If I am washing my car and I am near the trailer, I may spray the bugs off the front. That's pretty much the only washing it gets.

I just discovered Mequire's Ultimate Wash and Wax, as noted in my post by the same name. Loved it, and it's relatively easy. Available at Walmart.

+1 on the Meguires. Best car wash soap I have ever used. I Buy the big hug at Costco and have a brush that attaches to my house for water. The brush has a soap reservoir built into the head.

I have used Turtle Wax car wash for years. No need to change. If extra dirty I will add some Purple Power. Takes black streaks off.

I use the wash/wax all system. Do not need water and is easy to use.
Has a complete system:

Gel Gloss wash and wax. Been using for years. Had prior MH 15 years and still looked great when sold it. Never used anything else.

CW wants $41 for a gallon. Exact same product is available from Home Depot for $19.48, free shipping to a store for you to pick up.

I've used WashWax All for the last three years. Easy fast and very good.. Look at Aero Cosmetics website. Has videos that were very helpful. Great stuff.

Just don't use anything with harsh chemicals. I wash mine down with Blue Coral. Then get after it with Mothers cleaning wax and a buffer.

I've used Blue Coral on all my RV's and cars for 20 years. Never needed waxing after the wash. I do mix it way stronger than recommended and the shine lasts 6 months. We bought our toad in 2001 and it has sat outside for 18 years. Never used anything but Blue Coral all these years and the paint looks new.
