Has anyone had any experience with spotless wash water systems?
I'm thinking of purchasing one but don't know if they really work as they say they do.
Wash, rinse and walk away no spots.
Appreciate any information anyone has.

Bob,
A couple members here have been extreming happy with one of the products found HERE
I have seen a rig afterwards and could see no spots and it was a hot sunny day that time. I am using one of those Mr. Clean systems that you can get at Walmart. It is better than nothing, but not nearly as good as those units mentioned above.
Mike

I have used the Mr Clean and been happy with it. I am sure that the $400+ units are better, but at the price, I think I can go to truck washes to get the job done!

As Mike says, the Mr. Clean system works well enough on the truck (see signature), but the spotless rinse mode doesn't have enough water pressure to reach high on the sides of the 5th wheel.

In my experience, the Mr. Clean units work o.k. but the cartridges don't last very long. I also agree that they don't allow enough water through to spray high enough to do a big 5er or MH.

I also can't figure out when the darn color on the Mr. Clean cartridge turns to brown to indicate it is used up. It looks brown to me when you put a new one in!! Cant see a color change

I have the Mr. Clean system and found it way short of their claims, at least in this part of the country. We have hard iron laden water.
I tried rinsing the coach, then follow up with a garden sprayer filled with distilled water for the final. It works way better than the Mr Clean at much less cost per wash. Usually takes about 3 gallons of distilled water per wash, at 60 cents a gallon, not bad. I get great results, especially on the the glass.

It worked OK on the car, but not very long on the truck and never mind the trailer. Refils are a bit pricey. When we moved, it went in the trash can....

Thanks to everyone who responded.
I think I may just try the Mr Clean unit and see if it won't at least make the wash job a little easier.

For under $7 we bought a "Garden Plus Car Wash Spray Nozzle" #31597 from Lowes. It has a small bottle attached for soap, but instead, we use Jet Dry (or someother dishwasher spot removing product). We use it for final rinse and it does a prety good job. We let the MH air dry for a while and then wipe down any residual drops. It is Lowe's Item #46076.

I use the Mr Clean when at home. My water spigot in the front of the house accesses soft water. It works great and my filter has yet to turn brown. I like the idea of distilled water out of a garden sprayer. Since I have both at home I'm going to experiment with it.

I use this system and it works VERY WELL, a bit on the expensive, but works.
