I felt the same way about the Big Country and the Heartland Rushmore.After all my research on the quality of Redwood and then they offered Full body paint.....the deal was sealed. Next week she gets her first wax job, I figure it'll take a full weekend and half a bottle of Jack as well as several bags of sunflower seeds.

I am trading in a 40ft MH for my redood and the thought of having to wax that front end means another ladder. I like yourselves usually take two days. Wax on wax off-Two hands works faster. Plus your working arm isn't jealous of the slacker arm. Put them both to work. Buy the way I also have to do AL2 rims. Now that's where the time is spent. Plus sitting in the milking stool position is quit a thrill with bad knees. Good luck and kick one back for me. Hope to be in your shoes in a couple of weeks. (Aleve 2 tablets)

My son was in the car painting business for 10 years. He's getting me some wax that body shops use to help me. The main thing he said was to be sure to wipe the bugs off of the front of these daily because the clear Cote is soft and the bugs have a type of acid in them.

I received an email from a friend regarding the use of WD-40 and one of the uses was to remove bugs from vehicles. See information below:

Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt you... When you read the 'shower door' part, try it.¬* It's the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower door.¬* If yours is plastic, it works just as well as glass.¬* It's a miracle!¬* Then try it on your stove top .... Viola!¬* It's now shinier than it's ever been.¬* You'll be amazed.¬*¬*WD-40 uses:
1. Protects silver from tarnishing.
2. Removes road tar and grime from cars.
¬*3. Cleans and lubricates guitar strings.
¬*4. Gives floors that 'just-waxed' sheen without making them slippery.
¬*5. Keeps flies off cows.
¬*6. Restores and cleans chalkboards.
¬*7. Removes lipstick stains.
¬*8. Loosens stubborn zippers.
¬*9. Untangles jewelry chains.
¬*10. Removes stains from stainless steel sinks.
¬*11. Removes dirt and grime from the barbecue grill.
¬*12. Keeps ceramic/terra cotta garden pots from oxidizing.
¬*13. Removes tomato stains from clothing.
¬*14. Keeps glass shower doors free of water spots.
¬*15. Camouflages scratches in ceramic and marble floors.
16. Keeps scissors working smoothly.
¬*17. Lubricates noisy door hinges on vehicles and doors in homes.
¬*18. It removes black scuff marks from the kitchen floor! Use WD-40 for those nasty tar and scuff
marks on flooring. It¬*¬*doesn't seem to harm the finish and you won't have to scrub nearly as hard¬*¬*
to get them off. Just remember to open some windows if you have a lot of marks.
19. Dead bugs¬* bugs will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly! Use WD-40!
20. Gives a children's playground gym slide a shine for a super fast slide.
21. Lubricates gear shift and mower deck lever for ease of handling on riding mowers...
22. Rids kids rocking chairs and swings of squeaky noises.
23. Lubricates tracks in sticking home windows (and sliding doors), and makes them easier to open..
24. Spraying an umbrella stem makes it easier to open and close.
25. Restores and cleans padded leather dashboards in vehicles, as well as vinyl bumpers.
26. Restores and cleans roof racks on vehicles.
27. Lubricates and stops squeaks in electric fans.
28. Lubricates wheel sprockets on tricycles, wagons, and bicycles for easy handling.
29. Lubricates fan belts on washers and dryers and keeps them running smoothly.
30. Keeps rust from forming on saws and saw blades, and other tools.
31. Removes splattered grease on stove.
32. Keeps bathroom mirror from fogging.
33. Lubricates prosthetic limbs.
34. Keeps pigeons off the balcony (they hate the smell).
35. Removes all traces of duct tape.
36.¬* Folks even spray it on their arms, hands, and knees to relieve arthritis pain.
37. ¬*Florida¬*'s favorite use is: 'cleans and removes love bugs from grills and bumpers.'
38. The favorite use in the state of New York , WD-40 protects the Statue of ¬*Liberty¬*¬* from the elements.
39.¬* WD-40 attracts fish.¬* Spray a little on live bait or lures and¬*you will be catching the big one in¬*no time.
Also, it's a lot cheaper than the chemical attractants that are made for just that¬*purpose.¬* Keep in mind though,
using some chemical laced baits or lures for fishing are not allowed in some states.
40. Use it for fire ant bites.. It takes the sting away immediately and stops the itch.
41. WD-40 is great for removing crayon from walls.¬* Spray on the mark and wipe with a clean rag.
42. Also, if you've discovered that your teenage daughter has washed and dried a tube of lipstick with a
load of laundry,¬*saturate the lipstick spots with WD-40 and rewash.¬* Presto!¬* The lipstick is gone!
43. If you sprayed WD-40 on the distributor cap, it would displace the moisture and allow the car to start.
P.S. The basic ingredient is FISH OIL.
¬*

WOW! Haley's hints for WD-40
This has been part of our lives since it came on the market. Only problem is it's residual capabilities. You have to use itmorre often. Thanks for the tips
