The cooler night temps won't be an issue.., you can even apply the Dicor during cold or warm weather just as long as the Dicor is warm (able to flow out of the tube).

Just finished washing the roof!

It's funny how I was walking ever so carefully when I started (like r-e-a-l-l-y slow!), but by the time I was finished, you'd think I was walking on the ground. I'm actually afraid of heights! It took me an hour and a half to wash it as well as gutters, all the nooks, crannies, etc.
No leaks after hitting the different seals with a steady stream of water

Now for it to dry! The front section is in the shade all day.

GREASE on the wheels!

Mainly around where the hubcap area is. Does this means that when they were "packed" the last time that they were over-greased?

-How do you clean it? That brake-dust wheel cleaner doesn't dissolve it.
-Do we need to have the wheels repacked?

My opinion is that they were overgreased the last time and this is just overflow. You will have to use something more powerful, such as naptha to clean the old grease. In olden days, I used gasoline on the tractors and my hot rods but I was young and dumb then...too risky now.

So I have this tube of Dicor goop.
-Do I just squeeze it on and spread it?
-If I spread it, do I use my finger, or some spreader thingy?
-Do I cover the whole original goop and have it spread out to the roof itself?


ON edit....

Nevermind... I found this on YouTube.... but I do have a question... do I have to use mineral spirits to clean the cracks first? Or is just the wash job ok?

OOoops? If I saturated the roof with water and used a soft brush to wash the roof as well as the seals, I more than likely have water built up in those little cracks and holes. I'm going to wait til tomorrow to apply the Dicor, but should I use some of that 'canned air' to blow out any residual water

A basic wash job will be fine.

For best results the cracks should be free of any moisture..., even using a dry cloth to absorb any remaining moisture.
