I'd change it, but it's better that way.
And, here are three more, including the minor hail storm.

Yes, I know it's a typo, but could not resist.



Good for you, Laura.

Finally got home after almost 4 weeks on the road. Had a great time. Picked up our trailer on May26th. Met lots of people at the rally in Osoyoos. Did some camping in the Rockies, and visited family in Calgary and Edmonton. Love how the trailer tows! Here's a couple of pics of what the trailer looked like after hitting lots of bugs in Saskatchewan and North Dakota.

Plastic scrubby and Awesome Cleaner. Awesome will strip the wax so don't get carried away.

I've also recently read that hydrogen peroxide works well on bug guts.

Try Bug Melt. It dissolves the proteins in the bugs and turns them into a mush, which can be easily washed off. No scrubbing that can scratch the surface, and it doesn't strip wax. I've used it on the front of cars and trucks with great results.

It works Donna. When we got home from Canada I went to the garage to grab the bottle only to find I had run out of it. Can't find it around here in too many stores so I just improvised with Car Wash and a Magic Eraser. Bug Melt is much easier.

Too late now but if you had put 303 Aerospace on before leaving, including wheel wells, you would have had a much easier time of it getting all of that off.
