Is that a self wash? I'm in Florida and have yet to find a self wash that fits my RV. I can't wash it at home, so I'm willing to travel.

Not self wash. There are 2 truck washes in Wildwood and a blue beacon in ft Pierce. I use my own pressure washer most of the time

X2 on recommending the I-75 truck wash in Wildwood! Have used them many times with excellent results. Well worth the $. Bronk

Use "Blue Beacon" app or just go online and use it to see where these truck washes are

When are you traveling. You are probably going to come near Lake City Florida. I have used a mobile washer who does great work. He did more than wash mine, He cleaned to top, washed all, waxed and did the tires and wheels for $120. Wash only may be much less. You could camp at Ocean Pond Rv park in Olustee or in lake city.

Just an update about finding a self-wash in Florida, specifically Tampa Bay. First, you should know that a Google search is near impossible. As a practical matter, you can only actually find one by going to the washing facility to see if your coach will fit. FINALLY, I found one by accident. I drove past a car wash with 3 higher truck wash bays while driving up US 19, south of SR54 and south of Moog Rd., in New Port Richey. Can wash your coach for $12-$15 depending on how thorough you are and how big your coach is.

When we are traveling (which is most of the time) we use Blue Beacon - very reasonable. I generally get just the basic wash - just to get the dust and bugs off. Most I been charged is $1.50 per foot.

I've had this guy polish my wheels a few times and does a great job. Have seen some of the RV's he's washed and they all look great and the owners have been happy with the work.
He comes to the park in Indian Harbour Beach and think he goes to most of the RV parks in the area.

I carry a small pressure washer in the MH. Bought it at Home Depot, it's in a plastic suitcase and stores easily. BUT, a pressure washer only removes the rough stuff, it leaves the road film.
Hand washing is the only way to remove road film. That's why I also carry an extension pole and an RV wash brush + my wool hand mitten.
