I personally would not use waterless fear of scratches . Just fill your water holding tank then use your rv's water to wash and say you got that water camping.

I thought the same thing for years.....till I studied up on micro-fiber towels and this product, I watched a ton of videos, read a ton of reviews, and then made my mind up after pondering it for months to just try it. The only regreat that I have........is that I did not buy it sooner in my life
And not to worry about scratches, non so far for me Cleaning dark color's........it all has to do with the micro-fiber towels and the product, can't see the dirt on the cleaning towels, but when washed out after use........wow, the grime is down inside the fiber towels, not on the top....like cotton towels.

I got so tired of trying to locate self car washes that had a RV slot and RV parks who don't let you wash in the park. I found at Home Depot a in house plant water system that comes with a faucet adapter and a long coiled hose. Now you can buy those coiled hoses everywhere and the adapter separately. The RV Park cant tell me I can't fill my 100 gallon tank in my Bounder and leave the park and find a out of the way area and wash my own Motorhome . Then I go back to the Park and refill my tank.

OK, I am intrigued with the freedom wash. My primary thought is that it would actually make washing the rig much faster. I spend a ton of time drying the rig without spots that could be eliminated.

How much of this product would I need for a single wash of my 40' class A, on average?

Hi Chris, I use about 3/4 of a 32 oz. bottle to do my entire Coach. I sure like it, as no water, no water spots, washing time then drying time, and it looks like you just waxed it when done, and then toss the 2 micro-fiber towels in the washer.........done.

Look up Watersticks.com for their Deionizer, I bought one about 5 years ago and I'm pleased with the results. It's not 100% Spot-free sometimes because of harder water etc but it's really close.

Washing motorhome

A few minutes of light dew, a wafting breeze ladden with dust, a 12 second spritz of a shower.....and it is water marked, dusted, and soooooo terribly imperfect.

Some folks need to get over it. Rigs ger dirty real easy and only look perfect for moments.

I pay to have mine done. Cheap in AZ. REAL cheap in Yuma. Good job by Blue Beacon anywhere.

I dont see my rig when away from it during the day. Perhaps my neighbors lament over it.

If you clean too much, you explore too little.

$50? Their website has a different price. $35 for over 30' MH.RV/Motorcoach Wash Prices
I saw the 2011 website date and emailed for current pricing. The reply stated those are current prices, which haven't changed since 2011.

Yes Ray, the prices are the same. There has not been a change since that time.



Thanks for asking.

I use the Blue Beacon near I10 in LA when passing though that way. North of Bakersfield on I5 at the Lost Hills exit there is a truck wash next to the Lost Hills RV CG, behind the Pilot. Both do good jobs.
