Got my 1st class A a couple months ago (previously a travel trailer guy). I'm about done adding my own goodies to it and a question suddenly dawned on me. What is the best way to clean that large windshield when you're out on the road ?

We coat all glass with "Rejex" twice a year and when stopping for the night we get out the folding ladder, washcloth, straight water, and towel and in 10 min. the entire front is clean. DW on the bottom half and me on the top half. Letting them bake on for a few days takes a little longer.

Use a ladder if you want, but an RV extendable handle window washer with a squeegee works great for me. I sometimes clean it in the evening if in the shade and at fuel stops. If the truck stop washer water is dirty, I'll mix up my own. I'm usually done before the fuel tank is full. At the end of a trip, I might get up on a ladder, but not very often.

I used to do the routine with ladder, spray some Simple Green, rub and rinse etc. etc.
Now, I use this cloth on the end of my extend a pole squeegee using a bucket of "Straight Water". No chemical of any sort. Wrap this cloth on the end of the pole and wipe the bugs off. Easy as falling off a log but not half as dangerous.
Will not harm paint, Diamond shield or Wax finish.
I have a small tub, and a extendable squeegee / scrub pad combo in the basement storage next to the wet bay. Happens to be the same side as the gas cap. When filling up with gas, I add a little water to the tub and clean the window. Don't have to be perfect, it going to get dirty again anyway.
