I do two additional tasks at most fuel stops, clean the windshield and clean the front cap. I pull my soft bristle brush from the rear bay, extend it, drop it in the window cleaner bunch and go to town.

Okay I have done this a few times on my last Tioga, but its not very safe. I park it next to a solid 6 foot fence. Put an 8' ladder on opposite side of MH. Than I put a 2 x 8 to span across at the 6 foot height. This puts you over the hood area able to reach the upper cap to clean and wax.

Pressure washer

I decided that since it costs about $40 a pop to wash my Grayhawk at the local truck wash, I would invest in a powerwasher. For about $200 (the cost of 5 washes) I got myself an electric one that has about a 2000 psi output, which I found was pretty much enough to blow the bugs off the front cap, the front headlights, the doors, the mirrors, everything. Not much bug glue can withstand a 2000 psi blast of wter, although some put up a good fight.

I started by washing with a soapy mix , brushed it down, then went to a spraying! I had to work pretty fast here in Texas, as it was about 103 outside and the water was evaporating pretty fast, but it did the job.

Pressure Washer Caution

Just a word of caution to Pressure Washer users... Unless you invested in full body paint... Be very careful! I did not supervise the kids while pressure washing my old TT... The decals did not survive!
