If the surface is painted and not textured I would go with Meguirers Ultimate Compound.  If it is a textured surface you could go with a back to black treatment.

Along this same train of thought ... I’ve recently purchased a 2008 Wakesetter 23 “lsv...I’d like to know what the illusion XS tower is coated with and since I don’t have a cover for the tower and it will be outside all the time ... recommendations?

It is powder coated.

Thanks Cazan. So what does this mean for care... is there a spray or something needed to help it remain uncovered year round or just wipe it down every so often?

Or should it be waxed once a year and if so, what wax do all of you with similar towers recommend?

If it is powdercoated and now oxidized, you could try StarBrite Oxidation Remover.  Works great on FG, but do test it out in an inconspicuous spot.

Thanks Eagleboy99. It’s not oxidized yet... just looking to protect it through winter and ongoing :)

I just put of coat of wax on it same stuff I use on the boat.  I just did the boat and tower today.  I had some left over 3M boat wax I used after I refurbished my gel coat last year.  Seemed to last a decent amount of time.  Of course I have a custom side skirt and use Hot sauce after every use so it doesn’t strip the wax.  

As far as which wax...if you do a search on here there are several different threads on that topic. Lots of opinions on it.  As long as it’s a quality brand your good.

Ok, sounds like waxing is on the agenda for the next dry day here :)
