Absolutely. You have several alternatives.

If your cleaner has removed oxidation, and the surface is smooth to the touch, you can use the Pure Brazilian Carnauba Wax. But, I'd suggest you go with the Brazilian Carnauba Cleaner Wax, as the cleaners will be useful in future applications to help with removal of bugs, tree sap, etc.

I would assume you're using a dual action buffer and not by hand. A foam pad would be appropriate, and preferred to a terry cloth bonnet.

I'd consider ordering a gallon of product instead of buying a bunch of consumer size bottles - it'd be cheaper.

Good luck. Nice pusher and welcome to waxforum.

Also I think Mothers spray wax would be great for touch up, quick to use and protects very well.

Beautiful rig!

Thank you
Its been about 3 years since it was last waxed, but gets a good washing as needed.

I was concerend if i should go with the CA gold step one through three and get all the small tree limb touches out and dead bugs or go with the one you recommended.

I have a buffer
the rv is just toooo big otherwise
thanks

I'd go buffer with a foam pad/bonnet and one step cleaner wax.

ok boys and girls some updated pics
went ahead and used the paste cleaner wax (Brazilian)
this stuff goes on so smooth, and actually wiped and buffed off real nice
temps were 55 when i started and 73 when i finished the drivers side.
waiting on the pass side to dry over and get to wiping and buffing

all done
i will say it was long, but not nearly as hard as the first polish when we picked her up some 5 years ago, after she sat over year outside

thanks for the advice

Showtime Instant Detailer will not remove the wax.

There's no need to rewax unless you enjoy spending time outside.
