Wash the over cab bull nose on my Seneca

Okay my wife and I took an eight thousand mile trip to Funny River Alaska and back to Mesa this summer and I have washed and scrubbed and polished the outside of the thing to the best of my ability. The problem is bees, dragon flies, assorted mayflies, caddis flies, and other bugs DO NOT come off with out a substantial bit of elbow grease. Plus it is, for me at least nearly impossible to reach the middle of the bull nose hanging over the center of the windshield.

So does anyone have a way to clean this part of the coach without pressure washing of paying someone else to do the work?

We put a plank between two A-frame ladders and drive the nose of the Seneca under the plank.

Like this one: https://louisvilleladder.com/ladders...id=LP-2921-16A


for short on the road cleanups, we have a soft bristle brush on a telescoping threaded pole...

Mix Simple Green, Blue dawn soap, and water in a 25:25:50 solution in a hand sprayer. Moisten cab with pressure washer, in morning dew, out of sunlight, spray with solution. Enjoy a refreshment. Then hit with pressure washer. gets rid of all except bloody mosquitos.

Wet dryer softener sheets work on the bugs.

I started using Bugs-N-All on the stubborn stuff. I usually spray it on in the early morning when there is dew still on the cap and they easily come right off using a pole and soft wash pad.

3x on the "hillbilly staging". I tie mine off so it doesn't move around.

I get my wife to do it.

I'm not allowed on ladders since a serious shoulder injury about 10 years ago.

I lengthened a set of Baker Scafffolding. Works great and sets up fast.

Bugs-N-All is fantastic at removing bug debris. But the "good" comes with some "bad"...it removes wax.

Back when I rode motorcycles I would use Pledge furniture polish. It worked great, even on Lovebugs that eat paint. I would douse the fairings on the bike and let it soak for a few minutes and wipe them off with a microfiber cloth. A good wax job prior to a long trip, especially on that surface that is hard to reach would be worth it just to make cleaning afterwards easier.

My friend just bought one of these and was able to access his entire 40' Toy Hauler and cap.

Bugs? WD40. Spray, relax a minute. Wipe off.
