I just use water from a spray bottle to "rehydrate" the bugs then wipe off with micro-fiber cloth. I was always afraid to use the dryer sheets on my TT or vehicles paint job.

I have not noticed them being too abrasive on my fiberglass. It does not take much pressure to get things off. Be sure to use plenty of water.

A good thick coat of Meguires Marine wax, spray it with water I the evening when it's cool, let it soak and they come right off.

I keep mine polished well maybe 4 x's per year. Just soap and water and my brush will get them off no problem yet. But If I remember right, last year they had a vendor selling a product that bugs can't stick to. I was going to buy it last year but didn't if they are at the rally this year I will. It's pretty costly compared to the turd wax I use now. Keep it waxed and they will come off with very little effort while washing your unit.

I tried dryer sheets dampened in water the other day and was amazed how well it worked. Have to rinse off quickly afterwards though as it seems to want to dry to whitish haze pretty quick, but it rinses off very easily. My only concern is the effects it can have on the paint finish over the long term...not so sure I want to find out the hard way. It certainly doesn't seem to have any effect but will it over the long run?
