Alumbright or other chemicals

Has anyone ever used the product "Alumbright" on the exterior?

Also what about cleaning solvents for the skin? Is any one product recommended over others?

JohnG,
When you say "cleaning solvents", you're indicating something stronger than just a common detergent, for example, like "Joy or Dawn".
There has been numerous threads on the subject of cleaning, polishing, and preserving the results of same~ (Plse take a look at these sites)It's been generally accepted that, you shouldn't use anything on the Airstream's skin which contains a high acidity level, or ammonia products. (If you do use any of these, be sure to risen it off well~!)
This list may includes petrolum products as well.
What you do use depends on your goals and, the actual condition of your unit's surface. Read, & read, then evaluate your needs accordingly`
Again, welcome to the forum..
ciao

I was talking about Walburize (Probably misspelled) for cleaning the skin.

I have used Alunbright to polish mag wheels, but was wondering if that would be too harsh for the skin of an Airstream.

Yep, the correct spelling is: Walbernize (no biggie)

I've never used the stuff..
The thing is..Just what are you trying to do? If all you want is to clean your unit and, make it look nice, then just stick with using Walbernize several times a year. If your unit's clearcoat is flaking, oxidized, has really bad scratched, etc..Then the approach is very much different..
Unless you're willing to spend a huge effort of time and money to bring it to a show-room state, I'd say..just clean it..And enjoy it..There's thousand of units out there that look no better or worse than the next.
Hope this helps..
ENJOY your 4th`!
ciao
