How to wash, polish and wax your RV or Motorhome (http://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/boat-rv-detailing/50598-how-wash-polish-wax-your-rv-motorhome.html)


I received an e-mail with some questions about how-to take care of the exterior of smaller, C Class RV's

With the permission of April, I've posted her inquiry here to our forum with my answers and links to products that will make the job of cleaning, polishing and maintain an RV faster and easier while maximizing the owners time, efforts and investments.

I like how your Autogeek.net site as well as your AutogeekOnline.net discussion forum offers help and education and would like to offer a guide of sorts to my readers, including links to specific products, or maybe some kits that contain a collection of product to tackle RV specific projects.

Here are some of my questions, which may take more than one article to present adequetly...

Because of the large size of most RV’s, most owners will want to take regular care of their RV but use high quality products so the work is done right the first time and thus will endure over time. Things like using a quality wax or sealant on the exterior pays off because it will last longer and protect longer so the owner doesn’t have to wax the RV as often.

Again, due to the size of most RV’s, even small RV's, washing and waxing an RV can take a day or a couple of days depending upon what’s involved and most RV owners would rather do it right the first time so they won’t have to do this type of maintenance often.

Exterior RV Maintenance
With that said, where the RV is stored and how the RV is stored are HUGE factors as to when to perform maintenance.

If you live in a wet climate, like my parents who live in Florence, Oregon, it rains a lot and my Dad like to machine apply a coat of wax to his RV twice a year, once at the end of summer before the rainy season sets in and then a second time in the spring before summer temperatures begin to climb.

If you live in Arizona, rain is not a concern but exposure to the harmful UV rays from the sun, plus dirt and dust in the air caused the windy conditions are factors that must be addressed.

A good rule of thumb for either geographical and environmental regions is to wash your RV as often as needed to maintain a clean appearance and wax your RV at least once a year or more often, like twice a year as this will ensure the exterior doesn’t deteriorate plus looks new throughout the year.

For washing RV’s, you want to use non-detergent washes formulated to clean without stripping previously applied waxes and/or paint sealants and also because they are less harsh to gel-coat surfaces which can become dried out when using a detergent like dish soap. When gel-coat has become dried-out it will oxidize more readily, so it’s very important not to wash gel-coat finishes with detergent soaps.

Another option is to use a waterless wash, with a waterless wash you spray a heavy coat of product onto the surface and then wipe the surface clean. A quality waterless wash will hyper-lubricate the surface to prevent instilling scratches while cleaning and then wipe off to a bright shine.

Recommended products
Many of these products are from our Detailer's Pro Series line of professional grade products but they are completely compatible with materials and coatings used in the assembly of RV's.

Dress and protect tires
The rubber used to make tires is actually very complex in its composition. To help prevent weathering and cracking, the rubber formula includes an ingredient called antiozonant. As your tires rotate under speed, the antiozonant works its way out to the surface of the sidewall to replenish old antiozonant. When this antiozonant is exposed to the atmosphere, the ozone in the air turns the antiozonant on your tire brown.

That's why you see tires turn brown, it's a chemical reaction between the life-extending ingredient antiozonant deteriorating when it meets ozone. To restore a dark, black look to your tires all you need to do is scrub the sidewall with a safe, but effective cleaner to remove the brown residue also called blooming, and then apply a tire dressing.

A good choice for protecting the exterior is to use what is called a Cleaner/Wax, that is a wax that will clean, polish and protect in one step. One-step products are popular for large items like RV’s and Boats because it takes too long and requires a lot of extra work to do a multiple-step process such as using a dedicated cleaner, a dedicated polish and then follow with a dedicated non-cleaning wax.

If your RV has a neglected finish, that is it shows signs of oxidation, swirls and scratches, which is especially common to RV’s with gel-coat finishes, (which oxidize easily), then a quality product for this is the Pinnacle XMT 360 Cleaner/Wax which is formulated for machine application with easy to use tools like the Porter Cable 7424XP (http://www.autogeek.net/dual-action-polishers.html). The XMT 360 is available in both 16 ounces (http://www.autogeek.net/xmt-360.html) and 32 ounce (http://www.autogeek.net/fco32ozxmt36.html) options

If your RV has an automotive clear coat finish in excellent condition, (common to high end RV’s), then a long lasting paint sealant like Detailer’s Pro Series Poli-Coat Paint Sealant which is available in both 16 ounces (http://www.autogeek.net/dp-poli-coat-paint-sealant.html) and 32 ounces (http://www.autogeek.net/dp-poli-coat-32oz.html) for large items like RV’s.

Typically you’ll need at least a half a dozen polishing pads to restore a neglected RV finish with a cleaner/wax. You can wash these pads and re-use them but from a "time" point of view, it will be a lot faster to replace a pad that has become dirt with oxidation and wet with product with a clean, dry pad then it will be to wash and dry the pad for re-use.

