Gentlemen, please, the topic here is bug cleaning strategy.
I know that beer is one of the better choices when in Mexico (though Negra Modelo is my preference), but you could drink something with a little more body when in the US or Canada, you know.

While you are cleaning bugs off your trailer, of course.

Sadly Jim .... I understand that Budwiser / Bush has bought Negro Modelo ..... the body will certainly be reduced in the future. Actually Dos Equis ... the parent company.

I always put a coat of wax /polish on the front of my trailer before heading out on the road.
The wax / polish make bug removal much easier. Applying the wax takes less time and effort
than scraping off bugs. IMHO

Hi: All... Never thought of using beer to remove bugs from the 5.0TA. Is it like polishing metal with Coke?
Sounds like AB inBev. has been buying up breweries again. Alf
