What did you do to your camper today?

Cleaned my Roof with Dawn dish detergent and water but is there any way to get the Lee spots off the roof, looks like water spots? This is the first time I have cleaned it and bought it used so I assume previous owner never cleaned it.

I am going to try a small spot with Oxi-Clean but afraid it might damage the membraneClick image for larger version

The wife wants a new Cardinal, she loves the furniture and layout. We couldn't strike a deal during the busy selling season so we moved our loveseat from the house into the RV. She is haaapppyyy. Loveseat fit perfect, 100% more comfortable, looks better and they're electric. Now we'll wait to the winter and see if we can get her the new Cardinal.

I use the Protectall roof system. The cleaner works fantastic and you follow it up with their roof treatment. Easy, fast, and doesn't leave streaks down the side of your rig.

Will need to try that? I was wondering if that stuff RV Geeks recommended works but looks like the stuff you use works. I just want it as clean as possible so I remove some old lap sealant and put some fresh stuff on top to keep everything looking clean and sealed.

Yep this stuff works better and easier than anything I've used. My roof is almost 6 years old and it looks like new after using this cleaner and then the conditioner. I just used a sponge for most of it, and a brush for a few, small, stubborn spots.

Does it make the roof slippery be I don't have slide toppers so I go on the roof to brush them off at CG's and want to make sure I don't slip

No, the treatment doesn't make the roof slippery after it dries. It feels like the regular rubber roof.

How symbolic. The missing man formation. Brings a tear to my eye.
Actually is that the missing man formation? Maybe one of a few missing man formations.

Sewer storage

today I did like others have done and installed a sewer hose holder made from 5X5 fence post cover under the rig and then split a 4X4 post cover to make a tray to put the sewer hose in overall I'm pleased with how it turned out. My sewer hose won't fit in the bumper so I put my awning hold poles and tie straps there instead.

How did I do that up there. /\ I posted a response to a post which wasn't posted yet. Maybe I need to go buy a lotto ticket.

Today I helped a fellow camper recover from last nights super storm event at a mid Tennessee KOA. Tornados all around us leaving some minor damage in the full campground. Awning poles are on his to-do list now....right after new awning material & new frame supports.

Is that not the old style awning! Awning poles not required, all he has to do is unhook at the bottom and stake out, then strap down, is it not?

Or simply tie it down.

It can be done that way but then all the pressure is applied to the awning. Using an awning pole means all pressure is transferred to the pole. The awning doesn't have any downward or upward pressure on it. It doesn't even know the poles are there.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

I noticed that and I was wondering the same thing!

Maybe "great minds think alike?"
