Washing motorhome

I have a long trip coming up in three weeks,I need to wash my motorhome,It look pretty bad from setting all winter.How do you wash a motorhome when your under water restrictions and cant use water for washing autos.Dont have a carwash tall enough to get it in.

Stan , this stuff is simply amazing! Freedom Waterless Car Wash
I bought it last summer and will not be without it now......Not only will it clean it, it will look like you waxed it when done, and you ought to see the rain water bead up on it when done....

Stan , I bought the big saver combo pack , and am glad I did, I will have enough for a couple of years. I did the wife's 4 runner last summer, it hadn't been waxed in years, when she went to work on Monday morning, the store owner thought she had it buffed and detailed......He owns the local True Value Store, he ordered some, loves it.
Call out there and ask for Josh, Tell him a guy form Pennsylvania told you to call him and ask for a deal, he will throw extra towels, tire cleaner in on the deal......or dealers in your area might be easier on shipping http://freedomwaterlesscarwash.com/s...-local-dealer/

Do you have a Blue Beacon truck wash nearby?? I had our coach, toad and bicycle washed at one in FL. $52 and we were out the door in less then 15 minutes. You have to dry it yourself but the job they did was great. For that price it's not worth getting out the bucket and hose. JMHO

It looks like the waterless car wash product needs a cloth to apply it. My motorhome is a lot taller than I am and with a messed up foot I can't climb ladders. I do have a brush that attaches to my water hose and it will reach to the top of the sides.
My biggest problem right now is the front windshield. I have doggie nose prints on the inside and white streaks on the outside. I tried to clean the inside with a special mop and glass cleaner but at night it left streaks that reflect the other vehicles' headlights and I can't see thru it. Suggestions?

I think Wheeler Automotive next to the Texaco Truck stop does truck washes, I would check and see if they are still there. I had mine washed there once upon a time, a long time ago. You may also call the Pilot and the Texaco and ask them if there is a truck wash nearby.

I bought this from our Ace Hardware. It works good when you have those big inside windshields that are hard to access to clean. It's like a light wax that's really easy to apply and it dries quickly and is easy to buff off with a soft dry cloth. The best thing is when you buff it off and you are done it's streak-free and you don't have to climb back on the dash wrestling the steering wheel again. A little goes a long ways, at first you think the little bottle is expensive. I don't have a problem with all the other windows so I save/use just for in inside windshield .
