This is now the 3rd time in this thread where I have said "my personal chronic habit of washing and waxing the RV personally including the roof and eyeballing sealants." I far exceed Thor's recommendation. I don't need a checklist to remind me to wash and wax RV and Roof. I use RV Wash & Wax monthly and Mequire's Pure Wax #56 (fiberglass roof) twice a year. I don't ever use a pressure washer sprayer on any parts of the RV, and when I am washing the roof I am checking all sealants was the point.

In short with exception of pressure washer use, I take care of my RV just like my cars, motorcycles and boat. It is just bigger

I listed all of the things that I do yearly for maintenance including roof, did I miss something? It is not that complicated is / was my point. Some things should be obvious if you use your coach, like check air pressure, battery water etc.
Oh boy! You need sun glasses to look at that roof and could shave by the shine.

I never go to the dealership. They would take a month to get an oil change done at double the price elsewhere. I use an independent RV service center. I do not have the space or time allowed, 72hr in the street at home, to do the oil changes etc.. I do most of the easy checks and dry lube stuff as well as the air filter. I can and do clean the radiators. At home I unload or load up, clean and wax. We had a problem with a neighbor who was calling in a complaint saying I was parked for over a week. She even called when she thought we were going to get the RV and bring it home. We were just going to the store. We met the parking police pull up and question us. I told them she will call as soon as we get the RV to load up and as you can see even when we just go shopping, thinking that we are bring the RV home. The answer back, we have to trust the person who complains. If I see you pull up I will assume you were here for a week and just went around the block. That is why I hate one size fits all -- well lets not get political.
