No pre-soak. That's just the result of liquid flowing downhill because I've got the trailer lower at the front.
I used a soft car wash brush and a turk's head from my boating days. I've still got to deal with the tree sap. Will have a go with Turtle Bug 'n' Sap and a plastic putty knife.

Very hot water used with gloves of course really helps. Then using the black label Goof Off is a breeze.

When you run out, try rubbing alcohol, I was pleasantly surprised.

I agree, Robert. More than half of my life in New Hampshire was enough for me. My (and I repeat "MY") mantra is "Heat is uncomfortable, cold is painful."

My sentiments exactly. Many say as they age that cold is harder to take, for me it seems to opposite. The older I get the less I seem to be able to tolerate high heat and humidity. And I have closets full of nice warm clothes....

I never realized that was anyone's quote, but I have said the same thing many times, and truly believe it.

I am the same. I have WAY more energy in cooler temps, than in warmer ones. If I am working outside, or doing sports like mountain biking, I much prefer the cooler end of the spectrum, but If I have a cocktail in hand, and am hanging around a beach, only then can I enjoy temps in the high 20's C (80's F).

Easter weekend was a prime example. 3 nights in a row temps fell to around -5C (23F), and we were up 'til 2am partying away by a blazing campfire. During the day it got fro 5-10C (41-50F), and we had great fun outside, playing bocce, putzing away, and even ate our Easter dinner outside.

Not to say I do not enjoy warmth. Days around 20-24C (68-75 F) are comfortable to me.

Thus the need to get A/C in my new build, as we hope to explore into that sorching, parched southern part of the continent too.

Like Jim Bennett, this is my response as well.

Just like the difference between the coldest winter day and the hottest summer day in central Alberta.
