Cleaning the Roof

Getting ready for the National Rally - - - - "One" must get their act together so it was scrub scrub scrub the under side of the awning. Hate that job! You get wet period. I finished up by scrubbing the top and that came out nice. I use Wesley's Bleeche White to get the material clean and it's some pretty strong stuff. A little goes a long way.

On-a-roll I decided to go up on the roof and wash that! I'm using a wedge head type brush with deep bristles on a tele-pole. I got all my stuff on the roof and start washing the front of the rig and worked my way aft. I sprayed the Dicor self leveling caulking with the Wesley's and let it sit for a few moments. I scrubbed the areas with an old sham wow cloth and that worked well enough.

I use a 5 gallon joint compound bucket because it slides nice and easy on the roof. I used Turtle Wax Car Wash and scribed up the roof in 10 foot sections.

You should have seen me there for a minute, I looked like Circus side show. I had my imitation crocks on the roof and those things were just like roller skates. I could have put on my reef runners but those are just marginally better. You know what works and gives you excellent traction? Bare feet! That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Man! What a job! .... It's so bright now that I just have to wear shades!

Bad news is that the sides are all streaked with white drip streams from the fiberglass roof. I'll be pressure washing the rig later this week so all of that will come out in the wash.

10 days to go ... WOW!

Other than hand waxing, cleaning the roof is the greatest pain and I try to do it twice a year as it's stored outside. Waiting for early fall for the next one.
