How best to dry the RV when washing? Bought the large microfiber towels at WalMart ~ three of them ~ and they are garbage. Do nothing but push the water around and I have cared for them exactly as on the label. Any great thoughts/ideas out there? Thanks in advance.

first off use Turtle wax car wash soap and second off rinse very very well then use the yellow micro towels from costco

I find that driving at about 60 mph on the Interstate after coming out of the Blue Beacon works great for me.

I use a squeegee similar to this which allows me to dry the coach quickly. Finish up with an old bath towel.

After moving to RMP/Zep usage the water seems to just be GONE.

I use a long handled Squeegee that I picked up at a RV Rally. Works great on flat surfaces.
Camco also makes a Squeegee. But I do not feel it works as well.
