|You have purchased a housetrailer designed and engineered
to give long service and comfortable living. The following suggestions for
the care of the Spartan Manor are recommended by the manufacturer.
|To Clean Windows:
The side windows of the housetrailer are the sliding type. Any type
of liquid cleaner which contains no abrasive may be used for cleaning these
|Plexiglas windows used
in the Observation Lounge should not be wiped with a dry cloth; to avoid
scratching, wash them with grit-free soft cloth,chamois, or sponge, using
plenty of water. Soup, kerosene, or naptha may be used to remove grease
and oil, but acetone, benezene and lacquer thinners will affect the surfaces.
Automobile or furniture waxes may be applied.
Wood Surfaces: Varnish used in the Spartan Manor is the best type. It
may be kept clean by occasional use of damp rag or mop.
of Leather & Leatherette Material: Original luster can be maintained
by rubbing with a clean damp cloth. Do not apply cleaning fluids to leather
of Aluminum: Wash surface with plenty of soap and water. If you desire
a high, glossy finish on the aluminum surface, periodic polishing with a
light abrasive cleaner, such as Min-Mum or Alum-I-Nu is recommended; these
products are usually available at aircraft maintenance depots. In aluminum
rolling mills, a blue oil spot will sometimes appear on a sheet of aluminum.
This spot is harmless and may be removed by the use of "Bon Ami Cleaner".
After surface is polished, wax may be applied to protect the luster. If
your housetrailer is to be at the seaside for several weeks or longer, wash
the roof with fresh water and apply a coat of wax. If your trailer remains
at the seashore, repeat this two or three times a year. Use regular automobile
or floor wax.
Screens: All window screens except the one at the rear window may be
removed by removing 7 of the metal screws around the extreme outside perimeter
of the screen frame.
|Range, Refrigerator and Heating Stove: See
attached manufacturer's instructions.
