Thanks for the insight I. The Blue Beacon! Heavy use of the coach and minimal free time hasn't allowed me to give the coach a wash! Best $50 I have spent in some time.

Blue Beacon RV wash

I spend lots of time at Seacliff State Park, Aptos, and Halfmoon Bay St Park. My return home to Elk Grove, CA I always run the rig and tow vehicle through Blue Beacon. Only thing I watch is that they don't get too close to the clear bra using the hi pressure washers. They do a great job and the H2O savings is probably appreciated. I think is is real important to get the salt spray off the top and from the underside. BTW, what is a wind shield connector?

The windshield connector is the electric connector to the wiper motor; if I read it correctly.

Thanks for the thread/comments/endorsements for BB. Never used them before, but certainly more educated now. And yep, near the ocean or gulf for even a week.......gotta get the salt off.

Has anyone used the Los Angeles Blue Beacon? Just a few miles from us. Do they dry the coach?

Yes I have used the one near the I10. They don't dry. Drip dry. They did good for me.

Thanks, Ray,IN. Sorry about that, DaveBunker. I meant windshield wiper motor electrical connector.

Went to the BB in Baytown Tx today. It was cheap (38.00) but coach still had a film of dirt on it when I got home. Not as good as I hoped but you can't expect to much for that price. I may try them again but not until I get a good hand wash and wax on the coach. I think it may come clean once it's has a nice slick wax job. It was more like a shower than a bath.

I would go back, I have had nothing but good experiences at BB. The is always a guy that comes out and introduces himself as the wash manager and asks if there is anything that needs special attention???


Did you get the Rainx option? When I go through with the trailer get the tires done it costs me about $95

I did not get the Rainx but that was mostly because I was planning a wax job myself. Since they did not get the film of dirt off I'll need to wash it myself first. I'm sure the quality of service is very different at each location. When I got out of my coach to go pay they were using the power washer wands. When I got back they were finished so I never got a chance to see them wash it so not sure if they used brushes. I did see them using brushes on the 18 wheeler in front of me however. I looked at my bill and it was not $38 that I posted but $35. Now that I have been there once and get it I'll grease the lead before they are done on my next visit.
