    Washing the bloomin thing, it's taken me nearly all day :cry:

    If someone was prepared to offer a motorhome cleaning service in East Kent I would use it every time.

    They don't tell you that when they sell them, do they !

    Continental flies are the worst, tougher than the paint.

    I get my 26' RV cleaned on the outside, including the roof, for £20 at the American Car Wash adjacent to the Garden Centre on the Ashford Road at Chartham and a very good job they make of it too!

    Smithy, Trophychap says you are a lazy git !




    Also wants to know if you can do a service on a Fiat Ducato as quick as you can his other transport, only he says it'll be ready for a wash by the time the warranty wears out, so it might be worth the diesel and we could go to Tescos after for its next one?

    Still moaning I made him wash it twice in France the other week, we kept getting brown slurry down the sides to just above window level - all to do with Tractorrrrrrs - and not the "Hardly Movingson" type !! LOL

    Thanks Invicta, I'm not too far from Chartham so I can run the truck down there and go to the coffee shop in the Garden Centre while they get on with it.

    I doubt I will ever wash it by hand again, but if I wait until Mrs Tucker has gone out for the day she'll think I've spent the day washing the motorhome instead of lazing around and drinking coffee - that is what I call a result.

    On the RV / Golf Club site we spent quite a long time on in Titusville, Florida a chap and his family operated an RV cleaning service, price for a wash & WAX $6 per foot roof as well as sides so our RV cost $234.......at the time $2 = £1 so £117 bargain.:thumb:
