Washing/Waxing your camper

What does everyone use to wash/wax your camper. I want to hear what everyone else has experienced so I dont have to try everything out myself.. I prefer quick easy and power washing if possible...

zip wax or turtle wax car wash stuff, and a heavy dose of simple green on the front, and also to take off black scuffs and the smoke residue.

I use a soap called Gel-Gloss(its a wash.wax) and on the nose cone I use NuFinish wax. Makes it look new and shiney. can't wait to get it back from being fixed.

I used Mcguires NXT wax. It goes on and comes of easy. It has been about 15 months since I waxed it and it is still doing good. Cleans up pretty easy.

I have not done my new one yet (It's 39' long, so I am dreading it)... The new one is fiberglass sided, the old one was aluminum. I waxed the old one with Nufinish and also tried Meguiars Gold Class on it.. The Nufinish held up better but was harder to put on/take off...

I just bought some stuff recommended by my dealer that is made by Thetford that is a wash/wax all in one. I figure to use it until the fall and then probably put a hand wax on it with something, just not sure what yet....

Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end

i use full timers choice wash and wax from wal-mart . stay away from preasure washing . campers are easy enough to develope a leak as they are usually not sealed very well from the factory anyway . a preasure washer will blow right through a seal and you will not know it until your walls are rotton from leaking .

started with 1996 2500 4x4 auto
then a 2004.5 2500 4x4
now have a 2007.5 6.7 4x4 3500 drw mega cab 3:73 rear G56
