First cleaning

Well, I finally sucked it up today and cleaned the Salem for the first time. I think I need to hire some college kids for the waxing process, but that's a whole 'nother weekend to worry about. At this point, I'm just glad it's cleaned. Plus I'm not sure what kind of roofing material I have, so I don't want to put the wrong stuff on it. More research needed...

Of course, getting up on the roof gave me some new questions to ask. There's a lot of "stuff" on that roof, and I'm the type that needs to know what everything is and how it works, so here goes: Of course, ID-ing the AC unit is easy, the bathroom skylight, the black tank vent (next to the skylight), the radio and TV antennaes, and what looks like part of the refrigerator (right above the fridge vent on the side.) But then there was another vent next to that (identical to the black tank vent) and another one back near the radio. Do the gray and galley tanks also have their own vent tubes? I thought it was just the black...everything else was identifiable. TIA.

Anyone have any sources for cheap labor for waxing?

You should have a separate vent for each holding tank. Sounds like you got all of the those roof stuff figured out....there are a lot of tripping hazards up there.
