cleaning bugs off

In my Goldwing riding days to clean bugs off we used a 50/50 mix of water and Hydrogen Peroxide it loosen the bugs so they swiped off in most cases

Thanks for the tip..... I don't know about Peroxide on gel coat, but can't imagine it being any worse than other products or the road grime we drive through.........

I know when we had a rv park, we had a guy that cleaned big rigs. He used a piece of indoor/outdoor carpet with soap and water. I was shocked how well that worked. Very soft on paint finished rv's. And I am talking that he used that method on million dollar rigs with out worry.

Go to the auto store and purchase the product "Bug Off".

Easily getting bugs and grime and road rash off an all molded trailer starts with a really good wax job on the trailer. If nothing else, keep the nose of the trailer well waxed and don't let the bugs bake on.
