Default Class-B car wash

We are leaving next week for the south and there are good chances the van will be full of calcium before we could reach nicer roads. How do wash your van in such a situation? How do you find car wash that accept van?

You can find truck washes around most places that are setup for larger vehicles, but we usually just find a do it yourself one that has a tall enough door. They are pretty common and we have had no problem finding one when we need it.



I am skeptic of any wash that has high pressure wands and workers that aren't used to washing a class b RV. It is very easy to blow water into ares under and around the van shouldn't have water in them or soap. That is another reason we find a DIY place.


When traveling we are not real picky about getting spotless and usually just get the built up crud off, and of course salt. We are very careful with the high pressure and normally leave it on low pressure for underneath as we can't see exactly where it is hitting.

Yes they are normally called truck washes.



You might want to do a Google search for "truck wash in the city you would be in" and see what you come up with.

Lots of self-service carwashes have an "outside" bay at one end.

If your heading to FL, going down I-75S, and near Exit 224, Ellenton, you can get off onto US301N, a couple miles up on the right is a car/truck/SUV/RV wash service. The prices vary according to how much you want done......prices are reasonable and the wait is oftentimes minimal. Ron
