Use a bucket of water and the extendable handle window washer "tool" from CW. Do the windshield first, then the body below the windshield. Of course, my gasser sits lower so I don't need a ladder.

SAS30.......They make nylon scrub pads (looks like an old Brillo pad, but made of larger nylon threads). I spray the window cleaner on, scrub it with the nylon scrubber and then spray it again and wipe off.

I wax the front of my coach about every third trip. I have the 3M shield and I use this: http://www.irv2.com/attachments/phot...m/PB190002.JPG
to clean the 3M. It's a cleaner for plexiglass motorcycle windshields. If you have just paint, Pledge works well to clean off the bugs and leave a coating for the next cleaning.

I tried the Bounce one time, but it was too messy for me.

I have never had a problem with RV parks not allowing me to wash the windshield on my rigs. If you are concerned, suggest you ask them first. As for cleaning, I use plain water and a long handled brush to get the dried stuff off. Then I use a wet towel to wipe it clean. Then squeegee it off. Also have found that Rain X helps to make the job easier.
