I am going to use the Adam's Paint Sealant on my new fifth wheel camper. So I am wondering what would be the best maintenance for that as far as soap used and using Guard and Gloss.

So am I better off using just regular car shampoo every wash and using guard and gloss every 3 or 4 washes?

Or would using wash and wax be better? Can I use guard and gloss with wash and wax?

I know with such a big camper, just wash and wax would definitely save time.

Hi Ryan,
On the last couple of campers that I have done, I have gone with Wash & Wash.  Using the Foam Gun or Foam Cannon along with Red Car Wash Wedge makes for a easy wash on large surfaces and leaves the camper looking good.  Using G20 Guard and Gloss once a month or so is also beneficial.   As for the Class 'C' cabover and the front on 5th wheel's and campers using Spray Wax on them right before travelling makes getting the bugs off much easier when you arrive at your destination.

Would a spray ceramic coating work better on the nose of the camper than paint sealant?

Which one would be easier to clean?

Welcome Ryan!

Ceramic Spray coating would be the easiest to clean.

For the beating that the front of the camper gets, I'd recommend twice a year with ceramic spray coating, if it is always exposed to the weather.  If you have a canopy that it is under or a cover that you put on it for the winter, then once a year, late spring should be fine.   If you have a canopy then you want to do it under the canopy when the sun will not hit it for a few hours.  If you do not have a canopy and cannot otherwise get it out of the sun, wait until you have a low to mid humidity day when there will be cloud cover for the entire process and no risk of rain.

My camper sits inside all winter, so it is only outside maybe 6 to 7 months a year. Would it be beneficial to use the strip wash as it’s first wash as the camper is new?

 

I am also leaning towards just using the paint sealant I have this year to see how that holds up. I don’t currently have ceramic spray coating and would like to use what I have if I could.

I always recommend a strip wash when you don't know what is on the item you are dealing with.  That is the only way to ensure that anything the dealer or someone else did is removed and you are bonding to the original surface.   Paint Sealant should work fine and you can always top it with H20 Guard & Gloss.  Also, if you have Wash & Wax, it works well for doing large surfaces.   If you have Ceramic Paste Wax, that will hold up for many months and would be another product that you could use on the front.

I don’t have ceramic paste wax, but I have a bottle of the ceramic liquid wax. Would that work over the paint sealant for more protection especially on the nose of camper?

You'll love the Ceramic Liquid Wax for the ease of use and it still lasts a long time and should be perfect for multiple months on the front of the 5th wheel.  I have not used it on top of Paint Sealant, so I cannot tell you if that would affect the longevity or not.

Ok. I will probably use the ceramic wax on the nose, since it will probably be better and easier to clean than the sealant.

can I top that wax with graphene detail spray or cs3?

 

then I will probably just paint sealant the rest and see how it works

CS3 and Graphene Details Spray are perfect companions for the Ceramic Wax.
