    For the last 12 years had the luxury of having all my vehicles at home but now because of a low bridge my RV is in storage (nice spot but 40 miles away:rofl:)

    Anyway they don't have washing facilities but i do have loads of space around the bus to wash it but no water.

    What do you do?

    Washing RV's is hard enough as you know John, but with a bucket:Err: Maybe you should source a nice big garage forecourt and a pressure washer.

    I keep the RV at work in the warehouse.

    When we have been away for the weekend if we get back early enough Bryan washes it with the pressure washer that we use for the trucks.

    I have an account with Lymm Truckwash for the trucks and they said if I call in they will handwash it! I can't put it through the wash because of all the gear on the roof.

    Hey guys and idea.

    If I fill the RV up with water do you reckon I could run the my jet wash from it's water system?

    As I say i have my own corner in the yard.

    Depends on your pressure washer, I suspect that most of the cheaper ones will have insufficient inlet pressure from the RV water pump.

    That is a very personal question John, I use the font of course:Laughing:
    being a man of the cloth I have quite a few dirty habbits
    Anyhoo yes your RV will supply enough water to your jet washer, I mounted a water tank under our recovery and a petrol jetwasher for the racing car and the gravity flow from that was suff sufish sufichia "plenty"

    I've seen people washing theirs on site using the freshwater taps on serviced pitches.

    Thought it was a bit strange the first time I saw it, but seems that quite a few people do it. Is this generally acceptable, as would certainly save water at home.....(on the dreaded meter:Angry:)
