Windshields and Bugs

A few weeks ago we took our maiden voyage in our new 2016 Georgetown 369XL. The unobstructed view going down the road is spectacular. However, 3/4 of the bug population between PA and VA and back somehow ended up on our windshield. Thus, blocking that spectacular view. On the way back we pulled into a rest stop and SOB Class A pulled in behind us. Out of curiosity, I walked over and looked at their windshield. They must have captured every bug we missed because theirs was covered also. I probably either offended the guy or gave him the impression I was totally insane, when I started laughing hysterically. Unfortunately, he didn't stick around long enough to tell him about my curiosity.

Needless to say, on our next trip to Lowes, we bought a squeegee, cleaning solution and extension rod. This should be on the top of everyone's "Gotta Have" list and I will never leave home without it again.

Ijust treated my windshield and the front with Rejex. Bugs wipe off with a damp paper towel. The Rejex did ok on the windshield but nothing beats Rainx.

Ditto on knocking off the bug population on my windshield. I bought all the tools and also look for the long windshield cleaners that are at some of the truck stops along the highways for cleanings while driving. I also found that two good costs of rainx help too.
