On a good note, I had the propane topped off as it was at half a tank. The meter didn't run so the guy who topped me off didn't charge me as he didn't know how much he put in. I told him to charge me for a half tank and after a couple minutes of discussion he still wouldn't charge me.

Oh, I thought you said you "got the RV washed." That's much easier! LOL

Did a complete wash including roof and applied a coat of REJEX to it. First time using REJEX and I am satisfied with how it went on, came off and the gloss it left. Time will tell how it holds up...

This thing is 13 ft tall and over 30 ft long, I'll try but it will take a couple of days to get it done with a brush

One should use a car soap. Dawn or bug remover chemicals can remove the wax. Not a problem if you are waxing afterwards but not in between waxes. Meguiar's Car wax every 6 months makes washing the TT a much easier proposition. Doing small areas ensure that dust does not collect and get in the wax.

I use the waterless car wash kit from washwax.com. Does a great job.

Simple Green best all around cleaner.

When we stayed 10 days at an RV resort in Yuma AZ this February they had a couple of guys that roamed the park doing wash jobs. For total $60 they washed both my 32ft fifth wheel and my truck. They did the roof, squeegeed the windows, etc. I watched and although they used a power washer, it was set very low (I checked it).

I think it was bargain.

Simple Green works great as a pre-wax cleaner to remove the dirt and black streaks. I've been using Collinite Super Doublecoat No. 476 for several years now. I first learned about it on Car Care Forums: Meguiar's Online - News & Announcements. It's a carnauba wax with the durability of a sealant. Lots of good reviews. After waxing, dishing washing soap is good enough to clean.
