Wash mitt for Tiffin

Instructions for washing my Breeze say not to use a brush but wash mitt type head on the pole. Problem is I have looked online, in 2 RV dealers stores, Wal Mart, Harbor Freight Tools, and several auto parts dealers and can't find one. Anyone know where to find a wash mitt head that will fit on a standard type wash pole?
TIA,
Jim

Wal-Mart in the RV aisle of automotive section has the Turtle Wax microfiber pad on a pole setup. It's about a 10inch diameter microfiber on a telescoping pole.

I use the Swobbitt lambswool attachment and a water blade with their extension pole. You can sometimes find the attachments at Camping World but it is very inconsistent. Here is a link.

I do not use the synthetic type.

I bought a 100% lambs wool pad with pole at RB camping store. Expensive but it will prevent swirl marks in the paint.

More importantly is the fact you have the NEW paint and it requires you not use microfiber on it at all.
"will cause minute scratches that will wear away your clearcoat and eventually ruin your finish".
FWIW:You can get the lambswool mit at MARY MOPPINS as well as all the cleaning supplies Tiffin recommends for use in/on their products.

Washing Breeze

There is a similar thread re using or not using microfiber somewhere in the Tiffin owners group. After reading the Mary Moppins articles in Roughing it Smoothly (archived on the Tiffin Motorhomes site 2010 I think), we have used only baby shampoo and vinegar to wash, and real lambswool mitts as well. Her website sells a heavy 100% cotton "diaper" material too. We have been very pleased with the products and the results.

I also use Mary Moppins products. Besides the mitt,I really like her "Advantage" protectant in place of wax. If you contact her, she has a number of articles on how to clean and protect the new Tiffins
