Trico View Glass Treatment

Has anyone tried Trico View Glass Treatment on their windshields?
Am heading further south and am looking for something to make 'love-bug' removal easier.

By the way, based on that user name, I'm kind-a assuming you ride a Honda Goldwing Trike??? Anyway, don't be fooled by "snake oils" that claim all that kind of stuff. Not only have I seen them NOT WORK personally, but the previous owner of our coach, an '04 Itasca Horizon 36GD with full body paint, paid a pretty penny, around $998.00 for "Glass Treatment" that was supposed to do just what you're thinking your product will do but, ours as also supposed to prevent "Rock chips" etc. from EVER occurring.

Yeah sure it does. Since we acquired this coach, right at 4 years ago and have put right at 20,000 miles on it, we encountered no less that 8 decent sized rock chips that required repairs, one even developed into a 13" crack that got repaired, but also, we've encountered a few zillion bugs too. Some I thought SHOULD have damaged the windshield.

Nothing is really gauarnteed to make them easily removable. When a bug looses it's life dedicating it to your windshield, all the chemicals in the blood, bone structure(if any) hormones, etc. just about instantly harden due to wind, temperature, speed and other influences.

There are some chemicals that "sometimes" make them easier to remove. I have, on occasion, used Hydrogen Peroxide. Man, you ought to see those little dudes start to fizz up when I spray that mixture on them. Anyway, if I were you, I'd save my money for gas and just soak them a tad before applying any strength to remove them. Good luck.

Rainx has been good for me. Used it for years. It takes treatment much more frequently than advertised but that is easy and it does have a nice repellent coating. love-bugs are definitely a mess but nothing has ever made removal for me any easier than Rainx.

I've used rejex for years. I do the whole vehicle including the glass. Works great against love bugs.

Regular carnauba wax will do the trick and much cheaper.
