Time To Wax

With tomorrow being the first Saturday in a while that is going to be nice here in SC, I am planing on waxing my TT. I have ordered some Mothers Marine Synthetic Wax from Amazon and should be arriving today. Has anyone else used this product and what advice can you give me. Also, can I wax over the decals or do I need to keep the wax off of them. Of course I am planing on washing the unit before I start waxing. Thanks for any advice and recommendations.

Derrick

I usually do our's once a year. I use Mcguiars cleaner-wax as it seems to clean up the road grime residue pretty easily and leaves a nice finish.
I used to just use the old elbow grease method but this last time, used a buffer to help apply and clean. What a difference.
I'm fired up to get out their again just thinking about it.

Every season I clay-barred the front before waxing.....I'm a Clay Bar junkie. I can feel the difference after washing and waxing.

I am curious, do you only wax the hard sided TT or also the aluminum sided ones?

I just wash the trailer top down and dry it with my leaf blower. I've yet to see a need to clay the sides or rear of the trailer but I did lightly clay the front cap last fall. I haven't seen a seen to wax the trailer yet either so I just use Opti-seal and then wash with ONR the rest of the year.

Mark - you sound like my friend Eric with his '72 Nova. He would eat the clay if you let him!

You see grass yet? Sunshine today has me itching to open up camper!
