Hi all we’ve been touring France Spain and Portugal and we’re looking a bit dirty now 😉. How do you keep the external Moho clean when your touring and only using Aires? We’ve seen a number of aires saying that washing vehicles is prohibited. Do you use jet washes somewhere else?

A couple of years ago in Portugal the van was covered in salt after wilding on the cliffs during a gale. I made Mr. Wallet pay for an Aire that had a washing bay.
Other times a bucket of water and microfiber cloth & wipe it down when it's raining, no one about to worry about it.

Haven’t been able to clean mine for months due to ongoing hosepipe ban in Cornwall. Good news is that it’s looking cleaner every day - persistent rain and gale force winds are saving me a job!

I must admit the jet washes at the repsol garage looked very tempting but we didn’t!!

I have stopped at a jet wash a few times while away and given it a decent clean. Like all jet washes didn’t go too close with the lance when rinsing off soap after brush cleaning.

I do exactly the same. I tend to use a mild mix of shampoo in tge bucket and it doesn’t need rising so much.

In Spain have also used Repsol wash bays that have a gantry to get to the roof with the brush but didn’t really direct the jet was lance on the van as such to reduce risk of water penetration.
