Thumbs up Compact Electric Pressure Washer for RVing

I gave my Stanley SLP2050 pressure washer a chance but I had a few issues during my recent wash and ordered a new pressure washer for the RV to do a better job keeping'er clean while traveling. Per a long discussion of the Road Wave system not long ago and breaking down what's in that package, I decided to order the AR630 from Amazon. It came today and I am impressed with how compact it is! I haven't used it yet but the specs look good and it's a solid and heavy bugger so I think it's going to be a good one. Here are a few pics to give you a size reference. This is going to work great for my in my RV storage and keeping a pressure washing and small DI rinse tank on the road.

Nice, compact unit, Neal. The only drawback I see is that it has "WORK" written all over it. Not good in my book.

The little pistons can stay full of water even disconnected. Don't forget to winterize too.Thanks for sharing

I took an interest in this post when I first saw it but didn't have anything to add so I've been quietly lurking. However, this weekend my stupid Subaru pressure washer from Costco bit the dust (second time in less than 6 months!) so I returned it.

Knowing that we've got a coach on the way, I wanted a smaller pressure washer that I could toss in the coach and roll with, so I was super happy to see this post. Then I saw the price, which is gas on par with a decent gas pressure washer with 2,200 - 3,000 PSI. I get it though. Smaller, more efficient package and convenience often mean a higher price.

All this to say, I figured I was going to bite the bullet and buy this thing too but while at Home Depot looking for another pressure washer for the S&B, I stumbled across this little guy: https://www.homedepot.com/p/RYOBI-1-...1612/301004462. This has slightly less PSI and what appears to be slightly larger packaging, but it's 1/5 of the cost. For $100, I figured I could give it a try and if it was terrible, I could either return it or worst case scenario, dump it on Craigslist for $60-$80 and go grab Neal's recommendation, especially given his solid review.

So, I picked it up along with a gas pressure washer for the S&B and gave it a go on some algae that had bloomed on a section my S&B's white vinyl fence. Worked like a charm. Certainly this ain't going to cut the mustard for cleaning a driveway or any kind of heavy duty use, but I figure it's perfect for my forthcoming RV needs. Again, I've not had the opportunity to test this on my RV yet (it's likely still sitting in multiple pieces at Newmar's factory), but once I do I will post a review as well.

Dang! Reviews on that little Ryobi
are impressive, 2900 reviews at
4 1/2 stars. For a 100.00 bucks you may be onto something.
Im gonna give it try.

There's also this little guy if you want a little extra PSI and like having the soap container integrated into the unit, instead of the drop in hose.

This wasn't in stock at the store so I didn't know about it.

What are you using for your onboard DI rinse tank, and where do you locate this? I'm also curious if most people think that this is a superior approach verses just using the hot water supply line in the generator bay. Thanks!

I bought this exact unit when we put the house up for sale before we set sail in the Ventana, full time.

It did a great job! Did the entire house and a 12x20 deck in about 10 hours of continuous use. Gave it to a co-worker and he did the same. Took a licking and kept on ticking. I see no reason why it wouldn't do the trick for a compact RV washer. -Paul

That one actually sounds like a better option! Thanks.

You won't blast the paint off...
Don't keep the tip in one location. Keep it moving. Start moving the wand and THEN turn on the gun. Keep the tip a foot away from the surface to clean. Pull away on decals / rubber parts / things that could blow off (like marker lights). Double check your footing if you are on top of the RV cleaning the roof before turning on the water.

I use a 4200psi commercial pump and it works great for washing the RV off of the heavy stuff. A small electric power washer (probably 1200 psi or so) will be fine.
