I do not use a power sprayer. I think the lambs wool does a better job and is safer for the coach.
I've never heard of using steel wool on glass. I would think it would scratch the glass but you wouldn't use it if it did. please include more details on how and why you do it that way.

Rvgeeks had a video on using steel wool on windows on YouTube. Go to YouTube and search the phrase "Rv geeks how to super clean your windshield" and you will find it.

Washed ours while down at Fort Wilderness. Did half one morning and other half the next. Used a washing brush on a pole and some Blue Coral soap/wax. Also stopped at South Of the Border on the way home and they had a sign saying if your going to wash your RV do it upon arrival not departure.

I have used blue beacon. I showed them where NOT to spray and not use the acid base on the alum wheels. 35 bucks and it looked fine.


As anything even the "detail" place could spray water with high pressure some place they shouldn't. A bit of instruction goes a long way

Whats wrong with a self serve car/truck wash? I go by one once in a while and it has 3 stalls for cars and 2 for oversize vehicles? I just use there water and pressure washer and use my own soap and mop. If its busy I just wait awhile.
While on the road.

Ours is a class A 34.8' so I didn't know if the hose would go around it in a self service car wash.

Takes a few more quarters but do the front then move the RV forward and wash the rear areas. That has worked for me but most often I wait till I get home.

JMHO. If you can afford a MH you should be able to afford to hire a wash wax team to come in and do the job. We check with the RV park and use their recommended MH service. Just the cost of owning a MH.

Don't mean to be snarky but I keep mine clean by washing it. I stay away from Blue Beacon because I didn't like the results so I just wash my own with a extension pole that's hooked up to water and soap, push one button out comes soap and I scrub with the lambs wools, then push another button and clean water comes out for the rinse. Dry with microfiber clothes.

I've used a car wash a couple times. Just have the DW move it forward & Bach. Just to knock the dust off. Works pretty good
