RV Cleaning Place between BRC and Seattle?

Post by pedroescobar » Thu Jun 07, 2018 9:28 am

I'd like to try and avoid going into Reno after the event but would like to find a good place to wash the exterior of the RV on my way back to Seattle this year. Anyone have any suggestions on a place to wash the exterior of an RV between BRC and Seattle? I've thought about bringing it to my house and using my pressure washer with a water/vinegar/soap mix for the initial spray down (I have a foam canon thing to wash my car), but I don't really have a good spot to park a 27' RV in my driveway as it is on a slope.

I've stopped at the carriage in Klamath falls and done the exterior of "Suzie" my RV for 8 years. Turned into my headed home ritual. Also clean up the interior to about the 90% mark, shower, eat dinner and continue drive home to Gig Harbor.

Right by Arbys restaurant on the main drag.

4958, 4709 S 6th St, Klamath Falls, OR 97603

Has a laundromat too. Toss clothing in first thing, detail Suzie, eat at Arby's, and scoot....

Nice thanks for the correction... Looking forward to it and that seems like a great plan.

I assume you’ll be passing through Cedarville on your way off the playa.
Right on the main intersection is a gas station that has a pressure-wand car wash thing. I usually go there and do an initial clean off for the ride back to Seattle.
And yeah, Klamath Falls has facilities.
