waxer

What are you guys using to apply the wax on your trailers?

My random orbit buffer is shot and so is my shoulder.

It is called my detail guy and have it done every spring and fall. I used to detail trailers after work and weekends back in the day and used a 3 wheel orbital pols her that worked great. I used single wheel ones and the trick is to have 2 or 3 different foam wheels for the different waxes. It will give you a good workout. I do not have time while working so I hire it out. 225 twice a year

Thanks woodwalker. I spent the last half hour looking for a 3 wheel polisher online.

What I was hoping to hear about is what some are using for a tool to apply the wax and then buff it off.
Plus what their opinions are of what they are using.
Something that can be purchased today at the local auto shop or dept. store.
I've went thru a couple orbital buffers.


Plus I'm sorry to say, neighborhood kids and detailers are not an option where I live.

Lloyd, like I said before I don't wax my Rv. Don't believe in wax. I use Rejex, a polymer coating. Rub in on with cloth by hand, and just rub it off. Really not much effort. I do only a front or back a day, and split the sides into two days.

Yes, I remember you saying you use Rejex. I have never used it, but have seen it used down in TX. when we were there for a rally. The rigs looked really nice when they finished.

I should probably knock on wood, I have always used turtle wax. My rig is a 2008. Still will produce a very nice shine and the decals have not cracked or split (yet) and they get waxed right over along with everything else.
So it's pretty hard to convince me to switch at this point.

I would just like to hear from others about what tool they are using.
