Best I've found for bugs on my RV is Seafoam Bugs-B-Gone. Find it at most auto stores. Buy it, you won't be sorry!

Go to the Dollarstore and get a spray bottle of "Awesome" - and that is what it is. Spray on, wipe off! Take a guess at the
price

Careful with Awesome...great for cleaning mold off awnings but some have reported it has done a number on paint surfaces and decals. I am not speaking from experience, but simply from what I have read in other posts.

We live in the bug capital of florida. We use hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle. Spray the fresh bug splats and it will foam them away. The hydrogen peroxide will break down the proteins leaving a foamy area where the bug was just wipe off no scrubbing the solution will not affect your wax or paint job.

As stated above hydrogen peroxide works great, apply and then wash it off.

I used Awesome to take black streaks on our old Mallard TT. Took of the streaks, the decals, the paint... We had a white trailer with silver spots, but no streaks!

Bingo!!! Nothing like a very convincing testimony to grab your attention!

Maybe a bug spattered front cap should be a sign of pride ? What do you think?


Forester 2451s

Wandering -- I have a question, what set up did you use to have full access to the fairing for clean up? I work from the top and the sides but still struggle to reach the center over the hood!
