I have used a hose pipe for many, many years now to was my van, but I always avoid aiming the actual jet of water at the fridge vents, and so far to date I have never had any problems. Sometimes I also put a flexi-brush on the hose pipe, but I am careful when I do the vents with it.

Suggest covering with winter vent covers before washing. Can't remember their cost,but they're very cheap.

I don't think you need to worry, unless you delibrately point the hose pipe up into the vents.

Hi,

Ive never noticed any water getting in through the vents, though I don't spray water directly into them,

Regards,
