Blue Beacon has an iOS app and I expect they also have one for Android.

My app for blue beacon is a small card they give out that lists locations by state. When the RV starts looking pretty bad I get out the card and look for a blue beacon that is on my route. So far so good.

So what do these truck washes usually charge to wash a motor home? Is it priced by the foot?

Thx,
Steve

I'm 42 ft and it runs $30ish to $70ish. It's abut what the wife pays for manicure and pedicure.
It's one of life's pleasures for me. I don't golf, go to football etc sports, no bars.


Half of what what camping world and others RV places charge.

There's a truck wash not far from us that we've used on occasion. Their pricing for a standard wash works out to roughly $1.50 per foot. For our 43 DFT ... it works out to roughly $65 and some change. I usually hand 'em $80 with whatever is over and above the actual charge going to the tip jar.

I prefer to hand wash it myself ... BUT am happy to take it to the truck wash when the temperatures aren't conducive to playing with water and hoses outside. They do a pretty good job of getting the coach clean - and frankly do a better job on the roof that I often do - simply because they've got a "catwalk" that allows them access that I can only get by climbing up on the roof myself.

I use the blue beacon a lot - $35, and $15 for the toad. You can add rainex and citric and tip and it gets to $80 or $90.

I have a center in Denver now that I can hit fuel at Flying J, Propane, and Blue Beacon wash all on the same block, next to the interstate so once done, I'm on my way out a here. I was worried about where to do all that when we got the MH.

I do have an app on my droid.

When we arrived in Tok Alaska last June our previous RV was so dirty from the Canadian roads I was relieved that the main RV park had a spray wash. Wife and I were extremely happy to spend an hour washing it. It stayed pretty good until we went back thru Canada. The last big town before we entered USA had a truck wash. Now that was the best $75 I ever spent.

Is that a blue beacon location, or some other place?

Both. Just like ham burgers local owned are better in my experience.
