The Best Way to Clean an RV

Motorhomes and camping trailers today come in all shapes and sizes. While washing a twelve foot long trailer may seem rather straightforward, things begin to get much more complicated when washing a bus-like motorhome that’s over forty feet long. Follow along with this month’s blog post as we discuss the best way to go about washing an RV.

Power Wash

Most RV’s are at least eight to ten feet tall, making them nearly impossible to wash without precariously balancing on a ladder or using a power washer. A power washer will not only allow you to remove caked-on grime and grease much more easily, but much faster too! It’s always recommended to start washing from the top of the vehicle and work your way down to the bottom for optimum results.


Once an RV has been thoroughly sprayed down it’s important to take extra care in cleaning the windows. Water streaks left behind on your vehicle’s windows are unsafe, unsightly, and will be harder to remove later. Additionally, using a window sealant or protectant is recommended to help fight against unavoidable dirt and rain.


The type of wheels your RV has will determine the type of products you may want to use on them but generally a basic rim cleaning product will work fine. As RV’s are regularly left outdoors exposed to the elements, investing in a tire balm and wheel covers would also help extend the life of your tires as well.


At the end of the day washing an RV is a lot different than washing a car. When towing it through a car wash and hand washing it in front of your house aren’t feasible options, call the experts at Ernest Windows for premium power washing and window washing services for your home, business, or RV.

Are You Using the Correct Window Cleaning Products?

Have you ever stared at a perfectly clean window? Did you contemplate if the window was even there? When it comes to cleaning windows and other glass items, it’s essential to use the proper products to get that clear, sparkly shine. Your cleaning supplies can make a difference between a spotless window and a window left with unattractive smudges and streaks. Continue reading to learn more about which items you should have in your wash bucket!

Glass Cleaner

Grab your cleaner of choice, but make sure to look at the ingredient label first. Is there ammonia or alcohol mixed in? Unfortunately, these agents can cause unwanted marks on your window. They can even produce a layer of film on the surface, which can attract dust and particles. If you’re going to use a solution, opt for a commercial cleaner or a make your own DIY vinegar and water mix.

Cleaning Cloth

As you’re wiping away the remaining solution, reach for a cleaning cloth with a microfiber material. The material itself is designed to remove bacteria from surfaces, without leaving any streaks on your glass. Have paper towels nearby instead? That’s fine too. Just don’t make the mistake of using a regular cloth towel. The material might not pick up the residue from the solution, or if it’s new, it can leave behind fluffy fibers.


For those tough spots that won’t go away, it’s important to be gentle. Scraping or scratching at the glass can damage the window and ruin the interior/exterior appearance. Instead, apply a solvent like acetone or rubbing alcohol to a clean cloth and rubbing it directly on the spot. Wipe it dry and then continue to clean your window as you would normally.
