Which Type of Wax is Best for Cleaning Your Motor Home?

iPhone users spend a lot of time choosing the best protective case.

Enthusiasts deliberate over which frame best suits a particular artwork.

A housewife spends the better part of her day Scotchgarding the new Persian carpet.

Find anything common in these three scenarios? No? Well, all these people are trying to protect and present something valuable in the best possible way. The iPhone users want to show off their expensive new device without risking any damage; the intellectuals want the frame to complement the pricey artwork; the housewife wants the carpet cleaner to remove all stains and dirt from her luxurious carpet so that the product retains its appearance. By that logic, RV-ers should take the time to choose the best wax for cleaning their motor home. After all, RVs don’t come cheap. You’ve spent a considerable amount buying a new or a used luxury motor home. So, it makes sense that you’d want to keep your vehicle looking great for as long as possible. Wax can help in this regard. The question is, which wax do you choose?

Types of Wax

Wash and Wax

As the name suggests, this product is said to wash and wax the surface of your vehicle simultaneously. Unfortunately, no real protection remains by the time you are done.

Cleaner Wax

Among the ingredients used to manufacture cleaner waxes is present a mild abrasive. Thus, you get light stain removal benefits while waxing. Though the performance of this protectant is good, it corrodes your RV’s  gel or clear coating. So, you should use cleaner wax only when and where required.

Polymer Wax

Polymer waxes are the latest addition to the industry. Most of these products are fully synthetic without any natural wax. They are easy to use owing to the liquid cream consistency and provide suitable protection to your RV. The formula for these polymer protectants also includes the latest in technology additives, enabling the substance to bond better with the surface, provide true UV protection, and last longer.

Straight Paste Wax

This is the traditional wax used for automobile cleaning and protection. You need to put in some serious elbow grease for buffing these products. However, non-productive fillers have been added to the formulas of late to make them easier to work with. The drawback is you need multiple towels while buffing to get rid of the powdery filler.

Finishing Wax

This product differs considerably from cleaner wax since it does not possess any cleaning ability, at least not enough to be used expressly for cleaning purposes. Instead, it is used for adding the finishing touches to vehicles with excellent paint jobs or on RVs that have had their paint reconditioned via paint correction and polishing.

Picking the Right Wax for the Job

You should always choose the right wax for your motor home based on the finish of your vehicle and the amount of time you have on your hands.

  • If you have a brand-new rig, you can obtain amazing results with finishing wax.
  • However, if your car is old and has lost its sheen, there are two ways to go about the waxing process. It all depends on how long you have to spare. For the best results, first use polish to improve the paint gloss of your RV. Apply finishing wax to complete the task.
  • If you’re just interested in washing and waxing your car, a cleaner wax will suffice. Most of the time, you will still achieve positive results but the time required will be less. However, you need to put in some serious effort to work the cleaner into the paint.

Make your RV look its best with the right kind of wax. If you have bought a used luxury motor home, wax it to bring back the lost shine. Sure, the process requires some effort and is time-consuming, but the outcome is worth it. After all, who doesn’t want their motor home to retain its sheen for years to come?
