Cleaning Day

Decided since nobody was home today it was a good day to clean the Roo. It took me about 5 hrs and was worth it. I washed the outside twice, cleaned the frame even put wax on it, waxed the outside and all the bumper, pulled the wheels off and cleaned the inside of the wheels, took the propane tanks off and cleaned everything related to propane tanks and cleaned both sides of the awning.

In the inside started from the back and clean everything from top to bottom. Even pull access panels and vacuumed all the wood shaving left over from the build.

Use to do the same thing with are pop up and that's way it still looks brand new..

Now that's what I call attention to detail. Looks great! What do you charge for a 35' fifth wheel?

How did you get it all done in only 5 hrs. It takes me that long just to wax our TT.

Sounds great ~ you know, a TT isn't an investment that gains value so taking really good care of it makes good sense (or should I say cents?)

Looks awesome and now you know exactly what's in there and what you need to add

I had help with the wheels.. I used a friends driveway to jack up the trailer. So he helped me pull the off and clean them. While he cleaned the wheels I was under the trailer cleaning the frame. When my little girl got home from a friends house she helped me wash it kind of

Also when I start working I don't stop till I am done.

Very nice. I had strong intentions of cleaning our Roo's exterior, but it stayed in storage. I did refill the propane tanks in preparation for our trip next weekend.

The inside is clean as I brought in the shop vac and got to town last weekend. Did the usual, wipe down, sweep, mop, etc. after each trip.

The outside needs the work next to round, no doubt.

We always do the same before we leave the campground.. Since we haven't used it in 2 months and it was at the Topper for 3 weeks it needed cleaning

The only thing that sucks about Toppers service department is the inside of the trailer gets dirty. I don't know what they do but they get gravel all over the inside and the floor will turn socks black.
