I've had really good luck with Camco's Black Streak Remover. Available at Wally World for about $5 or $6. It's a spray. I spray it on the bugs, wait 2 or 3 minutes and then wash the windshield and/or front end. It appears to really loosen up "stuff". Instructions say you should wash it off shortly there after. I've found in the process of scrubbing and rinsing things come out pretty clean. I use it on my cars too - especially before taking it to a car wash

I always keep a good coat of spray wax on the front. Lots of ways to remove those love bugs. Getting them right off every day is a must because of the acid in their smashed little bodies. If you have good wax on the front a little windex takes them right off, Pledge also works, Pam works but leaves a mess, almost any cleaner will work getting them off if done soon enough, just don't forget to re-spray some wax back on the front, that is why Pledge works so well there is wax in it.

I use Walmart's bug removing windshield washer. I keep some in a spray bottle. At the end of the day I spray the front of the coach, let it sit for a couple of minutes, then wash the bugs off with clear water and a soft brush. Works like a charm. I tried other brands of washer fluid, but Walmart's works the best so far.
I have to credit my buddy Don for this idea.

Here's something I've learned from owning motorcycles. Cleaning the plastic windshield with a cleaner is a no no. Instead, I take a towel with warm water and hold it agains the bug (s) and they disintergrate. On the RV I've found a good coat of wax and a strong stream of a hose works well.

Bug Removal

The best thing I have found is the black streak remover. Just spray it on, let is soak for about a minute and wash it off.

Due to the water restrictions, I have used a couple of waterless car wash products that are out there. They work well. I have also sometimes used some water from a bucket only to help soften the bugs, but the trick is to get them off daily, not let them get baked on for weeks.
If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.
