I just had my 4 Winds 33SW washed and hand waxed by Derron James from Ocala, FL (352-286-2939).

He came with another man all the way to Homosassa. That's about a 3 hour round trip. Worked about 5 hours. Did a beautiful job!

He asked for $200. I gave him $250. Well worth it.

Nice guy, too.

I saved alot of money and had just had my wife wax the 5'er with McGuires RV/Marine wax,and it took her all day to do the job, she does an exellent job and McGuires makes the rig shine. She is getting older and slowing down some but it is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of trailer maintenance as when they were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are overly sensitive, and there’s nothing worse than an oversensitive woman.

She had to take a break when she was only half-finished washing and waxing the 5th Wheel. I tried not to make a scene. I’m a fair man. I just told her to fix herself a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and watch the Hockey Game with me for a few minutes. And, as long as she is making one for herself, she may as well make one for me, too.

I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support her. I’m not saying that showing this much consideration is easy. Many men will find it difficult. Some will find it impossible! Nobody knows better than I do how frustrating women get as they get older. However, guys, even if you just use a little more tact and less criticism of your aging girlfriend or wife because of this post, I will consider that writing it was well worthwhile.

Cost me nothing but time and the cost of the Dry Wash N Guard! Took me a couple days the first time and a whole bottle of DWG, but now that's it's been done once and sealed it'll take far less of both.

Kevin,

You are an inspiration!

Derron did use McGuire's but I don't think he's a prospect for marriage.

I suppose I could try your method but my bride is a divorce lawyer & I think your way might get me an opportunity to see how good she was at her job.

Wax on, wax off... Tried and true... All you need is a young man in training, then it is much cheaper...

I typically do mine (and dads) because there is no one reliable to do it in our home area. We were both prepping to leave, and mine had been done most recent so I did his Monaco Windsor first and ran out of time to do my Palazzo 36.1. We got out to Newport Ca at the Dunes and were covered in bugs. I stopped the guys that are always there and had them wash and wax. Hand wash/dry/ and waxed the coach and my Avalanche for $300. They got a nice tip. After a week at the beach, I had them rewash for the drive home and they re-coated the front cap of the coach with wax, all Meguires, plus rewashed the Avalanche for $80-again a nice tip to boot. Like others have stated, doing it yourself is tough! It makes you really appreciate a job well done when it's done for you.

I see, so let me do a quick calculation... $300, twice a year or more, over ten years.... Hey, I can afford that upgrade now...
