No idea how it went on or off, but I did see them using power buffers- if that helps.

I can ask on their Facebook page if y'all would like.
Might as well ask and get your $$'s worth!

I do the routine washing of the roof and entire rig at least three times a season but have not waxed this one yet....bought some Meguires marine/rv wax for when the weather warms up here in Ohio...probably will NOT use a buffer, just good old elbow grease for me 💪

Slide Out Motor

spent most of the day figuring out what was going on with one of my slide outs. The darn thing worked perfectly the whole time in alaska, been back since September and has bee n parked and covered since then. Today prepping for our trip to Florida on the 5th of Jan. After switching controllers from one slide out to another, believe we have a bad motor and a bad controller on the same slide out....

Getting closer to my solar install. Ordered 4 160w grape PVs today, picked up 4 Trojan t145s, and installed the magnum remote monitor and the Tristar monitor. Working on the battery box now.

In your case it was Meguiar's and it was applied with dual action polishers( a very safe way for a gel/clear coat finishes)

Other than the price, I'd strongly recommend them. But, the price (to me) reflects the quality of work. This camper hasn't looked this good since the day we bought it!

Today I:
1) Added a Water Heater Tank Drain Valve.
2) Finished my - Rotating the Dinette Table and easier mounting Design. Eliminating the Dinette Table "Wobble". That was nice.
3) Went through all my 12 Volt Fuses and figured out which ones controlled what items, Lights, Fans, etc. And made a list so I can attach it to the panel.
4) Ran my HEAT, it was cold here in Baltimore.... Burned off the dust and cleared the smoke detector, and alarms. What a pain....
5) Charged my Battery.
6) Checked my Propane Tank Levels, 1 needs to be re-filled.
7) Extended my awning, to dry it out.
8) Man.... I'm tired.......

Appreciate the report there Fabio! I've been using Protect All. Applying with a microfiber towel and wiping it off with a microfiber towel. I'm slow, I know, but it will take me 6 hours to do everything. I'm thinking about buying a buffer but am leery of scratching the gel coat. This can has been kicked down the road before, so thanks for looking into what they did. When your rig shines, it feels better.
Kind of like getting a haircut. Hint , hint.

New Years Eve

1 Routed a rear view antenna booster on outside to back of 5th wheeler to the side to have clear distant to reduce drop signal.
2. Replaced Bauer Keyless electronic door latch with their latest version. This was a warranty replacement. The new one has extra feature and more metal.
3. Refilled propane.
4. Tow vehicle, wash and detail, and drained the water trap. Diesel was clean and dry after my 2500 mile trip from Disney World. I buy only from Truck Stops.

I put the snow boots on the TV, which they helped save me. Some dude in a pickup couldn't stop on a grade at a stop sign, and slid out into the main Rd. Luckily, no one was coming the other way, and I was able to swerve, and stuck to the road.


Also got 2 new RamMounts, one for my phone, one for my tablet. I tried them out. Image is deceiving, but the top of the tablet is still before my hood line, so it obstructs nothing.


Then, I fixed what broke on the last camping trip. Needless to say, our campers are not over engineered. Fat Butt here broke the frame on the dinette. I don't think it is going anywhere now. Next, replacing the paper thin wood on top with something a bit thicker.
