Although your fun isn’t done in 2010, it’s time to plan ahead for putting your RV away for the season.
Obviously, thoroughly cleaning it before storage helps avoid an unsightly mess next year.
With the help of Thetford Premium RV Care products, a pre-storage cleaning is also an ideal way to protect your investment for the future.
After all, of all your possessions, it’s probably second only to your home in terms of worth. So it’s understandable that you’ll want to keep its value as high as possible for whatever the future holds – whether you retain it, sell it or trade up.
RV Care At Its Best
Thetford products are the safe, easy and effective way to maintain an RV.
They provide the short-term gain – and sense of pride – of having a sharp-looking vehicle. And they provide the long-term gain of protecting – and even maximizing – its value as an investment.
An American-owned company and an RV industry leader since 1963, Thetford lent its expertise and commitment to RV Care development a decade ago.
The results are the formulas that distinguish Thetford RV Care from the others: a series of unique, high-quality solutions specially made for RVs and designed to work together. In addition, extensive testing was utilized from the start to verify safe and premium performance on a multitude of finishes.
Members of Thetford’s comprehensive RV Care lineup are:
• UltraFoam Awning Cleaner
• UltraFoam Black Streak & Bug Remover
• UltraFoam Aqua-Clean Kitchen & Bath Cleaner
• Hard Water Spot Remover
• Multi-Purpose Stain Remover
• Rubber Roof Cleaner & Conditioner (see related story)
• Premium Protect & Shine
• Fog Free Glass Cleaner
The first six products listed above carry the prestigious Design for the Environment (DfE) logo.
That took place after Thetford’s Chemical Engineering Department, headed up by Manager of Chemical Development Mary Burrows, began working in 2007 with the Environmental Protection Agency to reformulate products – making Thetford the first in the industry to bring DfE-recognized RV Care products to market.
Before being allowed to carry the DfE logo, product formulas are reviewed by the EPA, recognized to be in compliance with DfE requirements and to use “best-in-class” components from the CleanGredients database.
“We entered into this unique partnership to demonstrate our commitment to safety and the environment,” Burrows said. “But we did so with the assurance that these products also wouldn’t sacrifice performance.”
The partnership is on-going, Burrows added. Thetford continues to work with the EPA to produce even more environmentally-friendly products.
Thetford also makes these recommendations to help improve RV Care cleaning:
• Utilize a “top-down” process to properly maintain your RV. Clean the uppermost part of your RV – the roof – then work down to the lower areas – tires, for example. This allows the cleaning solutions used at the top to do some of the work by “washing down” below and prevents the need to “clean over” areas that have already been worked on.
• Consider the Ultra-Foam advantage. Three Thetford products have Ultra-Foam, which foams on contact and begins working immediately. It also provides longer surface time and less waste because the product doesn’t drip away as fast.
• At minimum, RV Care should take place at the beginning and end of each season – then as needed during the season.

It’s so popular because it does it all – deep cleaning, conditioning and protecting – effectively in a single, quick-and-easy step. Along the way, it saves time and effort, improves the roof’s look, and protects your RV’s investment.
A model of flexibility, Rubber Roof Cleaner & Conditioner does the job on rubber, fiberglass and aluminum roofs.
Even the toughest stains bow down before Rubber Roof Cleaner & Conditioner. Powerfully effective, it’s strong enough to remove a litany of tough soils, including oxidation, tree sap, bird droppings, leaves, dirt buildup and more.
In addition, an active UV blocker means Rubber Roof Cleaner & Conditioner keeps working long after you’ve finished using it – protecting your investment by blocking the sun’s harmful rays to keep your roof looking better longer.
What’s more, it deep cleans and conditions to help make future cleanings easier. And, with regular use, it helps prevent those nasty black streaks that can eventually embed in your RV’s exterior.
Like all Thetford RV Care products, its unique, non-petroleum formula is tested to be safe, non-toxic, non-flammable and biodegradable – so you needn’t worry about it being bad for you, your RV or the environment.

If you choose the Rubber Roof Cleaner & Conditioner gallon bottle, also consider picking up the Thetford Power Sprayer, a motorized pump that provides a continuous/automatic spray for convenience and prevents hand fatigue.
