Now that fall is here, it’s the right time to clean your RV and prepare for spring. While you can choose to get your RV professionally cleaned, exterior RV detailing is a task most people can do themselves.
From equipment and washing to the best surface polishing methods, the following are detailing tips to keep your RV in tip-top shape.
Use the Right Equipment for RV Detailing
Renting or owning a pressure washer with a foam cannon can make applying soap to a tall vehicle easier and faster. However, when using a pressure washer, you must be careful not to apply too much pressure. Doing so can damage or nick the paint, leading to rust. When using a pressure washer, we always recommend erring on the side of caution and using a low PSI. This type of cleaning is also known as soft-pressure washing.
Cleaning an RV Roof
Your RVs roof is usually the dirtiest part of the vehicle. And that’s why it requires special attention. For cleaning your roof choose a cleaning solution formulated to clean and protect your roof from UV rays. Also, these products can help prevent fading and cracking. When in doubt, check what your RV manufacturer recommends.
Take Your Time
It stands to reason that RV detailing takes time to do the job right. These vehicles are bigger than cars and have more nooks and crannies. For example, it can be easy to miss a small spot under a ladder. Therefore, we recommend taking breaks and working in the shade, if possible.
Don’t Worry About Drying Your RV
Especially on hot days, drying an RV can prove an impossible task. Instead, use a washing product to help reduce the appearance of water spots. Also, there are water purifiers that use filters to remove minerals in water that can cause water spots.
Polish Your RV with BuffPro Buffer
BuffPro is an electric polishing system with several buffing pad options. It removes oxidation, light scratches, and swirls for a professional polish. The system also features dual pistol grip handles that are ergonomic. That means it reduces awkward wrist positioning when polishing.
