Wade Waxin’ Duratain Lastin’
Daylan Asks: I watched a video on your web site where you used beast wash for an extremely dirty RV and used a pressure washer. I am wondering if Beast wash can be used like regular soap just to do a regular washing? My RV is not very dirty at all so I suppose I […]Read More
Wax On – Wax Off and Bring Back that Shine!
Wade Replies: Scott, If the outside of your camper is painted aluminum paneling I would first give it a good Beast Washing to remove as much of the dirt and stains as possible. I would then go over it by hand using our Wade Wax. Work the product like a polish for this job. Don’t […]Read More
Some Like It Hot… But Not When Waxing Your Beast!
Wade Replies: Ed, Yes you can, however a hot surface is never a good surface to work with. If your finish is dark I would not attempt applying any wax in the direct sun unless it’s a cold day. It’s all about surface temperature on your RV and not the sun. Thanks, Wade Ed […]Read More

Thomas Asks: Hello Wade, We have a 2005 30 foot Keystone Montana model 2980RL 5th wheel that has a badly oxidized front and rear cap, with the remaining RV in a dull oxidized finish.

Are the products I already have (Beast Wash, Wade Wax and \”Spit Shine\” Waterless Wash and Wax) effective to use on the chassis exterior or should I use automotive products?
