THOR #7788
Outlaw Garage Floor and Ramp Cleaning

I recently bought a 2016 Thor Outlaw RB to camp and haul 2 motorcycles in the back. It replaced a 2007 Damon Outlaw I had for about 7 years. The floor and ramp on this new one are SLICK, like the previous owner sprayed Armor All over their entire surfaces. This makes loading and unloading of my 800 lb motorcycles quite a challenge. Can anyone recommend a good cleaner or cleaning procedure that will return the surfaces to the non-slip variety I enjoyed with my 2007?

Find a place that sells auto painting supplies and buy a gallon of pre-kleano better known as wax and silicone remover. Don't think simple green will cut it.

x2, Simple Green is great stuff but the precleaner will work a lot better!

Did you have to remove the couches to fit 2 full size Harleys in there? I have a 2018 37rb and had to remove the couch on one side to fit my Ultra Limited in one side.

If you've got access to some ventilation masks and some serious fans: I'd use something like acetone!
But it can really mess you up, if you don't take it seriously!

I used Scrubbing Bubbles bathroom cleaner and mopped twice with water. That seemed to help.

Actually, I used Dawn dishwashing liquid with very hot water and went over both the floor and the ramp twice with a hand scrub brush and while thoroughly hosing it off each time and when it fully dried (I used a leaf blower) that seemed to do the trick. Thanks for all the suggestions!
