Washing the RV

March 3, 2023

On Wednesday (March 1), we decided the weather was perfect for washing the RV. It was overcast with no wind.

Bruce went to the office to pay the $10 fee to wash the RV. They told him they would add it to next month’s bill.

We brought out our Aero Cosmetics Kit for RV washing that we purchased at the Lippert Getway. The kit has both a wet wash and a dry wash with a scrubbing and drying head that attaches to a pole. It also comes with a mini bug scrubber. We used both the dry wash and the wet wash. The wet wash was used on the lower parts of the RV since they were so dirty and the dry wash on the upper sections of the RV.

Once we started the washing of the RV, the wind started gusting now and then, as well as the sun peeked out from behind the clouds on and off.

Here are the before and after pictures.

I tried to get the same position of the after pictures as the before pictures. They don’t line up exactly, but you can see the results of the wash.

We were very pleased with how the RV looked after we finished the wash. It took both of us about three hours to wash the RV. It was so dirty. We did take a couple of breaks in those three hours, since our arms got tired of scrubbing. It was especially tiring using the scrubbing head on the pole to reach the upper sections.

      1. Tremendous job, I’m not too familiar with RVs, I just stumbled upon your page.

        There is a guy on YouTube who mentioned that it’s possible to hook up RVs to piping and electric on land?

        If so I never knew that, however I grew up in New York City, so I never met anyone who had an RV, I’m completely ignorant to it.

      2. We full-time RV, which means we live in our RV year round. We also travel a bit. Most RVs these days are set up to be hooked up to water, electricity and sewer. You don’t have to be at a campground to have all of those and the RVs are designed to go without being hooked up for about 2 weeks if you want to dry camp aka boondock.

      3. Yes, RVs have built in ventilation. They aren’t insulated that well, so in cold weather, many RVers in cold climates will put a skirt on their RV. RV with slides are great for having more living space, but the seals aren’t 100%. We have dual pane windows which help some with insulation, but the biggest thing they help with is noise reduction.

  1. Julia,
    It looks great -well worth the time. Trouble is, you’ve got it looking so good, somebody may come along and make you an offer you can’t refuse!

      1. Not really. We do call it our rolling condo, but we haven’t come up with another name yet. I try out different names now and then, but nothing has worked.


      2. You’ll come up with something. 🙂 I know for boats, ships and planes, it is unlucky to not have a name. I don’t know if that holds true for RV’s or not though. :Even my car has a name. She’s named Harley, since we got her after we did an event for the Colorado Saint Bernard Rescue at a Harley Davidson center up in Loveland. 🙂

      3. The truck is Cliff the Big Red Truck, as a pun from the children’s story “Clifford the Big Ref Dog.” Bruce said we could not have “ford” in the name since it was a RAM.
