What kind of polishing tools do you use to keep your coach shiny and protected?
And how has it held up over time?

Ok. Please forgive my ignorance here. It appears that this is only used to apply the wax or polish (according to the Chemical Guys). They stil recommend it be removed with the microfiber towel. So, what is the advantage of usinfg this tool, as opposed to applying the wax or polish by hand? It seems to me, that removing it is the more difficult and strenuous task.

You can apply with whatever you want, the removal is the PITA part of the process and I think the proper polisher not only makes the job easier but it may do a better job in the end. I'm not a detailing expert. If you can, stay on top of your coach with Wasn Wax All and you probably won't need anything else. I'm certified lazy and therefore need to do a more robust waxing annually.

I use WWA constantly. I wash at the beginning and end of the season and try to wax with Rejex. Then I use WWA on the road and wahsh with a wash and wax product, before each trip.

Are you saying you remove the wax with the polisher?

I wash the coach, apply the wax which I think I do by hand with a pad, then remove with the polisher. It's been a while and as I'm out west where this is an abundance of labor to do this for me I had it washed/waxed in Tucson. Washed twice in Casa Grande. Now I'm dirty again! Why????
