Just waxed my 5.0 this week and had sap to remove. Alcohol, rubbing not drinking, worked well. Of course a couple of beers kept me lubricated, it was quite hot.😂

Alcohol definitely works, but it evaporates too quickly. I used Turtle Wax brand bug & tar remover and found it worked much better, probably because it stayed liquid and didn’t evaporate.

I am wondering the best way to remove tree sap from the awning material. Since I rolled it up it is on the top and the underside. I probably have it on the fiberglass on top too but haven'y looked yet, but what about the awning material?
