Yard/leaf blower

Has anyone used a yard/leaf blower to dry of their r/v after washing it? How well did it work?

Just wondering

I use them to clean all of our Harleys,TT,Trucks and dogs(dog love the air). It is the best way to get them dry. Mine has a plastic end on it, to not scratch anything on the paint. Works perfect.

Not the trailer but use one on my motorcycle all the time. I use a squeegee on the trailer, especially the windows.

I have used one for years to blow the water off the motorcycle and I use it on my truck too.
My neighbor teases me about "blow-drying" my vehicles.
Hey! The carwash does it.

I have a B&D Leaf Hog and it can blow pretty hard.
Be careful around peeling stickers or loose paint.
Make sure you use a good quality extension cord and stay out of puddles.
