A wash and Wax day!

Wow! Am I ever tired. It's day's like today when I'm glad to own a 21 footer instead of a monster fiver or bus. I don't know how you guy's wash and wax your big rigs. Mine was a near all day event. I used the old hand rubbed paste wax from Turtle wax. I think it will be easier the next time, as it had no wax at all on it before today and was a pain to get rubbed off. Anyway, here is a few pix of my lil girl.

Wow! Shiney and Clean!
Hand wax! Nice! We have a 34' TT. First year, had it done at dealer.
Second year paid a kid. Last year, spray and rinse cheat. I'm hoping to get ambitious this year. Yikes.

Today is roof treatment day. Ugh. I hate going up there, but the UV blocker has to go down. Then wash and wax after it dries.

Did the same. All by hand in a 34 ft 5r. Good news, I found a non stainless screw that should not be where it is. I also found a spot where a bead of caulk was missed and needed. Used NuFinish liquid. So far, impressed, nut will see how long it really lasts. Went on easy but found that a damp cloth for removal worked best. Do not use sponge to apply as it creates swirls. Use terry cloth that it damp for application. Happy camping all...
