Don't bother with the type that has a soap dispenser and a place on the end for the water hose to hook up to.
You'll use the soap up too fast and it gets pretty heavy with the hose connected.

A 5 gallon bucket, I use Turtle Wax soap, spray nozzle for the hose, step ladder for the high places, good stiff brush for the tires, and tire foam.

We wash, wax and cover every time we get back but have only used 1 time this year lol. It's been at the dealer for 1 month now so probably gonna have to wash and wax again when I finally get it back :/

I wash inside and out (plus wax) just before leaving. It gets super dirty sitting in a woodland driveway. It gets Washed on the road as needed. I'm not as fussy as most.

As for the bed linens, she'll wait until closer to the next trip to wash them so they'll be clean and fresh. I'll wash the TV and clean it up inside/out and then almost cry when we go through the first rain and the truck/TT get filthy.

What do you do?
We have always washed our RV after a trip and, if necessary, before leaving. Now that we have it in a building, it starts out clean, but seems like 9 times out of 10 we run into rain about 50 miles into the trip. Arghh!! As far as linen, we strip our bed and leave it that way until a day or so before departing. Inside is kept up as we go.

Every time....

After we unload from the trip, my wife does all the laundry, and I clean the entire inside, top to bottom. Floors, carpeting, counters, bathrooms, windshield, the list goes on. Then I drain and flush the tanks at our storage facility, (they provide a free dump site at their facility). Then I call a guy who has a wash "trailer" at the RV site where we store our rig, and they wash the exterior of the couch, (top to bottom), for me. Cost $2.50 a foot. I place the tire covers on and we are ready to go on the next trip.

Our storage facility also provides fresh filtered water to fill our tank plus bags of free ice, when we head out.
Great people!!

Ive got drywall scaffolding and several sections of full size block scaffold. Setting and moveing 2 sections of that every time we go is more than I want to deal with.I guess it'l stay buggy untill the next good t-storm. The inside stays nice and clean and thats the part I see most of the time anyway.
