It's that time of year to put the sprinkler under your truck! Get busy!

Just tried to do this, then realized that the one hose split because it was full of water when it got really cold, then the 2nd hose I ran over with a lawn mover. I'm not good at keeping hoses alive.

Local spray wash gets lots of my money on the few days the streets are dry enough to make it worth it over the winter. Every nook and cranny inside and outside frame rails... Honestly doubt a sprinkler will do the job well enough, but it's better than nothing.

I love the cold. If it were up to me it would be overcast and 45F all year round.

However you choose to do it, it's time. This is a friendly reminder to all to preserve these machines!

I've always had a deep seeded fear that those spray wash places are required to recycle their water (and the salt content). I believe that has been sort of a "regulation" these days....and maybe it's just the "rinse" that is actually fresh water? I've got no concrete evidence of this per se....

If the salt made it through a second rinse cycle I'd know... You get this awful white haze. And you'd see it when the droplets dry on glass. The place I go doesn't at least. Damn good water quality actually.

I know, I was saying the final rinse IS fresh water...my fear is the other cycles are NOT.

Gotcha. Yeah who knows. I only use rinse. I just don't have a pressure washer at my disposal anymore so spending 6-8 bucks is nice and easy.

There is also a product called salt-away that you can use to help remove salt from your truck. Can get it on amazon or marine supply place. Think I even seen it in hardware stores now.

Mark - Just a great looking 110.
As far as the fresh water rinse, I know in the marine environment it really helps to use boat soap to help disolve the salt. But yes anything is a good thing!

You're not the first person to tell me that...

May truck has a galvanised bulkhead and chassis, so I don't worry too much about rust. It will get a rebuild when it needs it.
