Do You Wash Your Own Motorhome-- Where?

Recommended Posts

yup you are all correct...except these sat for 16 years untouched, un-cared for in a damp acidic environment. They do not need cleaning but a restoration and that requires elbow grease. Yes once they were very shiny but acid rain has taken it's toll. Pads may help but some old fashioned sanding is in order too. Just using the rouge helped, but to be like Mr. Joe's more effort is in store.

If you can find them there are floppy wheels and different shaped "tootsie rolls" for different applications.

Joe has a good tool the Mouthers cone and Powerball. Air tools are your friend.
