That's why I get $500 poorer every time the RV needs to be washed and waxed.


Mine is $330 each time ($10 a foot), but he does an awesome job. Looks rubbed out when he's done, and 6 months later it still looks good. However, he's coming today as I got into a swam of lovebugs here in Florida last Monday, and had to use a light scotchbrite pad to get the bug's remains off some of the painted areas in the front. So he's going to rub out the painted ares and rewax. The lovebugs this year have been Epic. I've been in Florida since 1990, and this is the worst year yet.

I do ours 2x a year, and it's coming up in a few weeks. Day 1 I wash it, Day 2 I get one side and either the front of back, Day 3 the other side and front or back, which ever one I didn't do on day 2. I also do the fiberglass roof on either day 3 or 2... up there avto I use a spray wax so it only takes a little while.

I need to do ours again along with our regular drivers and my 3 antique Chevrolet cars! It starts out fun but turns into work pretty fast! [emoticon]
