Hand-Held 1500 PSI Electric Pressure Washer

Does anyone have an opinion/experience with the pressure washer sold at Camping World? I'm looking at the AR Blue Clean, on sale for $99. Any thoughts will help me make a decision. We're going fulltime, and I want something that's better than a garden hose! Vern

I think Redbaron installed an AR unit in his DS. I'm not sure of the model , but he'll chime in sooner or later.

I have used several power washers. We have a Ryobi right now. I have found that nothing cleans better than good old elbow grease and a big wash cloth or mitt. Especially for the out sides of the motorhome. I got a rotary brush that hooks up to the power washer and I'll give that a try. But, it always seems that the power washer leaves a film of dirt. It is good for a prewash. I do worry about the water stream under high pressure pealing off the decals. Happened to my buddy.

Welcome to iRV2.
JMHO: Pressure washer not the thing to use on may areas of your RV. Far to easy to blow sealant off/out of the gaps, and high pressure can damage rubber roof.
Regular pressure ; garden hose; may take longer, but not hard on the RV.
