I use the pressure washer to apply soapy water and a soft brush to remove dirt and grime, then the pressure washer to rinse.

I use a soft brush and a bucket. They work well and really do get the grime off. I never did as well with my pressure washer - I still had to use the brush on the grime. Therefore, I eliminated the redundant equipment - the pressure washer.

I've used my little electric power washer on the fiberglass roof and it does a great job up there but haven't used it on the body paint or radiator and probably won't.

Yes, they will drive and force water where you don't want it to go. Plus, depending on the coach, they can peel your decals off.

I use my power washer on the Radiators and the outside of my RV. It all depends how far away you stay from the item to be washed. Works like a charm.

Happy Travel
