    Have been using car wash but it not removing dead bugs from the front easily.
    Is there a magic wash out there that will help get rid of dead bugs splattered over the front of motorhome.
    Do have jet wash but when on full blast wont do paintwork any good.
    Mrs does inside no jokes!

    Soak an old towel or two in plain water and lay over the offending areas. Leave for an hour or so, and when you remove the towels, a light rub with a damp cloth will get them off in a jiffy.

    all the pro hand carwashes and commercial fleet operators use traffic film remover. spray on, leave 5 minutes to work and the crud just washes straight off with a hose or jet lance. about £10 a gallon

    I use Autoglym All Purpose Cleaner. It's a bit like TFR, I suppose.

    You buy it on a concentrated 1 gallon container and dilute to suit. I decant into a spray bottle.

    Does all sorts of things on your MH from dirty wheels, engine, carpets, toilet depending on the concentration and how filthy things are.

    Great on dead bugs, too. Spray on. Wipe off.

    Motorhome cleaning

    Our motorhome was looking a bit grubby with all the flies etc, I used Auto Glym caravan cleaner, then bit the bullet and spent the whole day waxing it with Auto Glym resin polish as well, I did use an 1800rpm polishing machine with lambswool pad which made it a bit easier, result a gleaming van (for a while) which hopfully the bugs wont stick to so hard:Smile:
