One of the things we like about staying at military campgrounds (besides the price) is that they allow you to wash your RV. That’s a huge thing for me because I like to keep the Journey clean, something that’s pretty tough to do as fulltimers.
Having a little time off from helping out at Corey and Amanda’s house with both the granddaughters and the renovations, a couple of nice days gave me the chance to give the Journey a long overdue bath.
As usual, I started on the roof, I wash it a couple of times a year using Spic-n-Span. It does a nice job on the grime that gets deposited up there. Am I starting to sound like a commercial?
That was the first day’s job. Today, I set out to finish the Journey’s body, which had it’s normal road dirt and bugs plus some of the run off from the roof washing.
I’ve tried many wash and wax soaps over the years with some pretty good success with Blue Coral. However, I’m always on the hunt for a better product and I think I’ve found it. It’s from the boating world, which has some of the same cleaning issues that we RVers have.
It is OrPine Wash and Wax, which I ordered online from Amazon. I was surprised when it arrived the very next day.
It is super concentrated and the quart can make up to 96 gallons of soap. Biodegradable, too. It has a nice pine smell which left the Journey smelling like a large car pine air freshener. :c)
It comes out in a thick blob which mixed up very nicely. I noticed right away that the suds stayed formed and didn’t thin out as I scrubbed the Journey.
After washing half of the 40 foot length of the Journey, it still remained sudsy in my bucket.
I was quite pleased with the way the Journey came out, even my aluminum wheels sparkled.
I’m quite pleased with OrPine and I think I’ll use it from now on (unless something even better comes along). ;c)
Disclaimer: I have no connection with the company, just passing on info of something that worked well for me.
And now, for one of those amazing things you see in a campground, how about this setup to get your satellite TV?
Maybe one person in the RV doesn’t like what the other person watches on TV? :cD
