I've used a Back to Black (Meguire's, possibly) liquid from Walmaer in the past. I just put some Meguire's liquid Marine &RV cleaner/wax on ours last week with a random orbital buffer using a foam pad. There was no residue. Surprised how nice it turned out - actually shines like new.

DW and I painted our skirt. I did all prep by light sanding,removing fenders and every thing I could remove was removed. DW rolled paint on with smooth nap roller and we think it looks great. Have had a lot of complements on it.

Oh yea. The black molding above the skirt was purchased from Trekwood to replace the terrible white molding.

I use Turtle Wax Ice Spray Wax. Use it on all the surfaces.

It is oil base. DW not here but think it was Valspar from Lowes. I took the propane door to get them to color match the color.
