Just so I understand, you folks that are using the extended pole, you use the pole to both apply the product and to remove it?


Our Solitude is 13.5 ft tall. I didn't want to deal with a ladder and maybe get hurt.
The long, strong pole is very easy to use. There is a 2 sided "mop type head" that you apply with on side and wipe clean with the other.

Thanks for the feedback. Our Bighorn is that tall. We use a pole brush to wash it, so doing the same to wax makes sense.

Does anyone know if this stuff protects against UVs? My front cap on my last FW faded out in less than 2 years, even after waxing every 6 months.

While I have not used mine yet, the bottle reads "will leave UV protection on aircraft, vehicles, and RVS.

Lots of products have UV protectant, but keeping your front cap from fading, is asking a lot. The guys using it say it is good stuff, and are credible guys IMO! [emoticon]

Sun is a killer period. One side of our FW decals were so faded we decided instead to replace them with laminated decals. Expensive, but we intend to keep our FW and have had it since new in 2010.

You can wax a front cap monthly and it will still fade over time. Only way to avoid is paint

For those of us that use wash wax all, how many have tried then bug scrubbers? I purchased a pack of these - Bug Scrubbers..

ALl I can say is OMG ! ! ! Spray Wash wax all, let sit of few minutes, respray, and use the bug scrubber... they came right off.... No elbow grease.. I could not believe it
