Juel, now that it has been a while since you used the Marine Clean, how does the vinyl look now? I've used a couple of different products to try and clean mine (they were in VERY bad shape from nicotene, etc.). I haven't really been able to get them completly clean, and after a couple of months, they look just as bad as before I cleaned them (disclaimer: my walls are still out of the trailer in the garage, not yet re-installed). I'm concerned about delaminating the the vinyl from the aluminum if the cleaner is too harsh.

Thanks for the help.

I'll try to get some pics this spring , right now it's in winter mode .This has been a 20 year love affair , the first 10 was lusting after it . It was in a field not far from me and being used as a summer camp. Finally met the owner and made a deal in '96 , have been tinkering on it ever since. After moving the mice out and a week of cleaning it turned out to be in pretty good original condition.Have done numerous take apart-clean-put back together projects .Right now it is very road worthy and all system are functionig. Inside I have to resolve the peeling vinyl and the platic T moulding along the credenzer and beside the refrigerator . Out side is good except for some peeling clear coat. Would love to have that redone . I like the look and the ease of cleaning .

Jim and Sue , the best cleaner for inside and out that I have found is Spray 9 , another good one is plain old Windex , good luck
