Cleaning exterior when OTR

I'm curious if anyone gets their MH washed while on the road? What about full timers that don't stay in one place very long. How do you upkeep the exterior , ie waxing, etc?

Trying to go where no man has gone before - good luck

I use Dry Wash N Gard on ours. Works in the sun and, unless really dirty, you don't need to wash the rig with water. Even works in full sun in Yuma.

No, I'm not a dealer.

If I am in a park that will let me wash, I just wash it and rinse with my CR Spotless connected to my small pressure washer...no chamoising needed even in the sun. In the past I have been known to use Turtle Wax ICE Detailer when I can't wash.

I'll do sponge baths while on the road. A bucket of water, sponge and drying cloth.

Usually only the lower half of the coach needs to be cleaned.

I swear it rains the day we leave every time we go on a trip.

I'm sure you like it. I just now went to the link that you posted. I am somewhat wary of products that you spray on and wipe off and they claim that they come clean. You don't do any scrubbing at all? And you get a good shine?
