Bugs

What is the best wax or what else to use on the front cap top make the bugs come off easy.

Pam anti-stick cooking spray or some competitor brand B4U hit the road.

I've read elsewhere that Pam can create a sticky mess that can be hard to get off, especially in hot climates. A lot of people on other forums have been claiming good luck with an acrylic floor finish from Lowe's called Red Max Pro #3 instead of using wax.

Thumbs down Watch the sprays

I made the mistake of using a petrolium based spray on my TT years ago, it softened up the caulking and made a mess. Wish I had never done it.
I've read that the fabric softener cloth soaked in water and then used on the bugs will wash them off. Try Bounty or really any of them and see what
happens, can't hurt anything. I use Simple Green, diluted and if I let it soak and then slowly clean them off it works.
Doesn't matter what you use the whole task is a pain.

The car dealer told us to use those baby wipe cloths when cleaning bugs off the front of the hood. Maybe that would work for TT as well?

My other concern is that it would get blown onto the roof going down the road. My understanding is the rubber roofs and petroleum products dont mix.
