25DS Wax Job Time


A 25DS takes about 7 hours to wax properly!

Add another 1.5 hours to wash it well prior to the wax!

Add another 1.5 hours to de-winterize, prep and clean the interior!

So, over 2 days, I spent 10 hours getting that baby ready to roll for the Spring! Leaving this Friday for a weekend trip - 1st in 3 months.

I hand waxed it with Nu-Finish. Used about 80% of the bottle and that was applied liberally. Nu-Finish wasn't my first choice but the MacGuires RV wax wasn't available. We'll see how long it lasts cause I really don't want to have to go through the process again in 6 months. Nu-Finish got rid of the light water marks and a lot of the blemishes in the paint. Slick as a baby's bottom now! Wax in the shade, 1 section at a time, wait 15 minutes and wipe off with a quality fiber cloth. Easy squeezy! Be prepared for numbness and soreness in the wrists about 3 hours in!

I also installed the Roadmaster Reflex Steering Stabilizer. It makes a world of difference! The Cheap Handling Fix seemed to cut down the 'rolling' of the RV and also a little bit of the wind/push/pull from big rigs but the RRSS did the rest! If the CHF is 10 times better than stock, the RRSS is 100 times better than stock. $400.00 was well worth it and took about 45 minutes total, with test drive and repositioning on the tie-rod included. Make sure you're on flat-level ground and that the tires are perfectly straight. My tires were a little off so it was pulling a bit to the left the first go-round.
