Cleaning bug splat

Does anyone have a good recommendation for getting 3 weeks of bug splat off the front of our coach?

I use my pressure washer when really bad. Always have a good coat of wax on the front cap to assist in bug removal.

I use a Bug Remover Part # 93600022 16oz.spray bottle that is sold at Harley Davidson dealers. I was led onto the product and gave it a try. Works GREAT! Trick is wet the area down, spray this on either the entire area or a section at a time (I prefer the latter) and WAIT at least one minute before washing it off as the instructions read. I've never used an easier product to get them off. Cost is $8.95 for a spray bottle. I've done the front of the coach twice already and probably have enough to do it a couple more times. Good Luck, check it out I'm sure glad I did.

I use a heavy concentration of Dawn dish soap and water. I apply it and let it soak, renewing every five minutes or so.

You need to let anything you apply to soak in.

On the windshield while traveling I use "Sprayway Glass Cleaner" Again I spray it on and let it soak.

I buy that at Sam's Club, or Costco, can't remember which.

The discount store brand of spray bathtub cleaner, and a plastic gift card as a scraper. Let it soak slide them off with the card rinse. Works great on glass, use on gel coat or paint at your own risk. YMMV

peroxide dissolves bug guts. I use it on the motorcycle in the summer and spray in the radiator of the truck and car.. then hose out the yuck. On the motorhome I usually clean the front daily with a soft brush on a long handle and bucket of soapy water..
