I suspect that you do not like white socks either!

I use a telescoping squeegee to wash the windshield and a telescoping soft bristle brush to wash the coach. If I need a ladder I usally can find one in the campground that I can use. As we all know, the vast majority of full-timers are quite friendly and willing to help those of us who don't have the proper equipment along or don't have a place to carry it. Just follow the rule of "If you borrow something, return it in better condition than you got it"

I bought a fold up alluminun ladder at Home Depot that is very strong and will unfold out to 8' or and extended ladder if needed. It folds back down to like 3' x 3' or so and fits right in a side compartment. I think it was like $69.00 + however I dont recall the name. We have similar at my work but are more costly then the one from HD..Here is an example as to what I have...Little Giant Ladder | Alta-One | Type 1 Little Giant Ladder..
Happy adventures

I have a 13' Gorilla Ladder clone of the Little Giant, purchased at the BORG. Lowe's has a similar one by Werner, about $100, which is $150 less than the Little Giant. Max height is 11', works fine to do the windshield or fold up to use as a HD step ladder. Love it. BUT I hang mine on the rear roof access ladder as I need all of my basement storage. I hang it from a ladder bracket from HD screwed to the MH ladder.

sandals with calf high black nylon dress socks are even more tacky

I carry a telesteps ladder but it's not rated for 300 + lbs either

My favorite, long white socks with shorts and dress shoes.

Here's the one I carry:
Amazon.com: Xtend & Climb 780P Aluminum Telescoping Ladder Type IA Professional Series, 12.5-Foot: Home Improvement

Collapses to fit most anywhere. This is type 1A rated and only holds 300 pounds. I'm not sure where you find one that supports 350 pounds. You'll need a Type 1AA.

Thanks yes a Werner is what I bought at the Home Depot..but it was on sale for $69 or $79. Very solid and stable while waxing or cleaning windows along side the MH...

i have a 7' GPL folding ladder with their RED TOP from camping world. this ladder is very stable with my weight on it. the rungs are narrow and hurt my feet when i am wearing athletic shoes. i am trying to figure out how to strap it on my moho's ladder. i am thinking about using 6'' pvc tubing and hose clamps. the gpl is much heavier than my beautiful, not ''tacky'', green fiberglass 6' step ladder mounted upside down. see my previous post #6 for pics.
i always wear white socks too.

Was also thinking of bending some flat bar to make a holder.

Ideas?????

Thanks
I agree I don't climb on the roof either.
