Cleaning Our Coach:

We use Eagle One’s “Wax As U Dry” and “NanoWax” on our

We hardly ever use soap to wash it. Most of the time we use a spray bottle of water,
Wax As U Dry, NanoWax

and a MICROFIBER towels to wipe it down with.
After every trip we make, we
clean the outside of the rig, unless it’s raining or about to rain.

We do a full treatment of the exterior 1 or 2 times a year with NuFinsh
to protect it.

Our last tip is to use a “California Duster” between cleanings. You
will be surprised how a simple dusting will keep it looking great.

Oh and we use “Met-ALL” Polish on the coach rims.
