How is everyone washing the roof, hood, windshield, etc? I'm using a 6' step ladder that I have and just moving it around as I go. Is there an easier way?

Ladder is the best way or standing in the bed.

For the hood and windshield, I step up on the running board and then to the front tire. I do not wash the roof every time, but when I do, I get as much as I can from the bed and the front door sills. (i.e. No ladder)

I have a wash mitt made onto an extendable handle that I use for the front half of the roof and the windshield. I wash the back half of the roof standing in the bed and then while still standing in the bed, I wash the front half with the mitt on the extendable handle. Itís still tough to get the roof dried without a ladder though.

Sadly, no. I do use a 3' step ladder for the hood tho, and get as much of the roof as I can while standing in the bed.

Get a 3' step ladder, much easier to move around and store. Only section I need it for is the front middle of the roof, can get to the entire windshield standing on running boards and the rear from the bed.
