Ok, folks, we have winter on the run.
Time to wax those trailers!
I prefer using Mequire's boat wax ... but others have had success with different waxes.
I think any wax would probably do.
The most important thing is to wax your rig a couple of times a year.
To wash the rig, I use a bucket, sponge and carwash soap which won't strip off the existing wax.
Don't make the mistake of taking your rig to a high-pressure car wash. Using a high pressure wand will lift caulk, window gaskets as well as drive moisture deep into your refrigerator
and water heater gas orifaces, causing them to rust.
Wash your rig by hand! Use a sponge mop to reach the tippy top! You can also use a sponge mop (covered with a rag) to apply and buff the wax!)
More springtime tips:
If you've had your rig stored all winter, now would also be a good time to hook up the trailer and exercise those tires! Might even think about adding a little grease to the wheel bearings, since the grease has a tendency to settle during long periods of storage.
Don't wait to do all this the day before you go camping.
Get out this weekend and do some maintenance on your rig.
I promise you'll find it theraputic.
