Power Washing

I have a 1995 Monaco Windsor that Needs power washing, it has mildew on the top and sides from sitting under trees at my camp on the river. Any suggestions on what soap would be best to clean it with?

I get tree sap occasionally on mine. When I do I first spray Simple Green on using a hand held garden sprayer then wash using an automotive wash/wax concentrate in the soap applicator of pressure washer. Have used several different brands and really can't tell much difference.

There is a product called Mold Armor I use to remove mildew/mold from a plastic shed in my back yard once a year. Stuff actually works as advertised; spray it on, wait 10 minutes, hose it off. Might get some for tough spots on your vehicle. It's available many places: Walmart, Home Depot, etc. I would definitely test it on a spot you can't see first. If it's powerful enough to actually work, it might mess up the finish. Check it first.

I have used a product called House Mold Armor
Worked great ours had the same problem the MH sat in the PO driveway under a maple tree. I all came right off. I have a Aluminum roof with fiberglass siding and did no harm. I would suggest a trail area just too be sure. Got it @ HD.

If you have decals you want to keep - be careful with power washing...

BUT, I've had excellent luck from blue beacon -

Might be worth the 20 minutes and $35 - it is to me EVERY TIME I don't have to do it

Careful with a power wash as they can rip things apart.

Posted remedies sound good but consider visiting a commercial janitor supply house to see if they may have something better.

Optimum would be something that can be applied via a pump up garden sprayer then a light scrub via a broom brush then simple rinse with garden hose.
