looking for guidance

I do not have home or storage lot access to water to wash my travel trailer. (coachmen apex 249 RBS). Trying to think outside the box but so far coming up empty. What other solutions are out there to wash my travel trailer. Thanks in advance. OBTW I have geared up to wash it myself.

How about a friend who has some room and a hose. Also one of the do it yourself washes if near you. Just be careful if it is a pressure washer type wash.

I have had that problem, and just used the waterless spray cleaner. It works reasonably well, although it will not get all the baked on water spots off. After using it, I wax it, which takes off what the waterless wouldn't do. It's a workout, but solved my problem.

If you are able to wash it without restrictions (like at the storage lot) just put water in your fresh tank and put a couple fittings/valves on your low point drain lines and attach a garden hose to it. Turn on the pump and... Wala!

Here are my low point drain valves that accept a garden hose.
Open and turn on the pump and you have your own water source.
Purchased from McMaster-Carr, SMC brand.

I've even done this at campgrounds that don't allow washing. I asked if it would be OK if I used my own water from my tank and they said yes. What they didn't know was a few hours prior, I had used their water to add to my tank! Sshhh....
