I was told that Pam cooking spray will keep the bugs from sticking on the front of the RV.. Anyone try ed this or will it eat up the decals.

A good wax job once a year is what works best. Pam may work for a while, but it will wash off with normal cleaning and a hard rain will also remove it. Use Bounce dryer sheets to clean them off and apply a good wax.

You might try using Rejex (http://www.rejex.com/rejex.html) on the front cap. This makes bug removal very easy!

Best Wishes!

I'll second the Rejex & was told by rep. that it will not harm decals.

I always use McGuires Ultimate Wax on the front of my TT before every trip. It just sprays on and wipes off. Bugs then just usually wash off. In the event of a stubborn one, I use Awesome (Dollar Store) to get it off as well as any other spots.

The black streak remover from Wally World works great to remove bugs. Don't know why it does but also works great for the black streaks. "wipe on....wipe off"

I tried using PAM a few years ago and I found it actually attracted more dirt and debris and left more junk for me to clean off. I have found that if you wet the area you want to clean, then wet a bounce dryer sheet, and simply use the dryer sheet to wipe of the bugs, they come off like warm butter. After years of using this method, I've seen no affect on my decals or paint.

I have put Bounce dryer sheets in a spray bottle with just plain water. Spray on the area and wipe off. Works great. Shake the bottle before spraying.

Thanks all, will try some of the idea's. I have used wax in the past , it worked some but could be better.

I never heard of using dryer sheets for this application so that is neat. Always heard to use them to keep critters out when stored for the winter.

Bounce brand is the only one that will work.
