After a few months' use of your motorhome, it's important to carry out regular maintenance and a thorough clean before wintering, to keep your motorhome in good condition.
It will certainly take 1 full day to wash the motorhome, inside and out.
Exterior cleaning of motorhome
To preserve the bodywork of your motorhome, we recommend cleaning it by hand.
Cleaning products: Warm water, black soap and telescopic broom.
After watering the facades, you can start cleaning the roof with the telescopic broom - and don't forget the solar panel! Don't be afraid to insist on cleaning the joints and the profile cap.
We advise against the use of window cleaners, which may contain solvents.
Once you've cleaned the sides and windscreen, you can tackle the wheels and underbody. You'll need white vinegar, a little washing-up liquid and hot water.
Once the motorhome has been washed, we recommend using a microfiber wipe to avoid marks on the fronts, windscreens and windows.
Cleaning the interior of the motorhome
Inside and out
First and foremost, you can use your own vacuum cleaner with the appropriate attachments to remove dust from all the nooks and crannies of the motorhome: behind the seats, around the windows, on the blinds, but also from the TRUMA forced-air heating vents;
The motorhome bathroom
Once you've checked and unclogged the sink and shower drains, we recommend using white vinegar diluted in warm water and sponging everything down to remove all the limescale.
Motorhome kitchen and refrigerator
To remove all residues, you can vacuum drawers and cupboards. Then, using a damp sponge and white vinegar, you can clean the sink and gas stove. Be careful not to clean stainless steel with an abrasive sponge.
To clean the inside of the refrigerator walls, grids and trays, we recommend using bleach and household detergent. Don't forget to clean the seals and leave the refrigerator door open during winter storage.
The motorhome bedroomCleaningbedding is important to protect against dust mites and other insects, stains and mildew. For this, we recommend the use of a steam vacuum cleaner.
Cleaning the toilet cassette and emptying the wastewater and clean water tanks.
Finally, you'll also need to clean the toilet cassette. Don't use a clore. You can immerse the toilet cassette in a bath of water and white vinegar for a few hours.
Don't forget to leave the toilet flapper open to prevent the seals from becoming porous and brittle.
Finally, empty your clean water and waste water tanks.
And that's it! Your motorhome is clean and ready for winter storage.
