Did a triple take

Drove by a business yesterday that does auto detailing.

There the detail guy was, up on the roof of a "Fun Finder" travel trailer, PRESSURE WASHING the roof!

Now, I'm admittedly new to all this, but I don't think *I* would ever pressure wash a TT roof!

Me either!

Granted, I'm not familiar with the brand, don't know if it has the rubber roof, but I'd say all RVs have caulking/sealer around roof fittings, vents, etc.

I'm pretty sure it has a rubber roof

You could probably get away with a fantail nozzle.

If it didn't leak, it might now.
Bummer.

I was at a FROG RV rally in Kerrville, TX a few weeks ago and they had a service that would come around and detail your RV and they did the same, pressure was the whole RV. I wouldn't do that.

That's just crazy. I can dang near rip up concrete with my PW, can't imagine putting seals and caulking to the test like that, even with the 40 degree fan tip.

Ugh, recipe for disaster if you ask me. One heck of a way to end up with leaks or many other equally ugly end results.
