Full body paint what wax do you use

Getting a new coach and was wondering what brand of wax you use on your coach. I read on line that it has to be a pure wax no fillers. Also how long till you can wax it after you get it from Winnie.

I use Rejex but have no idea what kind of Winnebago you have or protection for your paint you should use. Recomended at a seminar at last GNR.

I have read that one should wait a minimum of 6 months before waxing fresh paint.

I prefer using a polish rather than wax. But that's just me.

One coat of hand rubbed Nu Finish once a year topped off with a high quality carnuba based wax. Usually needs a six pack or two to help work it in good on a sunny day. No fade yet, going on ten years. Bugs fall off the front with hose and water.

We clean ours with a California duster between trips and use EZdetailer, a long lasting carnauba wax formula.

NuFinish once every spring applied with an orbital polisher, followed by periodic cleaning/application with No Wet. No Wet is a dry wash which also has wax. It stays so slick that flies bust their little butts when they try to land on it .

I have used Turtle Wax Liquid Car Wash since new a couple of times a year. Goes on with a sponge or soft car wash brush, then rinse off. I use a large California Duster for cleanups between washings.
