First let me apologize for asking this again as I am sure it is in the forums in many places. However, when I do a search I think it pulls up everything that has the word ensolite in it, and while very informative, very time consuming. I usually end up completely off topic, oohing and aaawing at all the beautiful renos and planning a complete gut job....in my head. All I really want to know is if (since my initial scrub a year ago) anyone has determined the best way to clean the ensolite? What product, with a brush? I was gung ho when I bought the Lil' Darlin last year, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, boiling the bellyband trim, ALL the trim inside, but that was about it, oh yeah, replaced a window. Still soooooo much to do, but really trying to get a hold on the basics.
When I opened her up this week, there was a little wet from the windows
(front and back seem to be the major cuprits)which I already knew about. Grrrrr, just had to be the biggest and scariest windows
. I hope to get all the windows
resealed or do them myself. Wasn't too concerned as the small accumulation at the back ends up under the dinette bench. Nothing down there, just sitting on the fiberglass. No wood rotting or anything like that. Where it dribbled in, the ensolite is soiled, which again, not a big deal since I needed to give it another go with a good cleaner. The other thing I noticed is that all the trim that I had boiled and replaced has shrunk back - is this the norm? Also, when I removed the window last year, I realized it was a quick cheap paint
job as they didn't even pull the windows before they painted. This year I can see the paint
job was covering an even cheaper "repair/patch" and it has cracked so I need to fix that asap. Any and all information is greatly appreciated. I also read somewhere this morning that Trillium
is re-manufacturing the moldings and ensolite, hmmmmmm, again I find myself thinking about a gut job
