My RV is only too big-when I hand wash it

But the feeling of accomplishment is pretty good!

Washing it sure makes it "pop". I don't mind washing it. Now waxing it?

I wash and wax mine too, it usually takes me two days to do it all and then I can't move for two days. It's great when it's done, but while you're doing it you really wish you bought the shorter one.

I also wash and wax my own - scrub the top about every third time - 1/2 way done calls for a beer to celebrate

Before we were full-timing . . . Get back from a trip, wash & wax 1/3 of it, leaving the wax on. Got ready to leave, wash it all - not buffing the waxed area, just washing it off. That effectively had me waxing it a little more than once a year. I also parked it where the waxed side was the side getting the afternoon sun. After a decade in the So Cal sun, it still looked new.
