Not sure how long this has been around. Another camper told us about it yesterday and showed us a bottle. He has a 10 year old Tour DP that looks like new and claimed that is what he has been using. I was suspicious and told him about my recent experience with F11. He said after using it for awhile he found rain doesn't wash it off and it seems to last a long time. Here is their site but you can of course buy it off Amazon:


What say ye? Anyone try this product yet? I may be willing to give it a try for under $20.00.

Based on over 3,000 reviews and getting 5 of 5 stars, I bought some. It'll be here on Tuesday. I'll let you know how it works!

I went "all in"...bought the whole kit. Have been using it for over a year...great results. I really like the expandable pole...also use it with bug scrubber for the windshield.

I have used the product for the past two years. Here is what I can tell you. If your coach is dirty meaning it has not been cleaned in a while and has a visible layer of dirt, do not use it first. You will get scratches in your paint. Wash your coach first or even rinse it with a hard stream of water first and then apply wash wax all. The wash wax mop is fantastic for getting up near the top. Don't over use the product on the wet side and change the wash wax microfiber attachments very frequently. You just switch the dry side to the wet side on the mop head and put a new one on the dry side. Obviously, where I can reach I just use really good microfiber towels and Costco has very good ones at a good price. You can do the coach in about 1.5 hours allowing for breaks etc.

Good points Sheridany...I agree with everything you said. Particularly, if dirty do a quick wash first.

Have been using the product for several years but never on a real dirty coach. It’s great for touching up light road film or cleaning a dusty coach after morning dew has left a few streaks. The extendable pole with microfiber pads is great!

I used the product on my last coach for 2 years with good result. I agree do not use on dirty coach without getting layer of dirt off first. I learned there are different grades to microfiber clothes, only use good one or you end up with scratches. Good product to have in the cleaning arsenal.

Terry, two of my buddies and I all ordered F-11. We are now just using it to clean up our motorcycles after rides. It goes on easy and looks good, however rain will wash it off pretty quickly.

I guess what I'm really wanting to know about this Wash-Wax product is it just more of the same? If you go over the entire coach with it can you then wash the coach over a 3 month period and the stuff is still protecting? Or is this stuff more like an instant spray on wax that really doesn't last very long. Maybe the bottom line is does anyone think this is a replacement for actually waxing your coach once or twice a year?

No it doesn’t replace regular waxing, very little wax properties

What is your experience with F-11, I just bought some and have not used it yet.

I use REJEX, & have found that this is an excellent product! Easy to apply, & lasts. After using it, just rinse & dry! Original use was for aircraft. One bottle, have done two 38' coaches, a Colorado, & a GMC Terrain, and about 1/3 of the bottle left!

This is my belief after using the product for a couple of years. I believe that it doesn’t replace good sealant like Nu-Finish/Rejex in protecting your coach. I do believe it’s great product use between waxing to keep your coach looking good. I don’t believe that lasts more than a month or two. My routine is hand wax once a year and uses Wash Wax All once a month during my traveling months. You have to watch what you use on top of sealants, a lot products are solvent based and will remove the sealant including other sealants.

I was not surprised that Newmar/BASF recommends against using dish soap and promotes baby shampoo with vinegar. I have used a soft brush to wash the coach for years and see that Newmar put the warning in bold letters not use one and only lambswool to wash the coach. They also recommend against any kind of wash and wax combos. Also, BASF and Newmar promote the use of a squeegee for RVs to dry the surface which I have used for years on RV since it has all the flat surfaces. I don’t use the Squeegee that Newmar recommends but use on the one in the link below.

It is not a replacement. It‘s temporary protection and not a replacement for a machine or hand applied product.

My Wash/Wax All kit arrived today and I got a chance to do one side of the coach. Didn't take long and it looks pretty darn good. I don't see me doing this at home so much, but I sure see me using it at the campground or RV site while Trish is busy reading her Readers Digest. Which by the way is a great little mag to take on your RV trips. :)
