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.
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.
