Seems like I'll be working really hard to keep my vintage (as of this year) Vogue clean on the road. I'll be driving between snowy (salty/filthy) North, and the sunny South. I would like to wash all the road grime/salt off, once I'm in the warmer climate. So I was wondering how do you folks keep your MH clean on the road?

I used to own car wash facilities, and I am VERY familiar with car washing/detailing, etc. I am also VERY familiar with truck stop washes for big rigs, however.......there is a distinct possibility that the automated truck wash might have a "glitch", and there goes your mirror (turn signal, airconditioner, antenna, etc.). It would be a major PITA for something like that to happen on the road, especially on the vintage coach that doesn't have parts readily available..

If you wash yourself, .......where do you do it, and how? Do you carry "A frame" ladder with you? Where do you hook up for water?

I'd like to hear your experiences in this regard.

Thank you.

I wash it myself at our winter snowbird home in southwest Florida. I carry a folding Little Giant ladder, as it is the safest I have found. The place we stay allows washing. Some we have stayed in do not. You should check with your destination campground first.
