    The installation’s publicly accessible car wash, located on South Headquarters Avenue on Fort McCoy’s cantonment area, has many new upgrades that members of the Fort McCoy community might not know about, said Karla Rynes with the Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (DFMWR).

    A new Washworld Razor was installed in the automatic bay in recent months, Rynes said. The new system has features that includes energy efficient motors that save on operating costs, sealed gearboxes that help eliminate oil changes on the system, high-quality fiberglass enclosures that withstand harsh wash-bay conditions for longer life, and more.

    The new wash system also offers four types of washes through the automatic bay, including an ultimate wash for $11, supreme wash for $10, shine wash for $8, and express wash for $7. A supreme wash includes: underbody wash, triple-foaming polish, spin clean side blasters, ultimate rain shine, foam-action cleaner, spot-free rinse, and more.

    “It is important to note with the new car-wash system that when you’re entering the automatic bay with your vehicle, you need to center your vehicle between the reflective blue lines to avoid having the machine make contact with your vehicle,” Rynes said. “If the machine makes contact with your vehicle, it will cause the system to shut down, open the exit, and instruct you to exit the bay. So, again, it is very important to center your vehicle when entering the wash bay.”

    The system accepts credit cards for payment as well as cash or tokens.

    “There is a token machine at the car wash, or you can purchase tokens at McCoy’s Community Center in building 1571,” Rynes said.

    The car wash also has a self-service bay available and two vacuums available for use, Rynes said.

    “One vacuum has the capability of just vacuuming or you can shampoo your car as well,” she said. “We have three different fragrances available for shampooing – black ice, new car, or wild cherry. The cost for the vacuum service is $1.”
