Question Washing our new TT HELP!!!

I apologize if this is being posted in the wrong area, I wasn't sure where to put it.

Happy New Year to Everyone!

Here is the problem we have, we live in West Texas and as many of you know we are under severe water restrictions due to the year long drought across Texas. We purchased our TT about 3 weeks ago and drove it home over 300 miles in soggy muddy rainy conditions, It is filthy, we are taking our maiden voyage this weekend and I want to get the trailer washed before we head out. We cannot bring it home to wash as the water runoff into the street is an absolute NO NO.. Were talking fines and possibly more.

Any RV friendly truck stops around?

Any advice would be appreciated, we are dirty, waterless and dusty

Thanks.

I don't think I would go to a truck wash to get my camper done....they use some pretty harsh chemicals sometimes.

You can ask them what they use, and not to use the acid/brightener type stuff on it. Some washes do hand wash if asked too. There are options just have to talk to them and do what YOU feel is best for your situation. Alot of semi trucks sleepers are made by aftermaket companies that use similar products to build them like our campers. I would not be worried too much about it. Ask for extra rinse so stuff isnt left on. They are very flexible and will work with ya, they want your business. Also plan on spending $20-$50 bucks as well, price depends on the place.
