    Does she wax? She doesn't even dust!

    Quote from Terry Pratchett's "Unseen Academicals" just to grab attention, now for the actual topic.

    The manual supplied with Artoo0 recommends treating with a "Romahome approved wax" but doesn't actually name any.

    Does anyone out there know which they might be?

      Someone on here used Collinite wax for boats and was very pleased with it.
      The Collinite wax for cars is very highly thought of so I guess the boat wax would be ideal

              As far as I know the polish has to be silicon free.

                Could you explain why you say that
                when Ant from Avon Motor Caravans who is a Romahome specialist recomends two types of polish that contain a high amount of silicone!!

                  Hmmmm, now you have got me. I remember doing some googling research on polish 3 - 4 years ago and at the time a lot of marine polishes for use on GRP boat hulls were silicon free (they made it a selling point). Additionally I recently got a quote for a professional wash and polish for my R25 and they used a specially imported RV polish from the USA, which was silicon free.

                  I now struggle to polish the van, hence the approach for a profession job, but have owned Romahomes for over 20 years and have never been happy with the condition of the bodywork once they get over 6 years old.

                        Hi folks.

                        Thanks for all the info.

                        I have to admit that I've done nothing about this so far, due to having to dig lots of holes in an attempt to sort out a waterlogged garden.

                        I'll report back as soon as I get the act together, but don't hold your breath!

                          I have been using Meguiar's Gold Class Liquid Wax, available from Halfords, on my Hylo. It was recommended by a friend and I think it is fantastic. It is easy to put on, gives a brilliant, deep shine that lasts. The surface of the Romahome is noticeably more slippery, so much so that when standing on the steps and leaning on the roof to apply the polish you find yourself sliding down the roof. A built-in danger, be aware! Flies do not stick on anything like they used to, very easy to remove the few that stay on. Highly recommended. Graham and Carole

                            Stopping the suicidal flies sticking is my number one priority so that sounds just what I'm looking for!

                            And we have a nearby Halfords.

                            Thanks v. much
