wow, thanks for the education. my puma has graphics on the metal sides. what do y'all recommend for cleaning and shining? i've read a lot of posts. to use dishwashing liquid, 303 stuff for awning and possibly roof, all i've done so far is just power rinse the TH, i haven't "scrubbed" it down yet. kinda scared of the graphics so i'm needing your advice.

Scrubbed??? I use a nylon covered sponge often called a "bug pad" found
in the automotive isle of your favorite store.
I use a normal car wash sponge most every where but use the bug pad
on the front end to get the bugs.
I wouldn't recommend "scribbing" any graphics but you can always try
your method on a little corner somewhere and check the results B 4
proceeding.

scrubbed was meant to imply just a tad of elbow grease and effort rather than just using a jet nozzle on my water hose to "blast"/rinse stuff off.

Just finished washing the 5er with Armorall ultra wash and wax. The roof and the rest of the rig look great. The water bided up and was easy to dry with just a squidgy. I waxed the front cap with Meguiar’s for some extra protection, dressed the tires and treated the slide seals. I’m ready for summer.

I tried the armor all wash and wax on the truck and TT today. wasn't all that impressed. Really didn't like the awesome on the trailer either but it did do a good job with the roof. we were really struggling with baked on black streaks until my neighbor came out and showed us what to use. he runs a car detailing service on the side. He lent us his compound it started taking those black streaks right off. We will finished the compound job and wax it tomorrow, we spent over 5hrs on it before my neighbor got home and showed us.

Used the Awesome on my TT yesterday and took the black streaks off with no problem. It does leave a soapy film but washed right off.
