Truck Washes
« on: September 05, 2005, 03:06:45 PM »
Has anyone ever taken a trailer or fifth wheel through one of those truck washes? Just wondering if it can be done without leaks or damage, especially to the rooftop appendages.

Read your owners manual.   Mine specifically warns against using pressure washers.   It is an aluminum sided trailer and I suspect the pressure would wreck the caulking between panels and may even 86 window gaskets, and furnance and water heater hardware.
