    Any products I can use to make it easier to wash out the under carriage?

    Thinking of something like a hose extension, so I don't have to get down underneath.

    Bad back.

    I like the Duke Canon Naval Triumph soap for the initial wash. If it's real bad I follow that up with Tea Tree Antifungal soap.

    Not really sure how you are planning to wash the underneath of your truck with out getting down underneath.

    I usually spray the underside down to get the large chunks at a DIY car wash.

    At home I spray Simple Green all over and let sit, then pressure wash good with the pressure washer. I use a water proof Tyvek suit, goggles so I dont get filthy or stuff in my eyes.

    Attachment above for the pressure washer looks interesting.....I just cant see it doing that great of a job though.

    Then again I'm into auto detailing so if it doesn't look new when I'm done, well I'm not done.

    I use a pressure washer pivoting coupler and just put the nozzle at a 45 degree angle. It works well enough, but the pressure forces the head into the ground pretty hard. I am sure the home depot roller washer would be easier for most people.

    That is way overpriced compared to the home depot item that isn't much different
