The washing gives us a little exercise and at age 75, I find the workout beneficial. To each his own. It is really not to hard to get the water blown off. I just keep it wet in front of the blower.
Roger that RK,
Everyone has a preference. For some, the "Waterless" version of washing a motorhome works. But for me, I couldn't do that if I was paid to. Lots of dirt sticks to a coach due to the type of dirt/dust/debris/road oils etc. Just pushing around with a sort of "mop" is not my way of cleaning. So, a thorough washing is my preference. It's too bad that we can't come up with some sort of cheap and easy way to create either Deionized water or, RO water. RO or, Revers Osmosis water is also a spotless washing water but, for most of us, not within our reach of creation, as easy as it is with deionized water creation.

Incidentally, someone spoke of running "Softened" water into the CR-spotless system. Well, not a good idea. I thought it was a smart move too until I spoke with the folks at CR spotless. Their explanation was that, the chemicals used to soften water, now also have to be removed from from the incoming water, as well as all the hardness too. So, that means the CR spotless system has to work twice as hard to produce deionized water and, therefore, a reduced life span of the resin is also produced.

I've been using CR for years on my cars, but I usually buy my resin from here.
The price has gone up a little, but still not bad for 50lbs. They've usually got a sale of some kind or another going on too.

I always enjoy reading your posts Scott, they are always spot on (no pun intended) and very informative. I agree with you on all topics, dry mops (good only for dust) and Spot Free, I use them both. When I wash my truck and RV with spot free, I always let them air dry a bit and then hit them with a towel of some sort but things always turn out very nice and clean and no spots. I like the spot free system, good luck on what ever you decide, I have yet to try that truck wash system mentioned earlier.

We have the DI Rinse Pro 50 and love it. I just wash the coach with a long stick wash mop and soap, then rinse it with the filtered water. No spots and shines like a new one.
