How to know?

How do I know if my roof is rubber or fiberglass? I'm new to this.

Just had my wife wash and wax the 5er with Mcquires cleaner wax 50 and it only took her two days to do the job. 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 thereís 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. Iím a fair man. I tell her to fix herself a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just sit for a while. 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. Iím 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.

I find it better to ask her to bring me a beer that way she doesn't have to squeeze extra lemons for lemonade for me. Anything to help her out.

The rubber roof will have more of a textured look where a fiberglass one will be smooth.

Exclamation

We used (yesterday) a Dry wash/wax product that we found last summer @ Back to the 50ties in Mpls.
Spray on, or spray on rag, change towel and wipe in product until dry. Took off the Black streaks with little effort.
Ufta I can hardly move this AM. I swear that I will pay someone else to do it under my perfect eye...
But looks better than the McGuire's(sp) I used the last 2 seasons. I guess I'm afraid to use the other stuff for fear that it won't look as good as a hand wax. No buffer this time either.

What is the name of this dry wash/wax product?

Have a 1999 Tradewind and the exterior was milky and heard of a dry/wash that whiz to put on. It s called Dryshine. Just spray on a 2 foot square wipe with one cloth and then wipe with a microfibre cloth . It took me about 6 hrs. to do my 36 M/H. Good for 6 mo. then do again.
I,m 70 years so it took me 3 days but only 6 hrs.
Easy and looks good.
