And when you are ready to pack up and hit the road, Sweep it off.

Then when you get back home check it again and if indicated grab the mop, bucket, spic & Span and garden hose and mop it down.

That's how I do mine.. Just like a kitchen floor for the most part.
Very Good. I wish my roof were only a couple of years old, but it is 12 going on 13 years. Just was checking in with the forum as to tips because basically the roof has spent 12 years in a desert climate (Southern CA) while we do get rain, compared to WA it is very little. I just wanted to be sure with the increase in frequency of the wet weather, if there was some tip the forum had.

I will be in WA over 9 months, so I may be still doing the spic and span treatment on a nice hot dry day after some time has passed.

Thank you for your input.

A related topic: RV covers, tear prevention. My TT has 4 inch "downspouts" at each corner. Any suggestions on what I can cover those with to prevent the spouts from tearing holes in my new cover?

everyone seems to be using the pool noodle's for things like this. they put them on the corners of their bedroom slides to keep from gashing your head open if you accidentally run into them.

I would think you could cut them into smaller pieces and place them over your spouts.

You could hold the noodles in place with that plastic shrink wrap you get in moving supplies section. Home Depot and U-haul carry the hand held type on a roll...it can be clear in color or green. It is like cellophane, but really grabs. I would thing putting the noodle around your spout and then wrapping it a couple of times will prevent it from tearing your cover when you are in storage mode.

Good Luck... Let me know if this works for you.
