It’s important to give your RV a thorough wash and wax every six months to keep it looking as good as new. Bugs, bird droppings, and grime from the road can leave stains and screw up your RV’s paint job if they are not cleaned properly. Waxing also helps protect your RV from the sun’s damaging UV rays which can cause the paint and decals to fade over time.
RV Shine and Shield is a new wax replacement spray, recently introduced in 2018, that is faster and easier to apply than traditional RV wax. The spray can be used on a variety of surfaces including paint, vinyl, stainless steel, glass, plexiglass, and rubber.
The new RV protectant spray comes from Glidecoat, a leading manufacturer of ceramic coatings for boats, planes, and automobiles. Their product line also includes a Boat Wax Replacement Spray for marine use and a Car Wax Replacement spray that can be used on most cars, trucks, and motorcycles.
The highlights of their new RV Shine & Shield include:
- Application is quick and easy. Just spray on and wipe clean with a microfiber cloth. No need to pull out your buffer or spend hours on maintenance.
- Gives your RV a lasting gloss and shine for up to 8 months. The solution bonds directly to the surface of your vehicle, unlike traditional RV wax which only sits on top of the surface.
- Protects the exterior from spots caused by bugs, dirt, road tar, salt, etc. The spray makes the surface hydrophobic and easy to wipe clean.
- Sun damage protection. The UV inhibitors will help protect your RV from fading after camping out in the sun all summer.
The RV Shine & Shield spray is made in the USA with no wax or silicone products. It’s available on Amazon in a 16-ounce spray bottle and a large gallon refill jug.

Will it work on gellcoat ?
E Schoenholz says
I tried this on my 32′ Class C with full body paint. It applied real good and fairly quickly. I followed directions, Not in the sun and buffed with micro fiber towels. I rubbed it down 2 times after applied. Looked great. After a light rain…the coach looked terrible. Most of the coach had streaks all down the sides. I re-wiped again, looked good. The same thing happened again after another rain. So after wiping down the coach 4 to 5 times…..I am going back to using wax. The streaks are getting better, but still much more work than wax. No more Glidecoat for me. It just isn’t worth the cost or the headache.

Any comments on using the Torque Detail products on fiberglass RVs? I think they’re ceramic.
I just checked on Amazon and both spray bottle and gallon refill are shown as not available. The company website doesn’t list RV specific products but the boat projects should work on an RV. I didn’t bother contacting the company.

Due to demand, as a result of this article, Amazon has run out of inventory, so the product is not displayed. They should have inventory by end of week or you can order directly from Glidecoat who are offering free shipping, until Amazon re-stocks.

Thanks it’s worth a shot. At the present time I use Gel-Gloss wash and wax sold by Camper World.

I’ve been using Wash Wax ALL to clean my RV, but I just put a ceramic coat on which was a lot of work but is supposed to last a year.
George Glovier says
I am using the Turtle Wax ceramic products on my cars and soon will be trying them on my 5th wheel. If you look at the YouTube reviews on Turtle Wax it almost always comes out on top in price and durability. So far they are working great!

If what you are shopping for the best spray wax for RV then I am pretty sure that you will be satisfied with the Meguiar’s M5032 One-step Liquid Cleaner Wax: it contains chemical cleaners designed to eliminate minor swirls, light oxidation, scratches, and haze from your marine or RV. Removes stains and debris and deliver long-lasting protection from corrosion, salt air, and the V rays of the sun. It is one of the best wax for gel coat RV as well as fiberglass as it ensures that the materials stay vibrant, crisp, and shiny for a long period of time.

I’m on my second bottle of 303 wax now. I take advantage of it on the black bumpers and interior of my RV to protect it from the tough southwestern US sun. It really brings faded bumpers back to life. I have to reapply every 2 months to stay my fiberglass moneyed and cared for.
