Easy Trick to Removing Bugs From Front of RV

We've all had the front end of our RV covered in bug guts and parts. The best way to remove them? Try dryer sheets! Here's a quick video which shows their effectiveness:

This works I have used this on the front of my Ram and Wildcat. The cheap ones work just as well as bounce.

Here's what I do with our 5th wheel. I learned this years ago trying to get bugs off my motorcycle windshield. I droop a large shipping blanket over the front. Then I hose down the blanket so it's completely soaked. Make sure that the blanket is in contact with the fiberglass. Crack a beer, have dinner and go to bed. Over night the wet blanket has softened everything up. Pull off the blanket and hose off the bugs. No rubbing at all.

I know it sounds crazy, but Dow Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Cleaner is the best stuff I've ever used.
I just mist some water on the front cap, and out of direct sun, spray the Bubbles on. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes and then I just scrub em off with a soft bristle brush on one of my extention poles. Takes em right off. If they've been on awhile do it a second time.
Dosen't hurt the fiberglass, or glass, or paint.
And, as a side benifit, it also removes black streaks!!!

I have been using this method on my cars in Florida and it just eats the love bugs right off the car. I haven't had occasion to try on my fifth wheel yet but I will before the summer is over. (Dryer Sheets)

What I need to know is how to get up there safely to clean the overcab.

Bugs off

Been using dryer sheets for awhile, works great. I always apply a new coat of wax on the cap each time too.
