LA Totally Awesome & soap on RV

Has anyone ever combined the two in a bucket when washing their RV? I don't think there'd be a problem so long as I rinsed real well afterwards. And suggestions on how much to add to a 5gal bucket.

Thanks!

I would not use household cleaner,LA Totally Awesome, to clean my RV. These can strip the wax off.

LA Totally Awesome is a cleaner. LA's Totally Awesome Products . It's been mentioned on this site before. And the soap I'd be using is just Turtle wax ZIP Wax car wash. Once washed I planned on using my orbal polisher to apply a wax.

We use Awesome on our camper. Dilute it as per directions. We also use Awesome Orange full strength on black streaks. Spray it on, let it set a couple seconds, then wipe it off and rinse. We think Awesome is a great cleaner. We get it at the Dollar Tree.

LA Totally Awesome has been mentioned in other posts as a great product to clean the awning and remove any mold stains......I would think it would be pretty strong on the finish of the trailer. LA Totally Awesome is easy to find at Dollar Tree.

We do the camper in sections, using a long handled soft washing brush, rinse immediately and thoroughly. The key is to dilute with water accordingly.
We have had good results without any harm to the finish of any of our TTs.
No reason to buy the expensive RV soaps that also require diluting.

I just use a car wash product for general day to day cleaning on the RV.

Awesome is one of the few products that work on black streaks, and the local rv dealership buys the stuff by the case at Dollar General. It's also cheap in price.

I have found that it strips off part of the paint when removing black streaks. My trailer needs repainting now.
