Gettin er ready

Unread postby mikhen on Fri Apr 11, 2008 3:23 pm

Just came in from attempting to clean the awning. It actually came out pretty nice. I need to get a little longer handle for the scrubber though.
Besides rolling the awning up and letting it soak for a bit, any other tips to make this job easier?

I carry a new sponge mop and use that to clean up the under side of the awning.

That's a darn good idea! Beats the paper towels or rags I've been using. 8-)

Although the season never stopped I brought the TT home to wash. The mixture of the seasalt grime( last trip to Galveston) and the pollen, it was filthy. Glad to report she is spick and span and ready for this up coming weekend trip :D , nice to see her the driveway. I am about to hook it up and take it back to storage :cry: but thats half the fun getting it ready and I was thinking about taking a na[p in the trailer after church today, c-ya on the trail :mrgreen:
