Rv washing

I live in Mullica Hill NJ and I like to keep my Fleetwood Bounder 35 K clean. I wash it, when needed, and put a polymer on it once a year. The polymer is a labor of love that takes time and patience...however I am getting a little long in the tooth to climb all over the unit...roof included...and wash it. Has anyone taken their unit to a truck wash and will the wash damage any of the equipment on the roof, lids, antennae, satellite etc. I have access to a truck wash, but no RV wash. Non comical suggestions would be great.

We used the Blue Beacon in Binghampton, NY once. They did a nice job. That got into a discussion around truck washes. Some do OK and some are rather rough on an RV. I'd go watch your local folks and maybe chat with the boss if they are not busy. The issues mostly seems to be the acid wash available for truck chrome and how stiff the brushes are. With BB the acid wash is an extra charge and not recommended by them for an RV. The Rain-X is and looked good on ours.

I used blue beacon truck wash in granite city il

They did not use brushes , just 8 guys with power washers, sprayed the windows so hard , water was flying inside from the water pressure forcing its way into the seals. We toweled off the inside, the outside looked about what you'd think for ppwer washing without scrubbing. Mediocre job, for a cheap price, around $20. I would go back, in a bind. But my first choice would be rain, 2nd choice would be paying some kids to help me . 3rd choice - blue beacon.

We use the semi truck wash all the time. Love it because it has walkways up above the roof line of the camper on each side so you can wash it from up there rather than climbing on the roof!
