Shurhold reports RV owners can detail their own rigs with quality DIY tools and products, and offers a step-by-step guide for cleaning.
Thoroughly rinsing the RV first will loosen dirt and grime, soften stuck-on insects, and wash away debris that might scratch the finish. By avoiding the heat of the day and adding only a small amount of soap into the water, spotting is kept to a minimum.
High quality soaps provide superior cleaning, and won’t strip away wax or polish. Because they’re concentrated, they can actually be more economical than budget-brand detergents that require more product.
Use a quality soft-bristled brush. Start at the top and work down to avoid dirtying washed areas. For large RVs, wash and rinse in sections to ensure complete coverage.
Telescoping handles, especially those that extend to 9-feet, are ideal for RVs. Curved adapters make it simple to clean every inch, even the crown. All of Shurhold’s handles and adapters have a locking, quick release that allow owners to switch from brush to drying device in a snap.
Devices such as the SHUR-Dry Flexible Water Blade contour to an RV’s shape and cut the dry time needed by two-thirds, a release from the company stated. It eliminates the need for towels or chamois. Made of silicone, it’s safe to use on any surface and easy to clean.
A quick detail provides the finishing touches. Quality multipurpose cleaners such as Shurhold’s SMC eliminate the need for multiple products. Spraying wheels, calipers or any metal that should shine and then wiping with a microfiber cloth will bring back a showroom look.
Shuhold’s 9-foot Telescoping Handle is $37.98; the Curved Adapter is $12.98; Flexible Water Blade is $26.98 and its adapter is $14.98.
