RV Car Wash in Quartzsite or Parker, AZ

I would like to find a manual car wash for my RV. Do any exist. We are passing through Q, headed to Parker.

There's a carwash next to the Terrible Herbst gas in Parker. Think there's one further north on 95 as well...

Lake Havasu has on at the 1st light on 95 coming from the South on right.
There is a Blue Beacon in Kingman on 40 if your going East.

The RV wash at Terrible's is very tight to access, and for longer units requires you back out of the wash bay, because you can't make the corner on the exit side.
Terrible's is on the NE corner of the intersection in Parker where 95 turns toward Lake Havasu City. The second option, in Parker, is about a 1/2 mile up 95 on the right hand side , after you make the corner towards LHC. The RV wash is close to the street so a motor home with toad, would probably have to disconnect while using. Exit to the rear of the wash bay is OK.

JMHO: There are better looking wash facilities in LHC, visible from the highway, and if you happen to be going to Laughlin or Bullhead City , there are a couple of good ones that I have used in BHC, on the main street near Walmart.

Thanks for the suggestions. RV car washes seem to be few and far between. Maybe we should start a database for their locations with comments about accessibility and other important factors. It would be nice to plan a quick stop to wash the bugs off along our routes.

I live outside Austin, TX. It recently became the 10th largest city in the US. There is no Blue Beacon or any other RV car wash that I can find.

I just had mine done this past Saturday at a Truck Wash here in Central Ohio. They charged me less than 40.00 to hand wish it and had 4 employees working on it at one time. They will also do a wax spray for extra money but I opted not to do that part. they charge by the foot. The one guy told me that they did a lot of RV's in the summer. I just called them ahead of time to ask if they did RV's and they were more than happy to accodate me. The one I went to is also open 24/7.
