Front corner protection guards

Has anyone washed their snap-on front corner protections guards? What product did you use - normal soap, or some other product. We just came back from a very muddy weekend and would like to get them a bit cleaner.

On my 17B I found the only product that worked good was called Bleche White. On the 19 I got rid of them and sprayed the area with Plasti Dip, looks better and working great.

"snap-on front corner protections guards"? Could you elaborate on what these are and a picture if possible. First I heard of guards for Escape campers.

I'm guessing vinyl, foam backed rock guards.

It's what you get to protect the front corners of the trailer, if you don't get the front storage box.

Looking to do the same thing. Do you happen to have a picture of what you all did?
Thanks!

I have a better solution. Run over to Chiliwack and get a front storage box. We love ours, wouldn’t be without it.

How much do they typically go for?
The other issue is, my propane tanks are stacked in the wrong direction. Is that an easy change?

They have to cut existing supports and weld new ones.

I don't have the storage box because I didn't want to spend $700 on it. Best to ask ETI for current prices.

Wow, Gbaggs, yours sure looked like crap. I still like mine --I am not fussy - here, a simple hose-down and a few squirts of Mister Clean took care of it.

I assume you're referring to the picture of the backside, which shows the foam disintegrating. On the front side, there are a few nicks from rocks.
