Any suggestions for a location where I can successfully wash our travel trailer? We live N of Dallas, TX. I understand the truck stops in Anna, TX do not have truck wash areas.

I'd do a Google search for the location of interest; bigger audience than this Forum.

Don’t know of any DIY washes large enough for a travel trailer.
Camping World in Denton offers RV “spa” services. Don’t know of any other north of Dallas.
There is a Blue Beacon truck wash that will also wash RVs south of Dallas on I-20 just west of I-45 that would not be difficult from Plano. Have never used either so can’t speak to how well they do.

Do you have a Blue Beacon truck wash near you? We've had great luck with them. We drive through the Blue Beacon about four times a year and they always do a great job.

I went to the Blue Beacon just west of Fort Worth about 6 months ago. They did a good job except my Furrion camera stopped working shortly after. My bad, for not telling them to avoid spraying it when the guy asked me what to be careful of.
And it looks like they have one in Denton.

We did the grand loop and found there was a dearth of manual car washes in the west. Maybe water restrictions?

I've used that BlueBeacon and there is one in Ennis on I45 that's easier in/out. I can't remember exactly where on 287 near Decatur there is a RV park that has a car wash with RV bays. Found on yelp DFW Truckstop near 635-I35E that has a truckwash
Look on craigslist, Facebook marketplace for a mobil car wash crew.
