When you go to these truck wash places, they ask if you want the acid wash. It's a $25.00 charge to have the acid wash.

They told me that the acid wash was to neutralize the road salt. Is that true?

What is the acid wash, and what is it for?

Truck wash

We have travelled twice through Ft. Pierce, Florida in the last 3 months and stopped both times at the Beacon wash at the Flying J truck stop. They charge $1.00 per foot for the basic wash and add on for wax and wheel clean and UV coating of the tires. Our total bill has been about $60.00 and is well worth it. The ionized water rinse leaves the coach and windows spotless. Both times there were more motor homes than trucks going through. I am now about 1/3 through buffing and waxing the coach myself; about 8 hours time. The quote I got on waxing and buffing was over $700.00 so I will spend the $39.00 on the Beacon wash and save the $700.00 on waxing. DACOTAH
