Cleaning up the coach

I finally had couple days of no rain, we've had 40 inches in the last 6 months. Normal 52" for the year.
Anyway I started out to wash the sides, then looked at the roof, so I moved to the roof and scrubbed it down and rinsed, at that point I realized the we should have not parked under the trees after having the roof resealed, leaves stuck to everything.
After getting everything washed I applied the Reject sealer stuff too the front cap and Nu Finish to the sides and back.
I had planed to do the Reject all over then I saw that it lasts only 6 months.
I'm thinking next time I'll see if I can hire it done too much time on the ladder.
Anyway here's a couple pictures, can't tell much but it had never been waxed and was pretty dull, now it shines like a new penny

Lots of Blood, Sweat and Tears, but looks great. Also, clean her out as well. I haven't had mine for a year yet but we just finished emptying out everything from the inside and "re-loading" for the Spring. I was amazed how much crap finds it's way to the back and bottom of cabinets, drawers and storage lockers over such a short period of time.

Year

It's a 2015.
The DW just reorganized the inside cabinets, I added a shelf in the cabinet over the TV which opened up a whole shelf in the closet/pantry.
The outside cabinets are on the list of things to do
We've only had it since Oct 18 and been out 2x, leaving 4/1 on a month long trip
Here's hoping we live threw it
Thanks

You will not want to come back home!!! "Can't we stay out for just one more week?".

I use Rejex on my whole coach every spring, but then it spends the winter covered so lasting 6 months works out ok for me. Usually its still pretty shiny in the spring when I go to re-apply it.

I've used by finish for years on my trucks,boats and cars. If you use it sparingly it goes on easy and fast, wipes off the same . If you two coat it it lasts about a year depending on weather and # of car washes

You are lucky to be able to store inside, our HOA say any building must have same or similar finishes. Our house is brick, I can't even guess what a brick MH building would cos,t
