CW has roof cleaner and you can get up on ther roof, start at the front and work your way back. Mine had a bad case of crap on the skylights and covers and I used tilex on them then polished them with Carnauba car wax. Meguiars is the polish of choice or Mothers but of the 2 Meguiars goes on and polishes quicker with less effort and lasts as long. Most truck drivers use Mothers polish or jeweleers rouge on wheels and chrome. Having owned a Petrbilt with the long hood I am into less work.

Well bringing back a old thread.

I did not do the clay bar. Instead I went out and bought meguiars #50. This stuff works really really well. Easy to put on it cleans very well removed some old bugs and the odd black streak. Came off just as easy as it goes on. And even made the black window frames and plastic bits look like new.

My tralier is 20ft I only used a half bottle. Took the wife and me about 3hrs to do the whole tralier.

I recommend this product.

Mind you I have an old rig! But I like to wash it with 1/3 bucket of bleach and 2/3 water, with a little dish soap mixed in so I can tell where I am scrubbing. I just use a long handled brush and the bleach keeps the shine on for several weeks....

You should'nt use dish detergent as it pulls the oils out of the finish.

Did a quick wash and used the Meguiars #50 on the front and back side. Easy on, easy off and a great result! Both on the front of my rig which is white, and the back (and sides) which are red. The red is where is see the difference most vividly. The color is deep, bright and has a mirror finish. All the faded cloudyness from the winter in storage is gone! Even the decals/stickers look better.

What an excellent product. I can't wait to do the sides!

Good deal.

Ours went through a big rain storm last night. It still looked great today. I think I will keep using the meguiars wash and wax to keep things up.

But off camping tomorrow.
