I recommend driving only in reverse. That will keep bugs off the front. You could also put a high gloss polish or wax on the front, it makes bug removal a bit easier. It also helps to wet down the bugs before trying to get them off, wet bugs don't stick as well as baked on ones.

After a buggy day, I use a soft bristle brush and a bucket of water. They come off easily.

Agree with maintaining a good wax job is important, but this week tried laundry dryer sheets to clean the front when washing the RV and unbelievable how great they easily and fast they removed the mess/stains. I am sold on them unless I hear they cause some damage to the paint, but hoping the wax protection takes care of that.

Try some Rejex. We use it on the whole coach including the windshield. Most of the bugs including the Florida Love Bugs will wash off with just a regular garden hose. One application will last over 6 months but we apply a fresh coat to the front before each trip.

It is easy to apply. You will use more the first coat. It says to apply in the shade and in cool temps. We apply it in the sun in the fall and spring in our driveway. We do watch the weather reports and try to do it when no rain is forecast.

I was amazed at how well Bug-B-Gone works! Just spray it on a cool dry surface covered with bugs. After a minute, 90% come off with a strong spray and the others with a soft brush. It must be Magic!

Try PAM spray from the grocery store. Works on baking pans and the coach front.

After a little more experience you'll be able to drive between the bugs...seriously, I just keep the front of the coach well waxed whenever were on the road.

Once they are on there I agree that this stuff works amazingly well.
