Perhaps I didn't search right and there have been previous posts on this. Does anyone have a listing or some way of finding RV wash stations or truck wash stations? I, like most, like to have a clean RV everyday if possible! Looking for locations that will handle a 40ft RV.

Thanks,
Kyle

Here is a link to the "Blue Beacon" truck wash locations.

In a lot of areas the campground you are staying at may have a local person or company that will come to the campground and wash and or wax your rig.

Truck Stops frequently have truck washes/RV washes. Especially along major interstates. I would Google several of the biggies and I am sure you will find one closer than you may think.

Kyle,
Before using a truck wash, inquire about what the wash will use on your coach. Many truck washes use very harsh chemicals. I would not use a truck wash for my coach.

Gary is right on. Not only the harsh chemicals but also the high pressure washers and dirty brushes. All of the above can ruin the finish and or cause leaks around the windows. Be very careful about using a truck wash. In fact, in the Winnie book they tell you to stay away from them.

I went thru Blue Beacon a couple times after talking to the manager. He said they do 4 or 5 a day at his location. I did not have a problem. No brushes were used and they did seam to know how to use the pressure hoses without damaging the coach.

Over the past 10 years I've used Blue Beacon probably 100 times with good results. And then, they blew the paint of my front end with the pressure washer! Manager sent in a claim on my behalf with pictures. Received a reply with a copy of the "small print" on their paperwork which says "they are not responsible for paint damage" and basically said, you can sue if you don't like it!! They claim they are not responsible for any damage in any way, shape or form. No more Blue Beacon for me.
