question about procedure

I used a good paste wax over the past month on my fiver to get that deep protection and shine that I like.. The question I have is this- what do you all use to get the dry wax build up off the joints/seams? Are there any other freaks out there like me who use a Q-Tip on every seam? There has to be a better way without removing too much wax from the panels . .

RE: Camping World or not?

Not all CW locations are the same.. My daughter and good friend both purchased their new RV from the CW in Lakewood , NJ.. The sale was easy, and they were fantastic to work with.. Since the sale (2021) both have had 1 trip back for warranty work.. Each time, the trailer was there for leas than a week and all was fixed properly… You hear a TON of horror stories on here about CW, they are NOT true for all .

RE: Lippert power awning

without seeing it, MY GUESS is that those knobs control the pitch for rain water? These electric awnings have spring loaded arms with knobs that allow you to lower 1 side for better rain water drain off... simply pull down on the roll ( pulling down and towards the RV ) , bring the desired side lower and tighten the knob... OR you can lower BOTH sides together and tighten both knobs.

RE: Considering a fifth wheel

agree with both above posters.. MOST of the RV heights will change AS SOON as you hook it up to YOUR TRUCK..... You need to hook up, see how level it is and get an accurate measurement at that point.... NO OTHER WAY ...

RE: I Bought Too Much Truck I just taped my cellphone to the rear seat head rest so the video is not real good. I backed up 1/2 mile before doing a blindside turn onto a narrow side road. I was in the truck by myself and had to watch for traffic coming from in front, behind and ensure no one was coming down the side roads all the while I was trying to keep my foot to the floor in reverse. I was busy. It would have been much easier with a co-pilot. Having the volume turned up makes it not a boring to watch. Thats some nice driving ( backing ) skills.....

RE: I Bought Too Much Truck

HA! And I know this is no bs since I saw your video of backing a GN trailer at what like 30mph? Fwiw I tried. Although with a long bumper pull flatbed. My personal best was only a bit over 15mph before I chickened out or things got squirrelly! Lol Not that any of the last couple pages has to go with Steve and his truck…. I should have made a better quality video while I had the chance. I was able to hit 35 mph backing the gooseneck with my 2017 F350 but Ford has spoiled my fun. The new 10 speed with its 4.92:1 reverse gear ratio and rev limiter has been neutered so as to have a top speed of 20 mph in reverse. Is there a link to said video? I’m pretty sure I would enjoy watching that.

RE: It's that time again

I washed & waxed mine about 10 days ago.... by buffer! It is a chore...but now done until we put her to bed...although I wax the front cap after each trip. I do need to get that ladder & plank setup. basic articulating gorilla ladders from big box store, and I cannot remember where I got the extending aluminum plank....

RE: It's that time again

Looks good. Too much work for me. I’m more into spray on - wipe off. I too like to use spray on but try to get 1 good coat of paste/liquid wax on early each year.. I will follow this up with regular washing and using Wash Wax All when needed..

RE: It's that time again

Hey Buddy...looks like yur gettin ur done! Lookin good, and from the equipment, it's not your first rodeo for sure. I've always worked off a step ladder, and just using hand held pads and towels. Using scaffolding would be a huge step up for me. While you have a lot of surface to clean/wax, I think the body paint is easier to do than gelcoat. Are you using an orbital, rather than rotary polisher? I bought a new rotary polisher, with wool bonnet last Fall, so will give it a try next month. My driver side gets a lot of sun, parked on my concrete pad at home, so hoping to bring more shine back to the high gloss gel on that side. I'm going to use Meguiar's one step 67, that worked well on the front cap, a couple years ago. I followed with NuFinish polish. Jerry Hey Jerry, I use a orbital buffer with an application pad. I take everything off by hand and then go over to second time with a clean towel.

RE: It's that time again

When do you do the curb side? Sorry, literally just sat down and typed that… Curb side is PM…that side faces east

It's that time again

It's that time of the year to get my own, personal "honey do" list done ~ Front cap, rear cap done..... curb side top half is done, street side bottom half is done... I work against the sun, mornings I do street side as that faces west, and evenings I do the curb side..
