I am a big fan of any product that says one step......if it comes with three bottles and says apply each, I consider it an insult...lol....I started at top front around 5am this morning....sprayed and brushed......one thing I have started using....is I put my roof conditioner in a 1 gallon yard sprayer bottle and use a telescope soft nylon brush...saves a little time.........do the same thing with my soap....I put some in a bucket to dip brush, put I take the soap sprayer and soak the outside......I hate bending down....lol...about once every 90 days or so, I spray the rubber seals with silicone spray......I try to lube everything either going or coming....outside of that, I let my wife handle the inside....

I think I am going to tell kids instead of birthday, fathers day, or christmas gifts they can clean it for me or hire a professional...of course if it involves manual labor they may not visit.....lol..lol...

Thanks...I passed on to the new owners about the FRF forum and it's benefits but the husband is a long time dirt track racer and tows a triple axle with front living qtrs trailer all over the state, so they probably will be fine

I'm definetly sticking around FRF forum but not married to only shopping for FR MH's!

I hope you got the one with the donut light on top so you don't have to pull your colors down at night. I know that you wouldn't let them up without one unless your out with Turbs at 4:00AM......

Washed and waxed it. About 5 hours to do it all. Used a spray wax on the sides and back (eagle one nano wax) and meguiars carnauba wax on the front cap.

Very Nice!!
Did you mount the power ports in the skirt area? Would like to do this as currently have to run an ext cord to plug USB charger into it.

I had the original antenna on my 04, I took antenna mast all apart and lubed gears with silicone spray and replaced the antenna with a Jack replacement head, while parked at home the old antenna pulled 2 channels which faded in and out, I now get 22 clear channels. I can't wait to get out and see what happens. Also had to replace AC shroud.
Happy camping to all

Yes, in the skirt. My 110 is at the back corner and I was using an extension cord, too. Had to make sure no one tripped on the cord coming out the door.

One big one on each side for maximum storage. I left enough room on top to add a tray for the flip up.
