well i thaught i would take it easy today and just wash the roof of the van

luckily i have a wall that i can pull up to and work from that

i was struggling to clean under the roof lights so next thing i took them off and cleaned them properly

this gave me access to the roof light edges

looks like the sun in portugal is gradually getting to the plastic as they are going frosty but they were really dirty so a good clean made all the difference

nearly done all the jobs at home now and may think of a couple of days away shortly

You’ve reminded me of a job I really should get on top of, quite literally. Perhaps I’ll pop up there soon and give the roof a once over - it gives a reason to go looking for any possible problem areas

I’ve been ‘meaning’ to as well. We’ve had a couple of night time storms and the dust left is incredible. But I always manage to find other chores to do. So far our new super duper solars and lithium’s don’t seem to be struggling. Even with the small 12 volt fan going over the bed all night, we are still in float mode in the morning.

I wash our roof at least 4 times a year and polish it annually. Living on the coast you need to wash off the salt regularly.

Also when on our travels I always clean the solar panel regularly from inside as its our only means of getting power. If I raise the lounge rooflight fully I can get to it with my telescopic windscreen sponge/squeegee pole. [wink]
