Does anyone make a portable power washer where one can drop the hose into a large geri can of water rather than hook up to a hose. Having a generator on the RV gives one the power needed. I am unable to bring my RV to the house to wash it. Very few car washes have a non covered bay which would not hinder the height.

Most any marine store can supply you with one, or at least the pump to make one. They are used to wash the decks of larger boats - it's called a wash-deck pump for that reason. It will likely be a 12v pump, though.

Most any water pump with a decent "head" (suction) should do the job.

I think every commercially available power washer requires pressurized water to feed the pump. This means you would need a small feed pump, such as a sump pump to supply the power washer. Look on the Northern Tool website.
