Is the Blue Beacon motorhome undercarriage wash effective?

For those of you that use Blue Beacon for your Motorhome wash, have you ever had them wash your chassis? We drive in Mag Chloride some in the Winter, and need to get the undercarriage washed (along with the unit).

Blue Beacon

I don't know about the under carriage wash, and I'm not trying to change the subject. But I use Blue Beacon for my m/h, jeep, and kayak on top. I never use anything other than the soap and water wash and rinse. I spend too much time waxing my m/h and don't want those chemicals to strip off the wax. My opinion.

I did use it, but like many of these things how do you really check? I figured it was at least no worse than doing nothing and would at least rinse off some of the more egregious crap. Did it get into the tighter nooks and crannies, I wasn't motivated enough to crawl under to check.

And for my 2 cents worth.. I was not happy with the wash job, it left a dirt film on the coach.. So what would it get off the undercarriage?

I used the one in Las Vegas after a hard drive south in bad weather. It got the coach clean enough that if you rubbed your clothes on it you didn't come away dirty. I am not supper fussy about the exterior. I know people that have their coach detailed every couple of months, which seems excessive to me. Mine is always going to be on the road again soon, so while I keep it clean I don't polish it.

I found for the money and given the time, Blue Beacon was a fair deal.

We live in Ga. and salt is not a big deal here. When I ever drove to Fla. and stayed on the beach, or up north in the snow and salt, I always placed a lawn sprinkler under the MH. I would let it run for about 20 min. and then move it until I had covered the entire bottom. I never had a rust problem using this procedure.

I live in VT and we do that with our cars up here. Dunno how beneficial it is but I do know that it does clean accumulated dirt from the underside and it gives me a little peace of mind.

Haven't tried this yet but somewhere I read people use an old fashion lawn sprinkler to rinse road salt off the undercarriage. I thought maybe tying a broomstick to is so you could push it under in different spots. Sounded so simple it just might work.

This would not be so handy if you were on the road though.

Woops, I see that I am a little late on that post. Please disregard.
