I literally hand wipe the whole with 303 products...takes some time, but she looks good in the end. We have not done an actual wash yet...

Cale - how does that product interact with the protective coating that the dealer applied with the 5 or so year warranty? Any issues that you are aware of?

Good question....as lazy as our dealer was, I seriously doubt there was any product applied to my trailer....Especially on the front cap (mine is painted), it is much easier to get the bugs off the front.

I also use the 303 quick detailer on my truck, it works really awesome too, plastic and paint.

I had the Polysteel applied inside and out - warranty for 5 years on paint, carpet and upholstery. Reapply extends the warranty another 3 years up to I think 3 or 5 times for reapply. I am going to give the 303 a shot though for sure on the garage floor and other surfaces and test a small spot on the exterior.

I bought 303 off Amazon. They have a lot of different formularies. I read until I was about blind and was still confused. I finally went with their Speed Detailer and Aerospace Protectant. The products are also great for tires, a nice, no-mess dressing. I also bought a box of microfibre rags from Amazon. There were a lot for about $20.

The protectant has to be applied to a clean surface and should be buffed to dry...which on nearly 45 foot of trailer is a long ordeal. The detailer can be used anytime. I use it on the front cap after every trip, keeps it looking nice.

When I did this, I did the trailer in quarters. It was also a good time to do inspections...since I touched every square inch of the front, back, and sides....

According to their website "303 Aerospace Protectant is recommended by Fleetwood RV, Thor Industries, NuWa, Winnebago, Zodiac, Riken, and Sevylor." So I couldn't see it damaging any type of paint protection.

I just ordered the big jug off Amazon, got my 2013 3895 yesterday, besides small maintenance and a little carpentry projects, which I love doing anyway, we are very happy. I cant believe how loaded this thing is, and besides road grime, she is in great shape. Bought it at an auction with only my buddy looking at it, and saved 25K
