Question Waxing front of trailer ??

Would applying a good coat of wax, on a cleaned front end of my TT and NOT buffing it ,until after towing to the campground and back home (THEN WASH), help in removing bugs easier ??

I don't think so. Leaving the wax on there baking in the hot sun might leave streaks that will be hard to buff out later. Just keep it waxed and slick as possible to make the bug removal as easy as it is going to get.

WD-40 helps to remove the "big" bugs and somewhat baked on bugs. I've used it and it works better than anything else I've tried.

Best thing I've used to get bugs (love bugs) off the front of my vehicles is dryer sheets (like Bounce, only I ude store brand). Just wet them and rub gently and they come right off. I keep a good coat of wax on as well.
