Question Your bug removal solution?

Anyone want to share their "magic" solution to getting the bugs off your RV. I've tried many (home/commercial) just wondering if someone has found THE answer?

I apply Rejex to the front before any long trips. When I stop for the night it's really easy to get the bugs off!

I know a guy that works for Fed EX, they use WD-40 on their vehicles in the morning and rinse them off with a water hose in the evening. He claims that the bugs just rinse off.

Rejex works pretty darn well. And as a test I put 303 on one side of the windshield, and Rejex on the other. I couldn't tell the difference relative to which was the easiest to clean. In fact I forgot which side got which treatment!.

with really tuff bugs on our car, truck, and trailer AND windshield, I use a Great Scrubber cut from a Red Floor cleaning pad, used for Electric Floor Buffers.
been using them for years to clean my Dutch Ovens, wont scratch the finishes.

wd-40...yikes

I have to say I have NEVER heard of good ol' wd-40 being sprayed to do anything other than lube or lossed rusted hardware....I agree with above...I wouldn't on mine. Not saying it doesn't work....just being careful.

We just use a very small bucket with hot water and a long handled brush on our 5th wheel. I think the trick is to clean them off after every travel day so they do not bake on. We have never been denied permission to take the bugs off in this manner. Usually campgrounds do not want you breaking out the hose.

Wd-40

I have been using wd -40 to remove road tar from my vehicles for years. It will not harm your paint!

Is there any certain rejex you use? Looks like there are different types of them.

This seems to be the best 'solution' for us --> Home

About $35 for truck and large 5er WITH rain-x treatment afterwards !

Such hard work too - sitting in the truck while they do it

and on edit, rejex --> http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no...keywords=rejex
