I'm assuming the Park owner's do not allow you to wash the Rig at the site!!

Do they have a designated wash area??? Do you use truck wash operations?? Mobile or Blue Beacon??

Some parks do, and some parks don't permit it.

If it is not prohibited in the rules they hand you upon check in, I wash.

Some parks will allow washing the windshield only.

I don't ask if it's not prohibited in writing.

Many of us use a bucket of water and no hose in parks that prohibit washing and have never had a problem.

I don't use truck washes, as there have been reports of leaks from the high pressure, and reports of cleaning solutions that can be harmful to the RV.

Some RV parks allow a one time wash, most do not. Check their rules when you register. Consider using a commercial coin wash in addition to the truck washes. Most have an end bay with no roof, some even have a scaffold so you can get at the higher portions of the rig more comfortably.

From what I've heard, never use a truck wash. They may use chemicals that are great for a dirty trailer, but not for a coach.

Consider a different possibility. My coach has never been washed. I use either of these product to keep it looking better than when it left the factory.

If it's not posted I will wash and try to use as little water as possible. I have used Blue Beacon and ask them to not use the acid wash or RainX and they do a good job. My aluminum wheels are not treated and have not seen any discoloration of the wheels using BB.
