Thanks for all the replies! So it sounds like the units you have all mentioned do truly leave the coach spotless! This is very encouraging. I'll start doing some more research!

Scott, I'm glad Mike and Cha found the answer. I knew I wasn't crazy. I looked at my manual and no mention of the 15psi. However, I know when I bought it that there was something that said restrict output to 15psi, the reason I stuck the valve on there. If you think about it, running a lot of flow through the thing would certainly shorten the resin life. I got about 10-12 washes out of the original tanks. I wash a side, rinse with regular water and then rinse with the deionizer to conserve the resin.

Just wasn't in the mood today, but had to wash the coach for the upcoming weekend. My coach NEVER leaves the house dirty. I used the deionizer today. I have a lot of black and it works well. I usually walk around with a towel and clean up areas where the water continues to drain for awhile.

Hey Don,
Thanks for getting back to me on this. Yep, I do realize that the more the flow, the harder it is for the resin to do it's conversion. It's why I only use the flat spay on their gun. I did it with a pressure washer one time, a small one about 1.2 Gpm and, it was just too much of a pain in the a$$. I've also done the "2 hose thing" with wet the coach down with non DI and wash it, rinse it with non Di then, again with DI. Even that is a bit of a pain 'cause, to me, it seems you overlap more than needed just to make sure you've not left any non DI on the coach. Oh well, I might go through a bit more resin than most but, it's worth it, not to have to hand dry this big beast.
And by the way, I'd like to know what state, county, city, water district, etc. has the HARDEST water in the U.S.??? I know that Lake Havasu is like flowing bricks.
Scott

I used the instructions from Chuck on the Entegra forum to build this today. I have been using a wand with DI beads on my car for a while and have been very pleased with the results so I stepped up to this method for future RV and auto washing.
