Anyone use 'Bugslide' on the front end?

It's very popular in the motorcycle community. Does a good job removing bugs & leaving a shine. It's fairly expensive... about $60 for 64 oz.

Anyone use it on their coach to remove bugs?

I use Harley Davidson's Bug Remover. $8.95 for a 16oz. spray bottle. Works great as long as you follow the directions. There Part No. 93600022.

What directions are those?

Do you use it on your coach's front end? on the Diamond Shield?

The entire front end. Upper cap, windshield, and yes the Diamond Shield on the lower side.
Directions say, wet down the area to be cleaned, spray on the Bug Off and let it set for at least one (1) minute. Then wipe and rinse area off.
I've had excellent results using it. In one campground we were in I had a couple of neighbors wanting to know what I was using. The process was effortless for me.

Dow Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Cleaner, about $3.75 a can. Best stuff I've ever used to remove bugs, and its safe . Spray it on a cool surface (out of direct sunlight), let it sit for 5-10 minutes and brush em off. I use a soft brush on my extention handle. After the Bubbles sit for a time, wet em down and brush em off.
Now use it on the front of my cars also, to get rid of gug butts. Works great, better than any of the commerical "Bug Removers" I've used in the past.

Does that stuff take the wax off?

You may not believe this but I use a kitchen cloth that wipes bugs off like magic. I use Aerospace 303 on my Diamondshield, which helps but this cloth is the answer for the windshield and front end. Does not effect wax or finish.
I use it with straight water. Wrap the cloth on the end of my extend a pole. No ladder or chemical required.

I use rain-x on the glass. Makes the bugs slide right off and makes it much easier to see when it rains.


For the paint I just keep it waxed well.

Yeah, it probably does take the wax off, but you don't think the commerical bug removers don't remove wax. Or the famous wet dryer sheets that you rub the surface down with. Think that leaves your wax alone? For me, this stuff works, it's cheap, and it's safe.
I just simply re-apply the Turtle Wax Ice I use to re wax the front cap and front end.
Just posting the Bubbles as an alternative. I even think I picked up the tip on this forum, an older post.
