The Solution

Lutz, Florida  (high 91, low 70)

It’s HOT here!  I keep forgetting that it’s not summer time,  and when I read blogs about cool and cold weather, it brings me back to reality.  Our temps are about 5 degrees above normal and I wish it would be the opposite.

I sure wish we could head north, but we are staying around for a while because of Mom.  She has a few doctor appointments and I want to go with her to talk to the doctors and see what we can do to help her.

So…..nothing exciting to blog about.

Yesterday we washed blankets at the laundromat and then took a few things over to our storage shed.  We managed to trash a few things that were in the shed.  We plan on doing some serious purging in the motorhome soon.  It’s amazing how quickly things seem to accumulate.  Since we have a high amount of carrying capacity, we don’t worry about weight…so we tend to accumulate stuff!!

I started cleaning the motorhome yesterday.  It had gotten filthy from the wet roads when we left the Keys.  We had gotten a jug of  The Solution several months back.  It’s a waterless cleaner and wax.  Several of our Rv blog buddies used and recommended it, so we gave it a try.  You spray it on, and then wipe the dirt off with a microfiber towel.  I was concerned it would cause paint scratches or swirls, and was a bit leery of using it on our clear coat paint.  Previously, we didn’t use it when the motor home was very dirty.  We would hand wash the coach first,  then use The Solution to shine it up afterwards.  It worked very well and we never noticed any swirl marks….or I should say more than what was already there!

It also works great on bugs on the front end.  We try to give the front a quick cleaning each travel night, to avoid them baking into the paint. 

Yesterday, the coach was very dirty, so I tried a small area using The Solution to “wash” it.  It worked great,  and I didn’t notice any paint swirls or scratches.  I wiped gently and used a lot of the product.  I changed microfiber towels frequently.   I ended up doing the entire right side in a very short period of time. It did a great job with a minimum of effort.

So this morning I ordered another gallon jug.  We like the product for our cars as well.  It’s $40 a gallon and the shipping is free.  They send you a gallon jug and a pistil grip spray bottle.  You can use it for windows, rubber, plastic and leather (per the instructions) as well as painted surfaces.   I haven’t tried it on the leather yet.  We’ll see how that works.

Anyway, I just wanted to add my 2 cents and give recommendation on what we think is a great product. 


  1. We bought some recently too, but haven't tried it out yet. Thanks for trying it your rig first. :-)

  2. Glad the solution worked goof for you, we have not tried it yet, maybe some day.

  3. There are several different products out there, and they all seem to work great. Wish the weather would cool down in South Carolina. Sparky is getting crabby with the heat!

  4. We use it all the time and love it!

  5. I'm a big fan of the Solution as well. I bought a case this year at the factory where they make the stuff in Palm Desert.

    I use it on our RV but on our TV, computer screens and even my glasses - it works great.

  6. I used Meguires waterless cleaner on our rig the first week we had it, the stuf worked great! It's been in storage getting filthy and like you I worry about wiping it down with just a spray bottle. I'm going to order "the solution" as well and see how it goes, thanks for the tip.


  7. I ordered a whole case of the Solution. It's like getting one free when you order by the case. Don't know how long it will take us to get through a case but we're trying haha!!

  8. The weather is very gloomy here today. Not really cold, but not bright either. It was in the 70's all of last week and felt wonderful.
