It's a stretch but 6'2" height and my long ape arms allow me to reach the center from my 6ft step ladder. I do most from top & sides also. Only part I can't really reach is about 3 inches in the small area between cab roof and front cap above windshield. Those bugs get to stay!

Thanks Wandering, at 5'8" its beyond a stretch for me! I was thinking of two ladders with some 2x12 planks to stand on. Thanks for the response.

We just use water and soft bristle brush at the end of each travel day. Stops build up. We haven't had any complaints from RV parks as long as they know you aren't washing the whole rig.

I've got bug splatter that has etched in the film of the overhead have tried Everything I do believe to remove it. No luck. It also looks like the narrow film on the hood is discoloring can not get it clean.

Just got back from Biloxi. Washed my cap this morning with my pressure washer and Thexford wash and wax and scrub, scrub scrub. Now into the storage yard until my trip to the keys in June. Next month the Love bugs arrive and to hard to deal with so no RV'ing in May

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

I think you didn't come to Southeast Arkansas, or you would know what bugs really are! 3 weeks ago, the gnats were so thick I couldn't get from truck to farm house. Took a microfiber rag, spray bug remover, and 2 hours of elbow grease to get 'em off. In another 2 months, the mosquitoes will be thicker than air. And driving at dusk will be a noisy proposition!

First round trip Atlanta to Jacksonville has made this topic very interesting to me. Yep, it looks like someone peppered the front of our rig. I did put a fresh coat of Meguires on the front before we left so maybe it will be easier to clean? I read and read and dryer sheets or chemicals seem to be the way to go. One guy said that hot hot water works really good. So.... while steam mopping the kitchen floor I had a thought. The meat thermometer under the mop read 170 degrees on high, 160 on low. Before I go out and delaminate my front cap, other than staying away from the decal, does anyone have any experience/advice with this? I do realize that it is a bonded structure and would not risk it if there is any possibility of damage. Anyone?
