I washed her yesterday in anticipation of our trip this weekend. I swear it gets longer every time I clean it up.

It was cold and windy last weekend, I wanted to clean her up but it will have to wait. We are heading out on Saturday for a week in ours.

Replaced my LP/CO detector after the old one aged out/expired. It's last straw was back in January when I made limoncello.

The only hassle was that he old one was surface mounted and this one was flush mounted. But I was able to easily cut a new hole in the thin board.

Wash and wax outside. One did the awning, others didn't.

$10/ft in Key West and Las Vegas.

Each time, we do a walk around and I'll point out a couple of things. They've cleaned each one to the point it's spotless by the time they and I are done.

I guess I did get a deal. Initially he quoted $220, but once he saw it said he wouldn't be able to for that price.

$10/ft is dirt cheap compared to what I'm paying up here in Canada....$20/ft (but that's in Canadian dollars ). I've only found a couple companies here east of Toronto that offer a completely mobile service. They bring their own water, power and everything else. Price includes hand wash (including the roof and awning), polish and wax. They use Klasse and Collinite products which I understand are fairly high end products. I have them booked for May 18th. This is the first time I'm using them so we'll see how they do. It definitely needs more than I can achieve using the RV Wash ‘N Shine product I've been using.
