We keep our FW in a storage area which makes it difficult to wash from time to time. Anyone pay someone to wash your RV? Don't need a complete detail with wax, just a wash, including the roof. It's also time for me to do the annual roof caulking and it's obviously good to have it clean before we do that. Never considered paying someone, but at our old place we could keep our RV on our property. Not the case since we moved here. Just looking for a general idea before I start calling around. Thought of taking it to the dealer for a detail and caulk but my guess is they would be pricey.

Blue Beacon truck wash does RV's, but only the sides, not the roof. Under $30.

If a hammer can't fix it, you got yourself an electrical problem!

You caulk every year? Or just inspect and spot fix?

The cost to wash an RV varies with location and length of a coach. It is also, is it was wash only, is including the roof, is it a hand detail wax, a buff wax and so on. Prices for wash, roof and detail wax are +/- $10 per foot. You just have to see who is in the area and are they allowed to work in the park.

Check around with local campgrounds as they should know of someone who does washes.

$10 per foot is a good ball park figure to start with.

Look into Wash Wax All. I've been using that exclusively to wash my motorhomes for years. Most places accept using it since you're not using water. Quick and simple to do.
