I want warm water because it helps to get off those stuck-like-glue bugs on the front end & windshield, also the dirt (often mud) in the summer (and frozen slush in the winter) in the fender wells. While our home is on a hard-surfaced road, we farm and our fields are on dirt roads. I can't always avoid driving my Nitro on the dirt roads - wish I could - but there's not always a pickup truck nearby for me to take to the field! In warm weather, when driving at night the bugs sound like rain hitting your vehicle, they're so thick.
In winter the slush builds up and freezes in the fender wells. In the past I just haven't worried about that, just waited for the weather to warm up and it would melt and fall off. But I don't want that situation with my Nitro!!!!!!!!!!
Now I'm bummed that I may not be able to run warm water through the pressure washer. I appreciate the heads-up on that, HighVoltageNITRO! We have several outside hydrants so hooking up to cold water is not a problem. I was just trying to make washing my Nitro easier. In the six weeks since I've had my Nitro, I've had to wash it several times a week to keep it clean. All just the consequences of living in the country. But I wouldn't trade it for anything!!!!!!!!!
