1st Week RV Owner - Minnie Winnie 22R

It's only been a week, been on a trip, and feeling comfortable with it. Equipped it with most everything we need and have most of any questions answered.

Any recommendations on exterior cleaning and waxing materials?
Does dishwasher soap really work cleaning out the grey water tank?

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Congrats on the new rig! Keep her between the ditches!

I just use the Turtle Wax standard car wash ($5+ per gallon) for washing. Never wax because it has full-body paint with clear coat and still looks like new after 14 years!

We don't use anything in the gray tank. We use Happy Camper tank treatment in the black tank!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

We are pleased you joined us. To answer your question about dish soap. Yes my DW puts Dawn dish soap in our black tank after every dump. Our black tank stays very clean. Often I don't dump the black or grey tank when I leave the campground in the morning if I will be in a full hookup site that night. It gives the soapy solution a chance to slosh around before I dump it.

For your info we have a Winnebago Chat every Tuesday night at 9 PM EDT and you are always welcome to join in. Enjoy the forums.
