If anybody would like to come over and show me how to do this on my motorhome, I would provide a Coke! Heck, I would even splurge for beer!

What has worked for me, is spraying unscented Pledge! Yes the furniture cleaner. Apply it on before I leave on a trip and let dry.
When I return home just water hose it off, bugs and grime come right off.

Just my 2cents on the matter.....

I tried the dryer sheets, but they did not work for me. I have the clear plastic protective film on the front of my motor home. I do not recommend the plastic. Once it is penetrated by big bugs, stones, misc. road debris, etc., it looks bad.


Note on the Scrubbing bubbles: I love the stuff, but it discolored the black plastic on the mirror housings of my car, so I no longer use it.


A good coat of "303 Protectant" after a complete wash really makes cleaning and bug removal much easier the next time.

I highly recommend "Awesome Orange". (I keep wanting to call it "Agent Orange.") It's a non-abrasive liquid that "softens" the little dried-on critters. Used it on my 5er last year (before I got a Class A) and found it works great. It's $1 at the Dollar Tree.

I am guessing emason83 is right on !!!
If are going to use anything like that,,,
you will need to re-wax !!!
A good coat of wax helps to make it easer next time !!!

Hydrogen peroxide works great. Use and rinse off.

My RV dealer hooked me on Orange "Crush" cleaning solution for the bugs and black streaks.
