Leave nova Scotia and always get 5er and truck washed just above Tampa at BB..They do a great job and I get the Rain Ex treatment.......Cost this year was $85.00 for both...Well worth the money..Mobile units at CG charge $100.00+ just for 5er's. an hour later we arrive at CG with a showroom unit..........J

Used them once in NM. Never again. Way too rough on the RV. Too much pressure caused water to come through a window seal. Luckily no long term issues but I will keep doing it by hand as long as I can. $30 charge for a strict 11 minute wash.

The success or failure of pressure washing your RV is 100% in the hands of the operator. Use the wrong nozzle or get too close and they will remove decals and lift caulk. If used properly by a trained operator you can get good results. Problems is most places don't put their top mechanics on the power washer. Success once is not a guarantee that you will have it again even at the same location a few months later. One of the major power washer manufacturers recently issued a safety recall asking owners to dispose of the smallest nozzle that came with the unit as it was damaging property and injuring operators.

So true. The BB in Gallup, NM had a "Pit Boss" (for lack of a better word) who was loudly yelling and counting down time to move to the next part of the RV. They likely felt they had no choice but to be fast and forceful to get the job done.

Time equals money.

I feel for the guys who were clearly working VERY hard. Their job is a tough one, but I can't risk it again.

I have a nice pressure washer but hand wash. My decals are coming off the front again, taking them off and most likly not putting them back on.
