Spring Cleaning Up

The RV and volunteer campsite needs to have its spring cleaning done on it. Living in one spot for any length of time and you will collect a variety of things in and around your RV and site. Your RV will also need to be washed up, the roof cleaned and made ready for an annual maintenance it will need and the tires checked to make sure there are no dry-rot spots. We also like to take everything out of the storage compartments, clean the boxes up and reorganize everything back into their various storage bags, boxes, etc. and throw away things we have collected but haven’t used in over a year.

Inside we usually clean the roof with glass cleaner and the walls with those Lysol orange wipes. Yes, you will go through quite a lot of those but with all the dust and other particles clinging to just about every surface those wipes come in plenty handy and they smell nice too. Of course, you can use whatever scent you like. Then the arduous task of cleaning all the windows inside and out. A nice folding ladder comes in handy for the outside. It usually takes us at least a week or two to completely do the place from top-to-bottom and inside-and-out. Then we will be ready for another couple of months until the fall when we do it all over again.

This is a great time in Florida if you have to paint on that rubber paint on your roof. We always clean and bleach it first. Let it dry for a couple of days and then pray that it doesn’t rain for at least a week. We are going to have to do it again this year even though the paint can had on the label that it would last 5 to 10 years we had a couple of leaks in the cracks between all the storms and the frozen wintry weather we have had the past 8 months. We are saving up to have the roof completely redone but that would involve us moving out for about 2 or 3 weeks after taking everything out of the RV. Talk about your arduous jobs. You never realize how much you have accumulated until you have to take stuff out to do some remodeling or repairs! It’s kind of a toss-up between getting a new engine or remodeling the inside. Oh well, that is a problem to work on in a couple of months. For now, we just want to get through with spring cleaning. đŸ™‚
