Wax on...Wax off

She's all waxed up and ready to go!!!
Ok, not really "wax" but a fresh coat of Nu Finish...

I really need to stop working on the camper and get out and do some camping! We still have not had her out for a shake down trip and I'm gettin' antsy!

Still have a few things to do(check brakes and bearings and final hitch set up) then we will be ready to do some dry camping on Memorial Day weekend and put her through the test.

A little hard to tell in the pictures but she is looking nice!

Looks good. I need to get the ladder and polisher over to the storage unit one of these days and get mine polished up before I expose it to the elements. It's the only time I wish I had a pop-up.

I washed mine down this weekend and used the 303 over the whole thing for the first time. Last year I used nufinish on everything but the decals and 303 on just the decals.

This way was much easier. I applied by hand with a spray bottle and microfiber cloth. Still took me all day and still kicked my butt! LOL Decals still look as good as when we picked up the trailer last year.

I was unaware about using it on the roof. Seems like a good idea though. Not sure I can get to it until the end of the season though, but the roof looked same as last year as well.

we have racked up over 1900 miles on our Bullet since April 1! We may head to the beach this weekend if this rain clears out.

Nice to be retired!

Looks good! After all that hard work you've got to get out and use it!

Did mine with 303 (tired me out) the 3rd week of March so we could leave the last week and come to FL. Came to a pretty little park with lots of pretty trees. Unfortunately whatever kind they are drop millions of little dead blooms similar to what we call hula hoops that drop out of our pecan trees in June. The trailer is/was covered in them along with my truck (also freshly detailed). I've swept and blown them off but they leave a dirtly little outline of their bodies all over. Now I guess I'll have to re-do the whole thing when I get home I guess the labors of an RV owner never end......

Can you use the 303 on the awning as well? I mean if I'm going to do the roof at some point might as well hit the awning up, right?

Speaking of 303, How much does it take to do a camper??? Thinking of giving it a shot next time.

I use a spray bottle and re-fill from a gallon container. It takes about a quart (32oz) for the outside (maybe a little less). I have not done the roof yet but will upon our return so don't know how much that will take. I would think that the older, more deteriorated it was the more it would soak up. I buy mine on Amazon.

I have not used the 303 on the awning....yet. I think it would be OK. Someone has probably used it and can respond to your question.

I also did the 303 treatment and took about 2 hours. I could feel the side of the slide was still slippery from last years treatment. It makes it easier to have the tongue kiss the pavement when doing the front.

How often are you applying the 303? Once, twice a year? From what I hear about it, I believe this is what I will use on my new fuzion

I only did it once last year but try for twice. I always get the bugs off the front after a trip, and a couple washes if needed.

I never thought of this! Now if I can remember to lower the tongue for next time!

Applying 303 to the roof and sidewalls pretty much eliminates black streaks as long as you keep the coating "refreshed" from time to time.

This philosophy works well with 5th wheels as well. I drop the front landing gear as low as it will go and then stand on the tailgate of the truck. With a good stretch I can reach the highest point of the nose.
