We are heading out tonight for a trip to FL.
I washed the 5er back in Oct but plan to stop at a Blue Beacon truck wash before we get to the resort.

They have a whole package just for RVs.
What’s great is you drive into an enclosed building & two or three guys wash the whole camper for you.
Cost is $27 to $35. You can’t beat that!

Why there are no filters in an RV furnace.......

I had to find out more about this issue, i called tech support at Suburban and here is the phone number if you would like to check it out 423-775-2131. I spoke to Don one of the techs and ask him why is there not a filter in Rv furnaces and his reply was " the furnace in an Rv has a low air flow volume, in other words the CFM is low and if a filter was used it would restrict the air flow too much and would cause the blower motor to over heat and fail along with other things", he all so said that the furnaces in Rv's are used for a short amont of time and not like those in homes which require a higher CFM and continues use.

I put square filters in the floor registers. You can buy them cheap and they keep the dog's food (and other loose trash) from dropping into the duct work.

Being Canajun eh, are these Blue Beacon places a chain of locations throughout the USA? Hadn't heard of these before, but definitely will keep them in mind for future travels if they're popular. Are there any other RV washing centres? My friends talk about Flying J locations, but their TV's are diesel and I think that's why they stop at them.

any major truck stop will have a truck wash. Just be mindful that a trucker should have priority, as he is trying to earn a living.
