Outside Shower / Power Washer

The storage place we use does not have any running water and I am interested in at least rinsing the beast off prior to parking it until the next trip. I am wondering about the feasibility of connecting a small electric power washer to the outside shower point on our 27FB. Finding the right plumbing parts and pieces shouldn't be too hard but will the water pump keep up with the demand of the pressure washer? Any reason this would be a dumb idea?

Don't do it. If you don't have leaks now you will after pressure washing. The high pressure will force water past seals and break caulk bonds. I won't even wash a dirt bike with a pressure washer much less a $70,000 trailer. Soap and water are your best bet and light scrubbing with a T-shirt or soft brush.
