Default washing the salt off

Well we didn`t much like driving in the snow but what a mess the motorhome was when we got back, the amount of salt that was clinging to it was amazing, I froze my backside off spending 2 hrs with the jet washer and a big sponge washing it down.

How do people cope that haven`t got the space or facilities to perform such a task?

They would rust I suppose! The benefit of most vehicles being from the peugeot/cotroen/fiat stable is that they do not suffer as bad as others such as sprinters and transits.

Main issue is getting the salt off from underneath, as most mootorhomes do not have any underseal.
