cleaning the exterior

I don't want to damage the exterior of our new 16 xrb but would like to get the bugs off the front. What is the best way of doing this without damaging the travel trailer? Thanks for your suggestions!

I pray with 'awesome' cleaner and let soak. Then scrub with dish soapy water....Not sure if that will hurt anything. Hasn't yet.

Get some bug and tar cleaner at your local auto parts store. They are safe for automotive paints. Some household cleaners will strip RV paint...

Try wetting down fabric dryer sheets works nicely on bugs and does not damage the finish. There are also many commercial bug removal products.

I use a product called "Spray Power". I buy it in a gallon bottle. Use it full strength. Spray it on and watch them slide off. I use it for black streak removal, awning cleaning. I am sure it removes any wax, so I follow up with a car wash will a wax.
