    I give mine a good hand job at home once a week in the summer. In the winter I'll quickly spray it off in a wash bay, just long enough to get the crap off. I don't get too carried away though because its dirty again in 10 minutes. But knowing you did it.... that's what counts!

    Every week or two for me. I just hating going to Blue Beacon because they do such a lousy job. That crap polishing stuff they use streaks everywhere, so when I go there I tell them not to use it, and brush the truck and trailer instead. Still looks horrible. I've found a few small independent guys in my lanes that I use. One guy in Oregon charges $70 for truck and trailer and does an outstanding job. Brushes everything by hand and no acid wash or polisher. I only wash there if I can get back on the road to air dry it immediately.
