RV Wash

What's the best RV Wash product to use on new MH with full body paint and clear coat? Been researching, and it's really confusing.

Winnebago recommends a lambs wool mitt/wash pad and baby shampoo.

What say fellow Winnebago owners?

Hi,

I use a RV Wash and Wax when the coach is real dirty otherwise I just use plain water. I also use a microfiber mitt on a long handle and it does a fine job. If you get a lambs wool mitt make sure it is pure lambs wool and not synthetic.

When waxing the Coach I use Protect-all and do it usually twice a year.

Hope this answers your question.

PA Weldor, we have a Newmar, but ours came with the same instructions re using a wool mitt and baby shampoo. I do use the wool mitt as I found the microfiber does leave swirl marks. I use Mothers car wash with carnuba wax(walmart-yellow soap), and I wax it with McGuires Pure Carnuba wax( no cleaners), it goes on/off easy and when done it looks better than the day I got it. Using the Mothers wash in between waxing keeps it nice and smooth/glossy with no swirls.

By the way I love your tag line, that couldn't say it any better.....

I use Meguire's cleaner wax in between washes. Goes on like wax and removes black streaks, bug goo, and bird bombs with a wipe of the cloth. I have an 03 with full body paint and it really keeps it shining. I apply it about once a month from spring to fall. Just did it yesterday. Took about 90 minutes and will keep the exterior protected until next spring.

I use a water less product that is a Boeing Aircraft Spec product called Wash Wax All. The system works with a proprietary mob head that holds a dry and a wet Microfiber mob. I have been able to clean and wax my coach in a little over two hours without getting on a ladder. It is also the best windshield cleaning system that I have come across.

That's what Newmar recommends now too, must be a reason they recommend it. You know, like that's what works!

Thanks for all the replies. Looks like I went the right route with ordering a Lambswool wash and pad holder. Now, I need to buy some Meguire's.

To wash the rv I use Blue Coral Concentrate sold at Wal-Mart for $4 and when I dry the rv I spray on Lucas Slick Mist or Turtle Wax 1 Step Wash & Dry. Both of these sell at Wal-Mart for about $5 to $7. I used to wax the rv twice a year with NuFinish, but it is too much work. So easy to spray on products when you dry the rv and the shine is great.

Spray on products last about as long as they take to put on and are a waste of money. If you want lasting results use a real wax product. You will find That the more you wax, the easier it goes on and buffs off, and the better your rig will look.

for the owners who use the "Wash & Wax All" how long does the product really last.


I know when I looked at it at the GNR I thought about it, but I am the old school type where I feel without washing the dirt off with soap and water you can scratch the body. That is the way I always did my cars since I was a teenager. Right now I wash the RV whenever I can with a "Premium Gel-Gloss Wash and Wax" soap and wax by hand once a year. Once in awhile in between I do use Eagle spray on wax

How do you keep it from spotting after washing? I even did the vinegar and baby shampoo setup and it still spots.

I could never understand how a wash and wax product could really do either job properly if they are used at the same time. I typically wash the RV every two to three weeks and use a cleaner wax once a month. Since there really isn't a whole lot of dirt on the RV when I use the cleaner wax, it doesn't scratch the paint. Some of you may think I'm a little anal, but that's the way I am with my stuff. I also do a 41 ft boat, and two vehicles that way. Let's just say doing all that and mowing the lawn keeps me busy when I'm not working or away camping!

The Wash Wax All product carries a Boeing Aircraft Specification for use on Boeing aircraft. This is popular for use on high end private aircraft. I have not scratched my rig using this system. If there is gross contamination then I will rinse off with water first and then clean using the Wash Wax All. I clean after I arrive at a destination and then once a month I will clean it. Usually takes about 2 hours for a quick job and another hour to get the hard to hit spots. This affords me a chance to inspect the rig. With the California drought restrictions on washing vehicles. IMO it is the best method. I also don't have to use a ladder with the proprietary mob head.
