Window problem solved

The windows on the Southwind are now clear. It took a mild abrasive, water and DH's buffer w/green Tuffy pad to get it off. It didn't come off easy but did come off. From what we could see someone spread or sprayed something on the rubber roof and it ran down the sides and windows - and was left there. Something white and watery and very tenacious.

The Futon works fine and the new commode also.

We're waiting for the Maxxair vertical window louvers to arrive now and we're done. These will be the last they have as they discontinued them. I really miss the old louver type windows they used to put in RVs.

The TT was sold. They're to pick it up tomorrow.

I read your previous post and am glad you were able to clear up the windows so you can enjoy looking out at the scenery. Perhaps now, you and your DH can relax and enjoy your purchase. Happy travels.

From your description, it almost sounds like ZEP floor wax (people are applying it to RVs). There is a special stripper available at Home Depot ... and it's cheap. ZEP wax is difficult to get off but the stripper works (100% ... no dilution for glass).

Good to hear, nothing like a clean window to look out of.

Thank you. We're planning a trip to NC to do some sightseeing and visit his brother and SIL. They're RVers also. They have a 5th wheel.

We used ZEP on our old Class-C. It dries clear and shines. This stuff was white, dull and very tenacious. It looks/looked like watery paint of some kind. I guess as time permits he'll do the parts where it's on the paint. When done, we'll will give it a few coats of ZEP.

BTW ZEP lasts a lot longer on an RV than on a floor. I used it in the house. I just doesn't hold up like on a surface no one walks on.

You got that right. Now I can enjoy the view of the NC mountains in a week or two. I can hardly wait.
