RE: "Waxing" a fifth wheel camper

Everyone wants easy. Years of saltwater kept boats & now RV have taught me that easy & durable should not be used in the same sentence. Lots of products remove grime & light chalking to produce a wonderful satisfying shine. Many of them are combination cleaner waxes. Typically they look good for a month or so & then the sun gets to the surface again & it needs redoing. For durability you can't beat a product that is formulated to be a one purpose durable protectant. This is not easy. It is a three step process of wash, cleaner wax to get stains & chalking off, then protectant wax/sealer for a long lasting shine. My preference is to do this process once a year except for the front cap, which takes a beating from acidic bugs hitting it at highway speeds. It gets a twice a year treatment. I don't deal with salt water ,nor salt air, and I know the results of the product being mentioned . I know the results you are talking about, do you really know the results of what we have mentioned . Of course its not going to last as long as some of these other waxes. I don't care , it works for me . At 73 ,yes I want it a bit easier I'm done with the wax on wax off . As said if someone wants to do it that way, I repeat have a good time . Just gives me extra time on the water fishing :B No one is forcing anyone to use a certain product, I have used many many over the years with good results. A question was asked ,and given, and many use the product we have mentioned , works for many of us. cummins2014: I am laughing, but I say THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Totally understand a quick/easy product may not be as good, but hey it works for us. My husband is also 73 and ENOUGH of climbing around on ladders not to mention dragging an extension cord with a buffer, etc. No salt water/air where we travel/live. We've done stuff the hard way long enough. Our camper is no longer new anyway so we'll just do something easy and will be certainly better than doing nothing to protect our camper. We're with you!!! Going to give the Wash Wax All a shot. You keep fishing and we'll keep hiking/biking and less time buffing things. Many Thanks to everyone for suggestions and advice.

RE: "Waxing" a fifth wheel camper

I have went to Wash Wax All , spray on wipe dry ,couldn't be easier , thats all I use now on the fifth wheel ,and our car ,and truck. Got away from Rejek, and all the rest. I get it from Amazon. X2^^ Rob cummins2014 and Second Chance: THX for advice. Do you think we will have to do anything special to the camper being that we've previously used the Rejex before using the Wash Wax All? Just wash it? We usually use car wash liquid on it not just dish soap. Camper has been outside for about a year and then under a shed for about 6 months since last using Rejex on it.

"Waxing" a fifth wheel camper

For a few years we have used Rejex on our 2015 fifth wheel fiberglass camper. The last couple of times we applied it was difficult. Being you have to do a lot of this job on a ladder, we want to go back to using something easier to apply and wipe off. We use Turtle Wax Ice on our truck and are super happy with application and results—easy to apply and wipe off. I recently learned about new Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Wash and Wax or the Hybrid Solutions Wet Wax which I believe(?) is a polymer like Rejex. How do we go about removing the Rejex other than polishing it off (which we aren’t interested in doing)? Can we just start using something like Turtle Wax Ice or TW Hybrid Solutions (on top of the Rejex without bothering to “remove” it)? Which would better: TW Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Wash/Wax, Hybrid Solutions Wet Wax or Turtle Wax Ice? Asking for opinions. THX

RE: Cordless blowers

Thanks to all for advice on cordless blowers. Tired of dealing with cords. We needed one for camper and home use. Ordered: Greenworks 48V (2 X 24V) BRUSHLESS 585 CFM LEAF BLOWER W/ (2) 4.0 AH USB BATTERIES. Seemed a reasonable middle of road price for a good compact blower. We'll see......

Cordless blowers

Hi. Anyone carry around a compact cordless rechargeable blower for blowing off camper roof, campsite pad, etc.? Which one, do you like it, where did you get it? We are shopping for one that we could also use at our small home blowing off deck, carport, a few leaves. THX

Lefthand Canyon Dr., Colorado?

We tow a 32’ fifth wheel camper. Has anyone gone from I-25 (Longmont, CO) to Ward, CO (Brainard Lake Recreation Area/Pawnee Campground)? We would be coming south from Custer, SD. On Google maps it shows to go from Longmont onto what it shows to be Hwy 36 (?), but it is really Lefthand Canyon Road and goes straight to Ward. There’s no number shown for Lefthand Canyon Rd. Otherwise you can go on into Boulder and take Hwy 119 to Nederland, CO and go north to Ward. We are totally unfamiliar with these routes and don’t want to get into some awful road or something. We are coming south from Custer, SD. Thanks

Hwy 150-39/Highland Scenic Highway/WV

Trip planning. Want to tow a 30' fifth wheel camper from Marlinton, WV to Frankfort, OH. Google map shows to take Hwy 150-39/Highland Scenic Highway over to Hwy 19 at Summersville, WV and north to I-79 and then west. Know it is hilly and twisty. Photos look like good road surface. Has anyone towed this 61 miles? What was it like? I looked at going out of the way south and avoiding the toll road but it would be 85 miles longer. We're not real crazy about towing super twisty roads, but it's not a long distance. Advice appreciated. Thanks.
