When Mr. Arth-rigtous says it's ok, we (me) get 'er done. When Blue Beacon does the wash, does their chemicals remove the wax that took a week to put on?

Before and after

Always wash before and after a trip. If you do not remove the bugs from the front cap, the bug acid will destroy the front. Here in Florida, the love bugs have two seasons a year, if not removed within 2-3 days, the acid will eat right through the paint or finish.

Occasionally. When on long trips (50 days+) I take a brush and wash bucket. I have stayed at several RV parks that allow washing.

Inside is cleaned regularly.

Use meguiars spray on wax. Spray on, easy quick wipe off. Does a great job and only takes a short time to do. We wax every time we wash. If needed we will compound off black streaks etc and then wax. Blue beacon does an ok job but tell them to stay back from seals/caulk with pressure washers. Our blue beacon is 10-15 min from house so they know us well and recognize us every time we come in

Wash and wax for long trips. Do nothing on weekend or short trips. On the longer trips like when we good to Florida I cry every time when we get there. The front cap is usually completely covered with bugs when we arrive. My first job when we get there is to wipe down the front cap.

Same here. I clean camper and back into the building. Wife always ask why I'm washing my truck before the trip. Especially if we're going to the beach. At least I know it's clean before I left. Call me crazy.
