No I figured it would rain. But tried to be positive.

I used meguiars marine/RV cleaner on the front.

The sides and back of the trailer Lucas speed wax was used.

And for washing I always use meguiars gold wash and wax soap.

Still looking great after 3 years and stored outside all year round.

Interesting, I use a bucket of water to wash my coach, no soap. Don't need it. Everything but grease is disolvable with just water. Grease comes off best with paper towel. Paint thinner for tar. I use a extendo painting pole and a brush with cloth hand towels for both wash and wax. I fold the hand towels over the brush to dr and to wax. Spray wax works the best. Pressure washers take off clear coat and paint, so why bother painting your coach if you use one of these. The longer you leave the bugs on the front the harder they are to get off. Using just a bucket of water, you can wash anywhere, anytime and use your own water. I think a bucket of hot water (from your coach) speeds up the process.

Isn't it one of the greatest feelings when you get to take the rig out for the first time of the season?

Going on the shake out the bugs trip very very soon and then on to Disney!

I have been lucky to already be out once.

But nice to clean it up.

Have a safe trip.

coulda been worse.....washed mine today and it was raining by the time I got to the end of it. I actually knew it was going to rain but I wanted to get it washed before we haul it this weekend and the next 2 days are going to rain and I'm not washing it on the day I'm leaving.....so that left me squeezing it in today before it rained.....almost.
