I use what Oliver recommends this ASI 335 - and have been happy with it. Do an online search for the best price.
I also wax but never use a buffer on decals only a clean Terry cloth.

If you don't wax those decals, you will have one heck of a time getting bugs and other "stuff" off.

I always give my decals a bit of extra wax just to make sure they are as "sealed" as I can get them.

Do you compound before you wax or just wax  ?

Thank you 

Depends.  On a new trailer I don’t think there’s a need.  On one that has some oxidation, maybe depending on how much.  I have a couple of times, probably every 2 to 3 years for me.  I’m considering the ceramic thing, those trailers look great.  Mike

I wax over my decals.

I have a 2018 Elite II and I have never seen any oxidation (like I would see in my past older boats) on the fiberglass but in the spring there is some dark water stains on the sides that come off the roof (I guess from dirt on the roof) after sitting all winter.

A good wash lightens the  water stains and I then use the Meguiars 67 One step compound. A light application takes off the water stains very easily.

I then put on a coat of the Flagship Professional Marine Wax.
