We just completed our first trip in our motor home and noticed quite a few dead bugs on the overhang front. What is the best solution to not collecting the bugs. Is there something that can be sprayed on or .??????

Age old problem. What I do is every night when I stop, I get out my little scrub brush on a long handle and some mild dishwashing soap and scrub them off. Then a little spray detailer and I'm good for the next day.

I dont know about keeping them off, but this stuff is great for taking them off. Every Harley store carries it for sure. BUGSLIDE™.. It works on everything, and contains a little bit of polish as well. Spray it on, wipe the bugs off, buff it lightly if you want for a shine.

For years I have used RainX on the entier front. It has never damaged any paint finish and greatly assists in removing bugs including Love Bugs. Our new 2014 Phaeton will have a Bra to protect the front.

Just apply a good wax and call it Macaroni and go RVing. Cleaning bugs off is still way better than working .
