Favorite "tools" for washing your RV?

I gave our new RV it's first bath today.. and ended up using a flat floor washing type of mop with changeable mopping pads.. but I am wondering what tools other people find useful for this chore.
Thanks
Lady Wendolyn

I use the same tools that I use on Car and Truck, Bucket of car wash soap, wash mit, and brush with telescoping handle that is made for washing cars. works fine for me this way I dont have to get out a ladder.

I use a telescoping brush too. Mine has a hose hook up on the end with a built in shut off. I use micro fibre towels to dry it off so the painted/decal areas don't water spot. IMHO the worst part is washing the windows.

Yes I forgot about the windows and the DW says we have to hand wash and dry them so we dont have any water spots.

The best tool I found was the neighbor kid. He waxes also.

We hire a guy that washes campers in Az. It is either raining or dusty here so I don't usually wash it at home. I do hose it off from time to time.

telescoping microfiber mop pad, then I use a microfiber wash mitt for the lower half and detailing. Works extremely well and I use Meguires car wash soap.

Truck and RV washing kit I found at Sam's Club that has a telescoping brush that water flows through. I also found out Goo Gone does wonders on nasty sticky stuff and the dirt on the white rubber of the city water plug. Put a little on and wiped it off and the darn thing looks like new!
