warning thread hijack: you are not far from me... We are in mebane. Which CG at Jordan are you hitting? Where did you buy from? We bought at Plemmons in Raleigh.

Back on topic: We wash the fiver at the blue beacon in haw river since it is really close to us and then wax ourselves. For the type of siding you are talking about, we used to wash our tt like this ourselves. We would compound the black streaks off then wax. Then we learned the key is keeping the roof clean and us I g caulk to seal up the seams in the rain gutters. It cut way down on those pesky black streaks.

I use a product from Streak Master called "wash and protect".It cuts road dirt,tree sap and just about anything,but does not damage any finishes or graphics.It leaves a polimer coating on that is more durable than most wax.I use it as directed,diluteing it 14 to 1 about every other week.It sheets water well and dirt/grime does not stick and in many cases can be hosed off between washes. I found this product when I was researching products for our horse trailers a few years ago.It can only be bought on line.I have tried most of the automotive and camper "Wash& Wax products and this stuff is far superior. No I do not work for Streak Master or sell thier products.

Asquared - not sure where at Lake Jordan - wifey made the reservation. Since the TT is new Im going to try to keep it clean. The suggestion of keeping the roof clean makes sense to me. I'm just going to use my Mcguires soap I use for the truck and the same with the wax. We will see how that goes.

Thanks for all the tips guys (and gals). Appreciate it and I appreciate the forum.
