Wanting to escape Texas heat next August. Made reservations in Vallecito Colorado for the month of August. It's about 8,000ft elevation and has spruce trees and I assume some pines.
What part of the year do these trees drip sap? I really don't want sap all over my RV and truck. RV park says mostly in June in a not too convincing tone.

Sap is really bad at cuts where limbs or branches have been cut. Alcohol does a pretty good job of removal

I have never gave the sap a thought. I have been going since 1978.

I’ve always used mechanic’s hand cleaner to remove pine sap from hands. Get the kind without pumice and for use with or without water. Gojo is one brand that works well. It ought to work on fiberglass, although I wouldn’t use it on a rubber roof as it is likely to soften the rubber.

I believe its also called "glue" season! LOL I found this the first time I parked my Excursion under one. it took some work to remove it! Now I watch where I park so it doesn't happen again.

We have been going to Blue Spruce RV Park near Lake Vallecito for the past 6 years-stayed 9 week in 2019. We don't have much concern about pine sap--we arrive around mid July--maybe that is why. For the 2 drips on the truck, I used Rapid Remover--adhesive remover--works great. Have a great time!

Where my seasonal is at I'm surrounded by white pines. I get tree sap on the truck as late as August and September. I use alcohol as well to remove the sap. I also deal with large pine cones that can leave a dent similar to hail damage. I have a older gas truck that I use up North to prevent damage to the newer Diesel truck.
