Thanks. I use 303 on the front, not wax and apply it 5 or 6 times a year so hopefully all is good. Life in love bug country to get a lot of practice. 😎😎😎

Mix about one part hydrogen peroxide with one part water in a spray bottle. You can spray bugs on glass and the body work. Let them foam/fizzle then wash off. This is something I learned from the sport touring motorcycle community and find it works well and does not harm the finish or remove wax.

I was planning on waxing (Protect All) the nose of my RV last night already, then read this thread about how to remove bugs. We tried the dryer sheet idea and it WORKED. The bugs came right off. No damage to the paint at all, and the bugs wiped right away.

Started using the Wash/Wax product on my last coach and I love it. For cleaning bugs off the front I use the scrubby pad that came with the starter kit I bought (at one of our IRV2 rallys) with some of the liquid product sprayed on it. The bugs will wipe right off, especially if the surface has been previously coated, and the product provides UV protection. The five year old Diamond Shield on our last coach still looked new, no deterioration or discoloration.

This is all I use on the entire coach now, and has been for a couple of years. I can clean and wax the entire coach now in a couple of hours rather than a couple of days. It gets done more frequently.

I spray Castro Super cleaner on the front of the RV. Glass and paint on front. Then wash it with a good foaming soap solution (Dawn). Then wash off with hose with spray end. Works well.

Only one way for me - dryer sheets soaked in warm water... Takes bugs completely off... Follow with a wet towel to remove dryer sheet residue.... Look as good as new.....

Years ago while camping a race i was cleaning the front and couple elder rv's came up and said you want to clean that in seconds. I said would that not be great if you could.

He said hang on he came back with a pump sprayer and sprayed a mix on the front it remove the bugs tar and cleaned like new.

I wiped over with water because i was concerned about what it was. He said it is pink perfection. You can get it a lot of autoparts stores.

Used it for years now works fantastic.