If you're working on an RV and the exterior finish is in new or excellent condition, then you can probably get away with 2-3 pads to machine apply a paint sealant to an RV with a clear coat finish.

The Porter Cable 7424XP is lightweight and easy to use and takes all the work out of applying wax but it doesn't come with a backing plate so you'll need to get one separately, and you'll also want to stock up on some "Polishing" pads, in the Lake Country Line of pads these are the "white" foam pads and they are very versatile yet safe to use.

2. What are steps to take for bug removal for Class C RV’s where there is the automobile finishes of the bumper/hood, and then the gel-coat, fiberglass, decals, etc of the coach? Does this approach apply to tar and sap as well?

Bug Splatter should be removed as soon as possible because the acids inside the bug can actually etch clear coat paints and stain gel-coat surfaces. If the bug splatter has dried then the best way to remove it is to first soften it with water and products specifically made to dissolve and remove dried bug splatter.

Diamondite Bug Eraser Kit (http://www.autogeek.net/diamondite-bug-eraser-kit.html)

Poorboy's World Bug Squash (http://www.autogeek.net/pobugsq32oz.html)

Safe Scrub Bug & Tar Pad (http://www.autogeek.net/pinsafscrub.html)

Removing tar usually requires a solvent that will dissolve the tar so it can be wiped off without harming gel-coat or painted surfaces.

Tar Remover (http://www.autogeek.net/tarminator.html)

Removing tree sap can often be done by using a tar remover but different types of trees emit different types of tree sap and different types of tree sap can either come off easily or with great difficulty. If someone runs into problems removing Tree Sap from their RV we recommend they either call us or post their questions to our RV forum here,

Autogeek Discussion Forum (http://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/)

3. How can an average RV owner clean the high spots, in particular the cab-over area that is subject to insects, but the where the hood is in the way of a ladder? Some had used the Black & Decker 18-volt Power Scrubber with a 14ft reach, which is now discontinued.

In order to wash, clean and wax the elevated areas of a Motorhome safely, you really need to invest in the right scaffolding that will enable you to stand and work at elevated heights. I don't recommend trying to do this kind of work using a common ladder as it's too easy to fall and get hurt.

Pressure washers are another option and work really well with the right cleaning soaps and tools like the Foam Cannon.

Detailer’s Pro Series Xtreme Foam Formula Shampoo (http://www.autogeek.net/foam-gun-soap.html) - For use with Foam Guns

Autogeek Foam Cannon (http://www.autogeek.net/autogeek-foam-cannon-hp.html) - For use with a Pressure Washer

Here's are some examples of scaffolding available at your local hardware and home supply stores,




4. What are the must-haves while out on the road where there are limitations to space (length, weight and volume), and no access to a water hose?

Keeping your RV clean without access to a source of free flowing water is often a challenge; this same issue often confronts mobile detailers, people that live in apartments and condos, areas under water restrictions or in drought conditions.

The good news is there products now available just for this purpose. They work by using high lubricity cleaning solutions to loosen and remove dirt while leaving a scratch-free finish with a shiny, just detailed look.

Detailer's Pro Series Waterless Auto Wash (http://www.autogeek.net/waterless-auto-wash.html) = Ready To Use

The key to getting great results using a waterless wash is to have plenty of premium quality microfiber towels handy so as you remove dirt and road grime off your RV and onto the microfiber towel, you can set dirty towels aside and switch to a new, clean microfiber towel.

Cobra Supreme 530 Microfiber Towel - Pair (http://www.autogeek.net/cobra-supreme-530-towels.html)

5. Any thoughts on Thetford’s Premium RV Black Streak & Bug Remover? Does this product strip wax? What is it comparable to in your lines?

I've never used this product but we carry comparable products.

Duragloss Black Streak Eliminator (http://www.autogeek.net/black-streak-eliminator--581.html)

Mothers Black Streak Remover (http://www.autogeek.net/mothers-marine-black-streak-remover.html)

It is my intent is to give my readers actual useful information that they won't get everywhere else.

Great information.

I have a question about the type of paint you find on enclosed trailers. I was told by a dealer that the paint is vey thin and is enamel. I have a customer who has one of the trailers with oxidized paint. How is the bet way to remove the oxidation and bring the shine back. The color is black by the way.

Thanks in advance.

My experience is the paint is like you describe, thin. The best and safest way to tackle anything like a trailer with thin paint is using a one step cleaner/wax with a foam pad on a simple DA polisher like Porter Cable 7424XP.

How to choose and use a one-step cleaner/wax by Mike Phillips (http://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/ask-expert-featuring-mike-phillips/81546-how-choose-one-step-cleaner-wax.html)

That's accurate.

only use martime compounds n maritime waxes!!

