Thanks again in advance.

I am a complete newbie - so I have no clue. It is brand new - about 3 weeks old. So I don't know if it gets polished when it comes off the production line (which for us was 2/14/14). Just felt we would give it a good wash and wax or polish or whatever we need to do! Thanks!

Blue Magic is an abrasive polish for uncoated aluminum. You DO NOT want to use it on a new trailer. This type of polish is used on trailers from about 1964 back or newer ones where the protective coating has been purposely removed.

you will be polishing the sealant- clearcoat. So use a paste car wax to do that. A metal polish will hurt that finish.

As for BlueMagic...try ToolBox Polish ..you can get it at Lowe's,,tons of folks here use it on the bare aluminum it works great for a first pass and touchups

BY the way you can polish a newer trailer...it just need the clearcoat removed first, and may not be worth all that extra work.

I've been playing with Blue Magic and I must say it had it pros and cons. It's a pretty good product if your doing yearly buff. But if you have scratches or niks. Its not gonna get them out. Its more of a "topper" polish.

Just finished polishing my 25' Tradewind today with 3 jars of blue magic in 14 hours. Last polish was 3 years ago. Did a nice job, wasn't aggressive enough to remove every blemish but pleased overall with the reults.
