Need ideas on best stuff to get bugs off the fiberglass forehead of my trailer.  Using good old soap and water at present.  Any ideas on a better way (or cleaning solution?).  Thanks

Plenty of water and a nylon scrub pad is my solution.  I haven't found any one detergent to be more effective on them than another and no detergent at all (plain water) seems to work about as well..    Most any fiberglass cleaner/polish (e.g. Dri-wash N Gaurd) will take them off, if you want to go that route.

I started using fabric softener sheets (like Bounce) this year and they work great. Wet them down, wipe and rinse . They work better than anything else I have tried so far.

For me the real answer has been getiing a good silicone base down before getting the bugs so that they come off easily. I use Dri Wash n Guard and Protect All and find thatt the  buge wipe off.

Turtle Wax Bug and Tar Remover and a soft rag.  DO NOT USE detergent and scrubbers on fiberglass.  If they don't come off easy, you're using the wrong stuff.
