Best cleaner for 2014 International CCD?

I found a great article on 'Washing Exterior' of Airstream - but they do not list optimal products (except wax products - I just want to get off the dirt!) for use. I have heard to avoid certain chemicals and products. In one thread, someone recommended Simple Green Car Wash - but then I found a bunch of haters of Simple Green online (off Air Forums). Thanks in advance! Chris.

I have been using Meguiar's Deep Crystal Car Wash. Same liquid soap,I have been washing my cars and boats with for many years. Followed by a light waxing wth liquid Turtle Wax. I bought some Weberize but have not gotten around to trying it yet.

Most any quality car wash soap will suffice. Keeping your brush clean is the real trick.

I use Meguiars Detailers Shampoo Plus. Ordered gallon jug with pump. Good on both the ginormous truck and ginormous trailer with an Extend-A-Brush. I sometimes add Calgon Water Softener to bucket in hard water areas. Sheet the water to rinse and little is left afterwards.

A portable water softener (Flow Pur is one brand) would be the cats meow. How well the soap rinses off is the determining factor for quality, IMO.
