How did you re-caulk above the windows and/or do other required sidewall maintenance with an aluminum extendable pole, a scrub brush, a chamois mop or a squeegee?

To reach every area of the exterior of an RV one needs some kind of portable ladder, (even if the RV has a "mounted ladder"...which BTW my Safari does not have).

Thanks for the post Mel!

I do have one of those short rear ladders that can't be climbed w/o additional short ladder. I have a Hydrolift on the rear that makes it easy to get to the rear ladder.

I was carrying around one of two folding\telescopic ladders, almost like those "little Giants" that I have here at the house. Nice ladders but a tad large/heavy for RV'ing.

We are planning to start full timing within a year so I started working on getting the cargo weights down.

I have a three piece "privacy screen/shade" that snaps on the Drivers/windshield/entry doors. I need a ladder to snap the top snaps on the driver & Windshield sides. I can get to the door snaps using the steps.
One trip I forgot the ladder & had to get on the roof to put the shades up. Not fun.

As long as I do all my servicing myself I'll be up on that roof.

When you are about ready to get up on the roof make Sure EVERYONE KNOWS! I had a friend up on the roof of is own coach standing near the edge. His wife exited the coach & when she stepped on the entry steps the coach rocked & the person on the roof ALMOST lost balance & fell over the side!

Even easier is the blue laminate floor mop with micro fiber cloths & telescoping pole (Bed Bath Beyond etal). Spray pad with a waterless cleaner,wax & polish sold everywhere. I use Purple Slice. Be sure to buy a few extra pads for the mop to change while cleaning. If you do this once a month that's all you'll need to do to keep your rig looking clean. Use on windows, especially windshield to make it easier to debug.

Lots of good suggestions. Well at least I don't have to hang a ladder off the back of my rig.

This brings up another subject. I'll have to move to the laptop for this.
