Fire extinguisher

I would like to know what size extinguisher the members carry in their rig besides the one that came with your respective rig.
Thanks.

I recently spent an afternoon making my bounder windshield flawless. I washed it with incurable invisible glass.. Razor bladed it. 0000 steel wooled it clayed it and then put 3 coats of rainex on it. It turned out awesome. Good luck

No one mentioned windshield preparation.

Use OOOO steel wool on your w/s till you feel the smoothness. Make sure it is 4/O.

Then coat your windshield with Rain-X or Amway hard surface protectant.

The results are fantastic.

Check this out on YouTube.

I used to use Rainex until two years ago when I switched to Rejex. It works as well plus I can put it on the front of he coach. It makes bugs easier to get off. Anything is better than nothing.

It's Rain-X, not Rainex.

Rainex for the last 20 years. Especially amazing during a Florida downpour.

I did this after what seemed to be excessive Rain-X buildup on the glass caused the wipers to "Judder". Each time a wiper would pause or stick, a black line appeared on the glass. I stopped using Rain-X after this occurred a few times, but may go back since it really works (unless the wipers judder again).

Years ago,I drove in rain from Detroit MI to Florida and experienced rain the whole distance. I used wipers only when "road fog" (that fine mist kicked up by traffic) made it necessary. When I arrived in Florida there was a heavy black line on the windshield at either end of the wiper blade travel and the wiper blades were destroyed. They were not very old but they left their wiping edge on the windshield, requiring a razor blade for removal.

In reading the details about Aquapel, 2 questions.

How many applicators does it take to do the whole motorhome windshield?

Can you do the whole windshield before wiping it off with a paper towel, or do you have to do it in sections?

Talk to any windshield installer and they will tell you Steel Wool is a No No.
Forget the Steel Wool and simply apply Rainex. Use the extra energy saved to tip a couple of beers.
