Folks, We (my son and I) just spent a whopping 10 hours washing, waxing and doing the roof (cleaning and treating). I hate this once a year task....

Hey Sean! I too wax mine, really good once a year then I pick at it all year long with Dri-Wash and Guard. Being the nut that I am, I wash it every time I come home from a trip and usually before we leave...Gotta keep the image up! Being an ex boater, old habits die hard!

I also wax once a year and use Thetford Wash-n-Wax every time to keep it looking nice.

I do wash it either when we get home or right before we leave. The road grime just kills me.

And this new coach is dark so ALL the dirt just shows up...

You guys make me tired just reading this!

Due to asthma, I have been hiring mine done but need to rethink this and do it myself in small doses.

Sean, I love the new dark colors...I really do. but I can imagine how nuts I would go because the dark shows all the dust and dirt. Maybe I should be happy with my light color, huh?

After all that work, it is very rewarding to look at the coach and see how beautiful it is...if only for a few hours!

It's really a neccessity here in Florida to keep it protected somehow. The sun is brutal (storage facility has no shade) and will fade the finish quick if not protected.

So I labor away once a year and use wash-n-wax every time I clean it.
