Easy Roof Cleaning

Recommended Posts

I use one of these and a wax car wash. http://www. jmldirect. com/uk/mops/microfibre-mop+bonus-mitt/invt/m13mm30100000001

 

Waxy wash seems OK so far, but I only intend to to it once a year at the most.

 

I don't do washing cars too often either, The conditioning of owning a Land Rover, where washing destroys street cred! :)

Pump type rose spray and a long handled soft brush.

 

Spray Fenwick's caravan cleaner and rinse off with Bobby Dazzler.

 

Do not do the roof until the sides and ends are first totally cleaned or you will get streaks down the caravan.

The difficult bit is getting up there to do it.

 

Step ladders tend to be a bit wobbly so I use a 3 way step ladder, in ladder mode, LIKE THIS ONE http://www. amazon. co. uk/Abru-3-Way-Combination-Ladder/dp/B002EL4M16/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1389976629&sr=8-1&keywords=abru+3+way+ladder

 

Cut a couple of lengths of 15mm x 25mm wall pipe foam to fit on the side rails near the top of the ladder, exactly between the rungs http://www. amazon. co. uk/Pack-15mm-thick-Insulation-Lagging/dp/B00AZWLJTY/ref=sr_1_2?s=diy&ie=UTF8&qid=1389977107&sr=1-2&keywords=15mm+pipe+x+25mm+thick+foam

 

Lean the insulated ladder against the side of the van just above the awning rail.

Land Rover is now back towing.

Yes - get someone else to do it!

 

Just got our Vendee back from Broad Lane caravans in Alcester who have made a superb job of what was a very scruffy looking van. £60 well spent!

I bought a long handled through flow brush at around £15,

best thing ever, so easy I cleaned the car afterwards.

See the thread on Fenwicks Caravan cleaner and Bobby Dazzler

I use Asda spray on car polish karate kid style,,, spray on wipe off,,,, dead easy, can't remember the last

Time I used water on the van, just keep changing your cloths. And keeping the roof clean cuts the black streaks

I did

I've moved but the caravan hasn't as I've let the property

I now have to decide whether to move the caravan to storage or keep it 12 miles away where it is now with roof cleaning facility or have it closer to the new home with easier access

Decisions decisions :rolleyes::rolleyes:
