And I'm going with John Frances. This is a 1932 Moreland with a custom body for washing electrical insulators on telephone poles. This equipment was called an insulator washing tower. Apparently the Los Angeles Public Works Department had at least two of these trucks. The open cab is rather curious, it seems these trucks were based on a fire engine chassis, complete with pump. Thanks to Dan Souday for these very interesting photos from the Los Angeles Public Library.

WOW!! Actually spraying water on live (???) electrical lines??? Also what did LA have in the air which would create conductive surface on the insulators requireing them to be washed??

As long as the water is under pressure and high resistance (distilled) it is safe. Still done today. The insulators accumulate dirt and dust in the dry season then when fog or mist hits you get a nice lightning show! The picture shows them washing 34.5 kV dead-ends in an industrial section loaded with chemicals and soot in the air.

They wash insulators commonly on the 500 kV tower lines even the 800 kV DC lines every few months.

Mr Blake
OK?? I Guess?? This must be an industrial desert deal as I have never seen it done.. On the east side Mother Nature does all our washing for us.. Sometimes a little too hard and takes the lines and/or poles with her!! I guess the Rubber tires and rubber hose would provide some more insulation??

Thanks for taking the time to answer me, We learn something new on this site everyday..
