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.

Practicing Window Safety

So you’ve had those beloved windows cleaned and wiped by pressure washers. The surfaces look marvelous by way of their reflecting and glistening. And as long as they don’t shatter or crack, they must be fine now, right? Well, the reality is that there are many perils with even the most hygienically washed glass surfaces.


You might have seen those brutal instances of children killing ants for amusement by generating a laser beam with sunlight and a magnifying glass. Well, the same science is at work when you expose yourself to window-penetrating sunlight at home. When the intensity of the light makes its way to your curtains or other easily flammable material, the heated item can easily burst into flames. To avoid such scenarios, installing a proper window film and window shades should be the way to go.

Furniture damage

After you have obtained those safe curtains and quality window films, you might be surprised as you land on the sofa to take a break. The searing temperatures on that bright spot on your sofa is a result of the sunlight baking its surface. To avoid such events, consider putting a protective cover or blanket on the sofa. If you have valuable antiques and heirlooms near the window, those should also be put far away for safekeeping.

When the sun shines beautifully, it’s often easy to think that the radiance of the sunlight will give the consistent amount of warmth for good. However, this is the way of the frog of the boiling water. And this is why putting baby cribs and pet kennels right in front of the window is not a good idea should the sun make an appearance. Newborns and puppies cannot fend for themselves, and we must anticipate the dangers that can threaten them. Just like being entrapped behind car windows on a sweltering day can be fatal, so can being entrapped behind domestic windows.
