    Question about washing my fifth wheel.

    May seem like a silly question, but I was wondering if you should pull in the slide outs or leave them out when washing the fifth wheel?

    Re: Question about washing my fifth wheel.

    Hi ash,

    Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum and family. We have a great bunch of people here with lots of information and all willing to share their knowledge when needed.

    You can wash it either way, but with the slides out, I would not use high pressure on the seal area around the slide. I do mine both ways... when it gets done.

    Enjoy the forum and your Sundance.

    Question about washing my fifth wheel.

    I do mine both ways. It our rig was somewhere where it got really dirty then I make sure I open them and clean them off too.

    Re: Question about washing my fifth wheel.

    I start out with my slide outs in. That way I can easily reach the area above them. Then I move them out so I can wash all the slides...Don

    Re: Question about washing my fifth wheel.

    Since I wash mine while it's on our seasonal site (just did it yesterday), I do it with the slides out. To rinse, I set the nozzle on a flat spray and don't force any water past the seals.
