I'd be concerned about the pressure washer, grit on the 5th wheel would "sand" if hit by a lot of pressure. A small error in nozzle distance could also be serious.

I use a wide soft bristle brush on a telescoping pole.

I believe that's what I will use was not real up to using a pressure washer but someone recommended it so I figured I would come out here and ask because you get excellent replies

Let me add you’ll want to buy a extra wide bucket your brush will fit into.

I use a power washer all the time, however I only use my blue and white tips or the foam cannon. I have placed my hand in front of both tips. The blue / soap tip has virtually no pressure, the white tip will turn my hand red but again the pressure is not that bad . That said just like going to a car wash that is pressure washer only I don’t feel like I get it clean. So I use white tip to knock of dirt, then foam cannon to foam then I scrub with brush. Followed by rinse with blue tip. I do the whole trailer this way, then when I think it’s clean I use foam cannon to foam the whole side with a soap and wax and now soap and ceramic, then go back to the front and rinse.
