    came into work yesterday and a colleague was there power washing his 6month old swift....

    I asked if he was crazy to which he replied "Ive always done this with all my MH's and beside the power is turned down"

    Personally I thought he was crazy not only for putting pressure on sealed points but also taking the sheenne off his loverly van..

    Do funsters generally use a power washer??

    Still I guess he'd find out if water ingress was a problem :ROFLMAO:

    No! I have seen the results of power washing, and they are not good.

    Nothing wrong with it - as long as you know how to use one!

    Problem is, many buy one from a hardare store, and don't have any training - they use them as they think they should and make a mess. As human nature is - the tool gets the blame!

    There is one outside I use- it can do things like this;

    It can wash vehicles, carpet mats, engines and welll anything.

    It can remove signwriting on vehicles, grafftti on walls, or oil from parts.

    Clean boats, buildings, warehouses, driveways.

    It can cut concrete in any shape or design you want.

    You just need to know what pressure, what nozzle and what distance and angle to hold it at! Easy once you know - I am sure an experience valeter can teach you these things if you ask them.

    Nothing wrong with the tool!
