Cleanup and Storage!

Now for the cleanup!
Now that we're back from our US southwest winter getaway, it's cleanup time.  The motorcycle was first up.  Once fully washed and detailed, it was relegated to the garage.  With the weather so beautiful this weekend, it will be ridden. Average daytime temperatures are hovering near 60 degrees.  Not bad!
Next up was to wash the 5th wheel.
With the interior of the fiver emptied, cleaned and detailed, it was time to focus on the exterior. With an extension pole - connected to a wash brush - it's a fairly straightforward process.
The desert winter - and road grit - grime slowly runs off the side.
It's looking shinier.
I picked up a new anode rod for the water heater yesterday.  The original rod was nearing the end of its useful life.  Other than a bit of regular maintenance (and repairing one storage drawer) the 5th wheel is ready for its next journey.
Following a bit of 'black streak' detailing, it's time to button it up and push it back in it's storage area.

Ready to unhitch.

Just need to close and lock the gates till the 5th wheel takes its next voyage into the BC Okanagan Valley in late May.   Thanks for dropping by.
