If you do a quick Google you'll find many washes and also mobile wash. I just looked.

Yup, thanks
I did google and found one but was looking for member input on recommended ones. Not all all RV washes are created equal.

We overnight at Mesquite enroute to Tucson or Yuma and since we do it first part of November it seems we always manage to get the coach dirty/salty/etc. We have started using the Blue Beacon just off the freeway at Las Vegas. Pretty inexpensive and quick and they’ll do it brushless if you ask. We’ve used the mobile folks in a lot of places and except for one have had good results but of course costs considerably more.

If I remember, there is a Blue Beacon between Phoenix and Tuscan on I-10, if you are going that direction.

Thanks. I am, and I'll check them out. Forgot about Blue Beacon. Used them when I was trucking 20 years ago.

Blue Beacon in Tolleson AZ

There is a Blue Beacon near a Love's Travel Stop at 8423 W Roosevelt I-10 Exit 135, Tolleson, AZ 85353. If you search for them on Google Maps you can click on their name and see when they are busy, and when they are not.
Coming toward Phoenix from Las Vegas on US 93 and US 60, I would recommend you take Loop 303 south to I-10, then east on I-10 to Exit 135.
Alternatively, stay on US 60 and take Loop 101 south to I-10.
Do take advantage of the new Loop 202 that bypasses downtown Phoenix.
There is another Blue Beacon advertised in Casa Grande AZ, closer to your final destination, plus one at Eloy AZ near a Flying J Truck Stop which is even closer.

Thanks kindly folks, lots of good information here and lots of choices. I just spent over $100 at a local Truck/RV hand wash doing the roof and body so I'm hoping that the beautiful fall we are having goes with us south.

Cheers,
Keith

Forgot about that one in Tolleson, we spent 2 months in Goodyear, and I used it once before we departed.
The 202 is a really nice drive, less traffic, nice road. You miss all of downtown area of Phoenix and come out close to the drag race track off of I-10.

Check on the new construction for the I-10 from Phoenix to Casa Grande. I think it is scheduled to start in 2023, but not sure. While we were there it was on the news about being moved up, it is scheduled to add a 3rd lane to both sides of I-10 to Casa Grande area. So, it will take a couple of years at least.

Check out the Blue Beacon in Kingman. You will likely take the 15 South to the 93/I-40/93 to PHX on your way to Tucson and there is a nice BB right off the freeway in Kingman next to the Loves.
