    Bugs

    Does anyone have suggestions of something to put on the front of the unit to assist in getting the bugs off after a trip? Someone told me to spray the front with pledge before a trip and they would come off much easier.

    Re: Bugs

    I don't know what the Pledge might do to the decal. What I do is stand in the back of my truck when I get parked and with a little water and my brush I get them off before they bake on. I do wax the front more often. You will probably hear of alot of things people spray on their trailers some maybe OK and some not.

    Re: Bugs

    Bounce dryer sheets with water help take them off easier. Seems the Bounce brand is the only one that others have said to work the best. I use the Bounce sheets with Rejex re-applied once a year in the spring.

    Take care,

    I have a TT and I wax the front before every trip. I use Macquires spray on wax that I buy at Walmart. I have been doing this for a year and it has not affected the decal and it sure makes it easy to get any bugs off. I did the same thing on my Edge.

    Rain X on the front cap once cleaned and waxed, it greatly reduces the elbow grease on removing bugs and other splatter!!!!!

    What is REJEX? Where do you get this? I've spent hours getting the little suckers off. If there is a good aide I'm certainly interested.

    Re: Bugs

    Go on line. After hearing about it on this forum, I researched it, found some dealers close to my area but ended up ordering on line. I just have one application on my frt cap and back end. Will apply again in early spring before I go out again. To soon for me to see how affective it is.
    Happy hunting.

    Re: Bugs

    Rejex is sort of a liquid polymer that will bond to the fiberglass and keep things from sticking to it. I bought it online. It is not cheap but it goes a long way and lasts a long time. Goes on like liquid wax.
