    Ive tried the blue and the green jug from peak. Neither does the job. Anyone have any success with using a different product. Or making your own homemade solution with vinager/water ? Thanks!

    lovesthedrive Is here to help

    Next time you fill it? Put a teaspoon (about a squirt) of dishwashing soap in. It will help cut down the surface tension and help remove the bug splatter. Personally I use dawn, yet any liquid dish soap will work.
    Guitar Hero Thanks this.

    fill tank with water, add dish soap

    fill tank with water, add any laundry detergent (liquid of course)

    buy washer fluid....buy soft scrub pads, climb on top of tire(s), scrub glass.

    no matter what you use, or buy, unless you can remove the dead bugs in seconds, they are gonna dry up.

    company truck?

    buy ordinary washer fluid.

    Dawn dish soap is good for everything. I have even washed my entire truck with it. Im sure it could remove all the grease from ur 5th wheel if u wanted to.

    when i was able to sneak into the customers water spigot, using a splined socket, (as they took away the spigot handle), i also used dawn soap..it IS a very good degreaser.

    then this one time, i got no water out of the spigot...

    the customer shut off the water from inside the building......!!

    believe it or not, most times, i washed my truck when i got in saturday mornings at like 4 AM, and yes, washed it if it rained, so as not to show water on the ground....musta been some "suds" someone saw, and i did not use a whole lotta soap..!!
    D.Tibbitt and lovesthedrive Thank this.

    Dawn will sure strip the wax from your paint however.

    Buy the cheap stuff and put some simple green in it. It works on the calcium chloride up north very well.

    Plus fill a weed sprayer with simple green 50/50 with water. Before it rains heavy spray down truck and trailer. Not a 100.00 truck wash, but it sure helps.
