A lot of people are always asking me: What do you use to wash or wax your RV? I’ve used Meguiar’s products for as long as I’ve been driving and they’re always what I recommend to my fellow RVers and customers. I’ve tried just about every wax out there and I can’t find anything as easy to apply or that lasts as long and protects the way this does.
I use it on all my vehicles, including my RV. I only use two other products: 303 on all the decals, vinyl and plastics; and if I have a stubborn streak that won’t come off, I use Gabe’s Pride black streak remover.
Here’s a picture of the products I like and use to wash and wax RVs. (Please note: I have zero affiliation with any of these. This is just my opinion on products I like and use.) Hope this info helps someone. Happy cleaning!
The products I use to wash and wax RVs:
- Meguiar’s Hot Rims Wheel & Tire Cleaner
- Meguiar’s Ultimate Waterless Wash & Wax
- Meguiar’s Ultimate Wash and Wax
- Meguiar’s Hybrid Ceramic Detailer
- Meguiar’s Ultimate Quik Detailer
- Meguiar’s Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax
- Meguiar’s Ultimate Liquid Wax
- Meguiar’s Ultimate Compound
- 303 Aerospace UV Protection
Thank you, Dustin!
Once a year I machine wax my 40 foot motorhome (takes 2 days using scaffolding) and 2-3 times a year I had been using Maguiar’s ultimate fast finish. A few years ago I switched over to RejeX polymer coating 2-3 times a year and found that it last longer and protects better than the ultimate fast finish. Like the Maguiar’s I use an microfiber applicator on a pole to apply, let it dry and remove with another microfiber on a pole changing out the second one several times during the process. I always wash the bugs from the front after making trips and follow up with another coating of RejeX.
In all of my research regarding care for my finish I have found the best advice is never wax always clearcoat always use a Sealant. I use Maguires Sealant 21 with a buffer annually. The coach is 9 yrs old and looks new.
Like Richard I use “Rejex”. Bugs seem to come off the front easier.
However we first used Rejex to prevent lake stain on our glass boat. It worked very well. Missed a spot…and it was very obvious.
If you haven’t tried REJEX give it a try. Good for airplanes and decals.
We have been using a waterless wash and wax for 6 years now. It’s so easy to apply that I use it on my fifth wheel every 3 months. Being fulltime, it’s difficult to find parks that let you wash your RV. Just yesterday had to get bugs off front cap after being on I 10 from Florida to Arizona. Then wash waxed the front cap for protection as we head west. I bought the extension pole with pívot head they sell so I don’t even need a ladder. It’s safe for decals and has UV protection.

Thank you for sharing.
In many RV parks, guests are not allowed to use park water to wash RVs or vehicles. You hire a mobile rig washer with their own water supply. The folks who wash our rig in Texas pointed me to Chemical Guys products. When it comes to stripping oxidation and polishing, I’ve never found anything that works so well and is less labor intensive in application. Beats even Meguiar’s fine products – and I spot tested both lines side by side on our fiberglass RV wall. Chemical Guys ceramic wax product is equally easy in application; but I am still waiting to see how well it weathers the Texas sun compared to other waxes.
I have used Chemical Guys products on all my vehicles including my 5th wheel for years. All of their cleaning/polishing products are excellent and easy to use. I will add, however, that I just started using Dawn Powerwash on wheels and tires. Spray, rinse, amazing. Safe Travels.
Great products all. It is exactly what my detail guy uses.
