I use Collinite as well, supposed to last for 6 months and I try to get a coat on in that range.

Has really been about 8 months since my last application, had some mods that the wax would have interefered with (that was my excuse anyway)

I use LC Orange (Light Cut) with Meguiars #83 for cleaning, then do a polishing pad with M9 swirl remover, LC Blue pad with M3 machine glaze and finally finishing pad with Collinite 845.

I park in the garage about 50%, more than that and my wife will get irritated.

You are probably right on the money, need to wax more often.
If so I will have to change my routine and only do the Collonite every other waxing.
This weekend took 14 hours, pretty respectable with a truck this size.
