I finished hand waxing our new TT this morning. Did the front, back, and door side yesterday and the drivers side this morning. I didn't mind too much since I'm a clean freak. We have a blue beacon 20 minutes up the road from us as a truck stop. If I ever need to give her a wash I know where to go. I didn't even know you could take an RV through there.

Thanks

I'm thinking of let them wash camper, it's only a hundred bucks. Work is a dirty word to me. What do you think?

Not me, I'll take camper dirty or not. I have found out one thing the people that see my camper dirty probably won't ever see camper again. I'm just pure LAZY but lazy people find a better way to do things. I'll get out sometime next week and wash my camper but it will probably take a day or two, I like a cold one and it depends on how many I have as to how fast the camper gets washed

Lord don't even talk about grass, if DW dies first I'm going to stop at Home Depot on my way home from the burial and buy a 55 gallon drum of Roundup and spray it straight from the drum and kill all that grass

I would not use any car or truck wash, or anything else, that uses more pressure than a normal garden hose on a TT or any RV. You're playing with fire. Forget the decals thats the least of the concern. You'll blow water past things like vinyl snap trim at corners and those screws underneath it are usually sealed poorly. When they put roof membrane on they let it hang over the side, then they attach the awning or gutter rail over it by screwing it through the membrane. Then its trimmed off underneath the rail. They do not caulk the underneath just in case water did get in from above it can drain out without laying behind the rail. Wait and see what happens when the high pressure water blows into that area from below.

Our friends use truck washes whenever they travel. No problems and great results, but can be pricey. We usually use car washes with a truck bay. At home I always use a pressure washer as it is easier to dispense soap and wax products. As someone else above said, it causes no problems as long as you use the correct distance. Just as you do with a hose and a spray nozzle. Have to be smarter than what you are playing with