Need to be careful with this advice. High-end RV's have a basecoat/clearcoat finish just like a car and most Marine compounds are way too aggressive for a thin, clearcoat finish.

Best thing to do is to start by finding out exactly what type of finish is on the RV and if it is in fact a basecoat/clearcoat finish then treat it like a brand new car.

If you want best results expect to put alot of elbows n grease!!

Or get a quality dual action polisher and let the machine do most of the work.

Would you happen to have any advice on restoring faded decals? I just purchased a Damon Intruder that has some fading on the decals on the front and a little on the right side. Will a standard polish bring it back? I'm a fairly accomplished detailer but I have no idea how to get these back - if it's even possible. The biggest DA I've got is the 7424XP and I've got a 7"/9" rotary. Hoping to be able to do it with a DA, if I need to buy one to get it looking good and keep it there, I'll definitely do that. I mainly want to bring them back as close to original as possible and hopefully protect the rest of the coach in the process. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Sorry for the late reply, I just now found this post.

You want and need to be very careful when it comes to working on vinyl graphics, especially older graphics.

The quality of the graphics will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.

I know I've buffed on top of vinyl graphics before where it removed the color which means if a person were to have continued buffing on the graphics it would have ruined the graphic.

On the other hand some are very resilient and when lightly buffed you can clean them up and brighten their color.

Now follow me... in the same way paint can become dirty and stained over time. Like I show in this article,

Here's why you need to polish paint... (http://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/ask-expert-featuring-mike-phillips/68100-here-s-why-you-need-polish-paint.html)


The graphics on a car can also become stained with dirt.

make sense?

A few months ago I buffed out this mostly original 1978 Trans Am - the same model Burt Reynolds drove in the moving Smokey and the Bandit.

The paint on 70% of the car is the ORIGINAL single stage Lacquer paint and the screaming Eagle vinyl graphics on the hood are also the original graphics.

The paint was both stained and oxidized. Doesn't make sense that the graphics would also be stained and oxidized?

I tell you what I saw since I was standing in front of the car taking both the before and after pictures was I saw vinyl graphics that were DULL and LIFELESS before I buffed them out.

After I buffed them out the colors became brighter and more colorful. So to me, machine buffing them was a success.

Here's the pictures,

Before machine buffing

After machine buffing


I machine buffed the paint using the Rupes Bigfoot 21 with the Rupes Quarz Gloss Medium Cut Compound and the Rupes Green foam light cutting pad.


I machine buffed the graphics using the Rupes Diamond Ultra Fine Polish with the Rupes white ultra soft foam pad.


And just to show how the original lacquer paint looked before buffing which is also an indicator as to how weathered and beat up the graphics were before buffing....











So my advice to you is to

First, be sure you're willing to risk buffing the graphics in the first place in an effort to improve them.

Second, test an ultra fine cut polish and a super soft foam buffing pad to an inconspicuous area.

Third, use a dual action polisher of some type and be gentle.

Hope that helps...

Recently I buffed out the hood and hood only on the COPO Camaro Bruno Massel races and to clean, brighten and protect the graphics on the hood I used the Rupes Bigfoot 21 with the super ultra soft white foam polishing pad and the NEW & Improved Diamond Ultra Fine Polish.



You can find that thread here,

37ft 5th wheel RV,truck is Black Volvo770 semi.I used Griots sealant on both about 11/2-2yrs ago.Both sit outside (Colorado)
Trailer has mostly gel coat,it has some black streaks,using Griots #2 polish and Griots DA,they are not coming out.Oxidation either.

Would a one step cleaner,wax sealant work to redo the units or do I have to remove the previously applied sealant...(whew).
Thanks for any recommendations.

Might have to get more aggressive if the black streaks have penetrated deep into the gel-coat. Our spray on black streak remove might work but because gel-coat is porous my guess is the stain has penetrated too deep for a wipe on, wipe off type product and you'll have to abrade the surface.

Would a one step cleaner,wax sealant work to redo the units or do I have to remove the previously applied sealant...(whew).

No need to remove any previously applied sealant with a special process or product.

A quality one-step cleaner/wax will remove what's left of any old sealant or wax while at the same time, clean, polish and protect.

OK,received the Pinnacle XMT 360 last PM.Started waxing RV today..
Gelcoat and no matter how long I run the orbital on it,it will not disappear and needs to be buffed off.It does not buff off easy..The Gelcoat is cleaned up and shiny but taking a long time.
I am using Griots 6" orbital with Griot's orange pad...Any ideas?
This thing is 37ft long and 8.5 high.Mostly ladder work..It does look nice where I have been but difficult to buff off..Thank you
