Question Bugs on front- what to use

When it's hot soaking bugs with water doesn't work to well. Anybody use Bugs n All? I was reading about it and seems to work. A little pricy. I have a new Newmar and they put that protective plastic film on the front. I think it makes the bug problem worse because it's soft.

The solution is to get the front nice and clean, then apply Rejex! It makes it really easy to remove bugs, even Lovebugs! It's also very easy to apply!

I've tried various different ways to combat this over the last seven years. The best thing I have found that works is water and white distilled vinegar. I use a telescoping windshield scrubber and collapsible bucket. It only takes about a quarter cup vinegar to a quart or so water. I dont measure, just guessing. Wet the bugs down with the vinegar solution using the scrubber, go over lightly several times and they just dissolve off. I dry with a swiffer mop handle sporting a clean microfiber towel. Done in 10 minutes and never leave the ground

I use Pink Solution. You mix it with hot water, spray it on, wait four minutes,
and either wipe or hose the bugs off.
It eats organic material and the directions tell you not to leave it on longer than four minutes. Keeps the front of the MH easy to keep "BUG FREE".

I use bounce dryer sheets dipped in water. Bugs and guts easily come off; imagine what it puts into clothes in the dryer?

Use it on the 3M film on my coach, has not yellowed. I also used it on the full body paint 5th wheel as well; Sikkens paint with clear coat. I did not see any long term issues.

Murphy's oil soap, works with hot or cold water, removes love bug remains which is one of the stickiest bugs to hit the front of a coach.

What bugs? You should not be hitting any, I killed them all on last trip in the MH.
