faded out and some sever cases the clear coat is already gone. On most cases an electric buffer and some polishing compound is all that is need to restore the car like new. On severe cases a fine sand paper of 1000 grit or more is needed to sand away the roughness then followed by buffing. If the clear coat is gone completely, you can spray only the bad area with fresh clear coat then buffed after wtih polishing compound after drying completely. Unless you have the knack for spray painting you should not try it. Getting a good result require skills and practice. Besides I do not really recommend spray cans since there are no adjustment you can do except in the way you spray the paint. If you decide to paint it anyways the rule of thumb is do not disturb any part that do not need to be painted and always cover surrounding area with a newspaper using masking tape. Do not rush on the job, and take your time. The technic in spray painting is get the hands moving before you press the spray button, and keep the hand moving as you release it. The distance from the surface should be 6 to 8 inches. Adjust travel speed to get the best result. Spray in layered patern. You should adjust the speed of travel just enough to cover the surface completely without mist but not to much since this will result in "orange peel" appearance or worst a run down and keep a steady pace.. Use a cardboard to practice first. Remember do not disturb any part that can be buffed out. Most faded out surface can be sanded and buffed smooth. If you take your time and do a good job you will be happy to see the fruits of your labor everytime you go outside and see your car. Good luck!

Someone spraypainted my car how do I remove it?


Depends on the paint.
Most of the time you can use rubbing or polishing compound to "rub" the spray paint off.
As for the sugar, if you have not cranked the engine yet, or turned on the key, you may be able to take the gas tank off and clean it out without having to flush the fuel lines.

How do I fix paint chips on the hood?


I suggest you keep touching in the spots and building up the level over time until it is slightly proud of the surrounding paintwork. When fully hardened the surface of the spot should be flatted with a small block. I use the end of a short piece of 3/8 or 1/2 inch wooden dowel with a circle of fine abrasive paper glued to it. I sand wet and begin with 600 grit and finish with 1000 or 1200 grit. Once the area is flush it can then be polished with a polishing compound such as farecla and finished with T-cut.
A coat or two of lacquer can be applied or a few coats of hard wax polish.
