Dead bugs on the front of your RV might just seem like a nuisance.
However, bugs exact a cruel revenge for their untimely deaths – they produce enzymes as they decompose that damage your paint. So it’s vital to clear the carnage if you want to maintain your RV.
Here are some tips to help you clean up your RV after a drive through a bug storm:
- Make sure that you are waxing the front of your rig regularly. All of these tips work best on a well-maintained unit. Consider adding a wax after you clean the bugs from a particularly troublesome area.
- Clean the bugs off as soon as you can. This isn’t the time to let the bug families grieve.
- Strangely enough, a Bounce Dryer Sheet and a little water can work wonders to remove dead bugs. So, you can keep your RV clean and have wonderfully fresh laundry at the same time!
- We love Bug’s Off Bug Cleaner (which we are happy to supply you with). This cleaner virtually dissolves bugs, and comes in a convenient spray bottle. We suggest using a microfiber cloth to avoid any scratches.
- If the bugs are being particularly stubborn about leaving their resting place, soak the affected area in hot water for 15-30 minutes. The bugs should come off easily at that point.
Take care of your RV and remove dead bugs as they come, and you will enjoy a nice paint finish for much longer.
