    Hi, I'm Lisa from California and new to the group. And right off the bat I need help...pretty please.

    We just bought a 1998 Jayco Eagle 10 ST RD and are surprised by how much we dont know...but we keep plugging along. We have ordered replacement canvas and want to clean the frame (which have white stuff on them) and the bunk rails (which drag and have lots of rust) before putting it on. Looking for suggestions on how to get it all sparkling and clean.

    Welcome to the portal from SE Michigan!

    Do you have any idea what the white stuff is on the frame?

    Welcome from Oklahoma. A wire brush works well.

    A toothbrush to get in the grooves and a clean soft cloth to get all the goop out. Then a good dry lube when it's all clean to really lube it up

    No, we don't know what it is. It's kind of dusty looking. Maybe its something that grew? I'm at a loss.

    According to the information I found, after cleaning we apply a metal polish to protect them. I actually thought about waxing them but I guess we'll go ahead and follow the directions (after all we already ordered the stuff). Thank you.
