Washing RV

I find it very difficult to keep my RV clean while traveling and in between trips. How does everyone keep their RVS clean without throwing out your back?

Wash Wax All is what I use. About an hour to clean it up.

I mix Turtle Wash & Wax and Meguires Gold half & half and wash with soft brush. To prevent water spots I use a leaf blower to dry the coach quickly.

Wash wax all with their pole and applicator. Works better than I thought it could.

Thanks for the replies. I washed it today...took me 2 1/2 hours. I'm a single woman in my sixties...solo now since my husband passed away. But I finally finished. I was just wondering whether anyone took their RV someplace to get washed. Doing this myself was exhausting and strenuous. Aleve is my friend.

There are places that will wash your RV. Camping world used to charge around $3/foot I think. I never used them. I will admit that after my decals started fading and cracking, I lost interest in keeping it looking nice. I just hit it with a pressure washer and some soap, take it on the freeway and air dry it. Not the best way, but I also have a bad back. I prefer the coach runs good and looks good inside for my creature comfort. The outside isnít TOO bad but it doesnít bother me.

Maybe try Rejex to make the bugs and stuff easier to wash off. Here in AZ I've paid as much as $6.25/ft or wash/wax.

Do what I do. Hire someone to wash and wax it. Grab a beer, lawnchair, and a shady spot. My back feels better already.
