Washing Trailer at Campground

Has anyone ever washed their travel trailer/RV at the campground? If so did anyone say anything to you? You're paying for the water so why not?

Check the rules or ask first. Some allow, some don't.

our campground allowed us 2x a year but they have a sign up now that says we have to conserve water so we might not be able to this year

Moistest to frown on it but I always wash mine when I go to Fortwilderness and no one ever says you can't do that, I have seen people using a bucket and doing the wash wipe method but no hose use, to much like hard work!

I have used a bucket of water(no soap) and a brush to wash bugs off the front and if bad enough, I'll pull a hose around to rinse. If they are into water conserving, they need to put locks on the faucets!

I don't make a big production of it and will do it hopefully when no one is looking.

Some people might consider this a violation and call the Grey Water Police.

Most campgrounds I have been to not only frown on it but have it written in their rules not to wash them. I would recommend checking with the campground. You can also use a blue beacon truck wash.

I'm curious about those waterless washes. Anybody use it, how does it work and does it hurt the finish?

Not to start a war, but if campground expenses go up then campground rates go up as well. Your camping fee covers a lot more than electric, water and sewer.

Most campgrounds frown on washing. If mine is extremely dirty I'll ask, I've had a variety of responses from no to go ahead and it will cost you an extra ten dollars. I have no problem paying a little extra to clean my fifth wheel.
