Washing Trailer(Truck Washes)

Anyone use Blue Beacon or similar truck wash to clean your trailers? Making this happen at home is a bit tough due to the layout of the neighborhood...

lol - I pulled up to a DIY wash one time and was able to put the front half of the trailer in, then turn it and put the back half in. The roof would not clear the A/C. I have enough room at home to do it, but did think of a truck wash.

My advice, give one a call and see how much they would charge. If they sound like "oh sure, we do rv's all the time" I would go. If not, then keep rolling...

A rainy day camping is better than a sunny day at work.

The ones I've seen have used pressure washers. I don't know if I'd trust the trailer to stand up to that. Just something to consider.

they do rvs, but they use very high pressure. if you have aluminum wheels and they offer to you the brightener choice, do your self a favor and decline this service. it adds some type of acidic mixture to the wash water and dulls the aluminum shine. you would be better off polishing those yourself. i think if they used indirect spray to wash your trailer you should be ok, but you will probably have to tell/remind/inform them of this before you go thru. you are just another vehicle to come thru their line, and they will want to get you in and out quickly.
