Tips On Camper Trailer Maintenance

Here are the steps to clean a camper trailer.

(1) First and foremost, wash the surface using a mild soap and warm water. Never use abrasive products as these may cause problems for camper shells. At the same time in order to prevent build up of dirt, it is advantageous to clean the truck caps and openings on top of campers every 4 to 6 weeks using a wet cloth. Moreover, ensure that you remove dirt particles on the canvas using a brush.

(2) Wipe off grime from shoes before entering the camper trailer. Care for the carpeting by vacuuming frequently. Wipe wood and linoleum floors with a wet cloth to eliminate grime and stains. Regarding tough stains, remember to use only a mild cleaner then rinse off thoroughly to prevent detergent from drying. Care for the floor by not using hard bristles to stop the occurrence of dents as well as scratches.

(3) Moving on, vacuum clean window sills and towel blinds often in an attempt to remove dust. Utilizing a damp cloth, wipe metal blinds and the dirt and dust that remains around the window. Alternatively, metal blinds can be taken off and sprayed with a mild cleaner or even soaked in a tub of warm water inside your home.

(4) To clean the kitchen location, use a warm, soapy towel. Wipe down drawers, cabinets, faucets as well as sinks among others. Lift off the stovetop dishes then wipe away all spills as well as crumbs that are irresistible to bugs and rodents. Afterwards, soak the aluminum wire filter in warm, soapy water to deter oily buildup. Do not forget to clear the refrigerator as well as take out all previous or uneaten food.

(5) After cleaning the kitchen, proceed together with cleaning the bathroom/comfort room location by wiping lower toilet seats and the lids with an anti-bacterial cloth. Clean faucets and sinks with a white vinegar and baking soda mixture which may also be used in cleaning accordion showers. Remove as well as wash away, shower window treatments if necessary. Remove textile or plastic bath curtains and rinse as needed.
