Question Exterior maintenance

Another question. What types of things have you found
that work well to clean the exterior of your camper. Mine
I believe is alumium, not fiberglass.
Thanks

Nina



P.S. Buy the way if you have not figured it out, I am
having trouble uploading pictures on the site. Any tips
would be greatly appreciated.

regular carwash soap and a long-handled soft bristle brush

as for pics: when you create a thread or reply to one below the submit reply button is an additional options box. in there is a manage attachments button, click on that and another little window will open with 5 browse buttons, click on one and browse to where you have your pic located on your PC. do this for each pic then click the upload button. when the upload is done there will be a close window click. then all you gotta do is click the final submit or submit reply button

let me know if'n this is clear enough

Haven't yet found a great product for those darn black streaks, but find those orange-oil cleaners (Fantastic Orange for example) do pretty good.

Nina, I've been wondering.... what's the DH and DW stand for in your siggie?

Greg,

Did another post following your instructions.
It did work.
Now I know how to put pic's as an attachment
in a post.
But can you also tell me how to put a picture in
as a part of your signature?
Also, how to set up photo album?

Thanks in advance for all your help,
Nina

For the picture in every post, like mine, Take a pic you want to use and make a really small copy of it using whatever photo editing software you have. It has to be 150 by 150 pixels or 117.2 KB (whichever is smaller). Then you go into User CP and click 'edit avatar', choose option two and upload that little pic. Click save and voila!!

Should have guessed the Dear Hubby thing.... Awww that's so sweet.

Nina. When I had an aluminum camper we use to used a spray cleaner called Reliable, simple green, or purple muscle. It's sold at some of the RV stores and some of the campgrounds. It disolved black streaks and you just wipe it off no rinsing. I still use it for the black streaks on the fiberglass. Depending on the finish whether it's smooth or texured. If smooth aluminum I used spray or liquid wax if its textured I didn't put anything on it. A lot of times now I use Protect all wash which needs no rinsing then wax afterward.

I have found that the Fantastic Orange (comercial grade) sold at home depot does the job for all of the above. Make sure it is the "Comercial" grade.
