PAM Cooking Spray Bug Protectant?

Thoughts on using on front of trailer for ease of removal of bug splatter? Any horror stories or recommendations?

Don't It will attract dirt and dust like a magnet. Use a good wax or polymer and they should come off just fine.

I remove the bug splatter using "Bounce" dryer sheets after soaking in water.

After the water becomes soapy/ slippery feeling.....lightly rub over the bug splatter in circular motion without strong pressure repeatedly.....you'll start to see/feel them come off. Use another sheet when it stops being effective.

Rinse the entire area thoroughly.

I have used Pam for years on my cars,RV, motorcycles for the lovebugs here in Florida. No ill effects, does attract dust, but washes off easily. JMHO

On a recent visit to the U.K. I seen a couple of fifth wheels ( quite rare) and they had bug screens like we have in windows wrapped around the front cap, they looked tailored to fit they also have them on their trailers. I have no idea where these can be had but one was on a flagstaff and looked good.

Wink PAM

Thanks for the feedback. I'm "sticking" with the wax.

I've heard of it for trailers and vehicles. On my rockwood I used Pam one camping weekend when the door was getting too squeaky after some rain. The Pam soaked into the gelcoat and didn't want to wash off. That says to me it needs some wax, and I was thinking a fresh wax on the front before our next major trip is the way to go.
