Last Saturday
We ran into a very nice couple from PA, while we were spending the night in West Monroe LA, "Pavillion Rv Park"
when they were done seting up for the evenig, they began to wipe off the bugs and road grime off the truck and fiver.
My wife asked what they were using becuase they had a small pan with just a small amount of water and a white sponge looking thing.
Turned out it was a MR.CLEAn magic eraser. wholly cow it was taking the love bugs and butterflies right off with no scratches.
I tried it last night on our fiver and in about 3 minutes i had the whole front cleaned up as far as i caould reach and used only about a quart of water to rinse out the eraser pad.
elbow grease was almost none.

Wet a small dryer sheet and the bugs come off with very little effort...One will do the entire front of my MH!

My only concern would be what else does it take off? I have used it in the house on a wall and the paint came off too.
I have used the wet used dryer sheets and they seem to do really good.

Spray the front of your unit with PAM cooking spray, and the bugs will just wipe off!

WD40 works also but rather not have more stuff(oils) to clean off...If you've never tried a dryer sheets you'll be totally amazed...

Do not leave the cooking spray on for very long. In the Texas heat, it will bake to a very sticky residue and that is the dickens to get of.

I'll second the effectiveness of Rejex. I used it for two years and it works great, including on the windshield.

After you use RejeX (twice a year) do you just rinse off bugs with each cleaning or do you have to wipe them off ? If you have to wipe them off I'll stick with cheap dryer sheets....
Thanks for the information.
