I've never had good luck cleaning bugs off with a squeegee. I pull out my six ft. ladder and a can of Spray Way foam window cleaner. I use either a cotton towel or paper towels. That stuff works the best of any product I've every tried. It seems to melt the bugs and they wipe off easy.
In fact, I spray the whole front of the coach and clean it the same way. Very easy.

Congratulations on your new MH! We pulled the trigger in January 2011 and bought our new Bounder Classic. We love it as opposed to the TT we had. We will be heading out tomorrow for Lake Pines Campground in Midland, GA for a couple of weeks then travel through your neck of the woods in NC on our to Virginia and D.C. for the Cherry Blossom Festival. Enjoy your new rig and safe travels to you. God Bless!

Where are you in NC? I'm in Apex between Cary and Garner...
Duane, we're kind of on the other side of NC, just west of Charlotte.
Question to any/all Georgetown owners or anyone else that has a huge rear storage area in the back of their MH: How do you utilize all that space back there?! Storage area back there is aprx. 54" wide by about 26" high in the center. Seems only way to utilize all that space well, is going to be to install a large plywood shelf about 14" high, to 'split' it into two levels. Otherwise, we'd be stacking lots of things on top of each other, something I *hate* doing. Has anyone done anything similar to that, or found other ways to fully utilize tall storage spaces?
Guess I need to start doing some searching, for storage ideas/suggestions. We have a lot of stuff (grill, blue tote, chairs, tiki torches, outdoor rug, fishing gear, several plastic tote containers full of odds and ends, etc) that needs to find new homes in the MH.
I have had no problem finding use for that storage compartment. In mine, the center portion is higher, while the outside areas are smaller and deeper. I use one of the outside areas for the grill, tool box, satellite dish and tripod, extra water containers, fluid bottles, various containers and cables. The other side I use for hoses, extension cords and other items I need quickly. The center I use for items that stack well, such as chairs, folding tables, ex-pens and folding stepstool. I can even throw my bicycle on there if I need it. The patio mat sits nicely on top of the tool box and other items on one side of the area, protecting them and also acting as an extra cushion for the LNB of the satellite dish, which sits nicely in the corner wrapped in a mattress pad.

OK, here's some pictures I took with the phone when we got it home. Quality isn't that great, but here goes (Hope I shrunk these enough to comply with forum rules):
Today, I spent nearly all day building shelves in the back storage area, and loading all our stuff in. Really love all the outside storage it has, but it fills up fast, between the grill, blue tote tank, chairs, rug, folding table, clothes rack, tiki torches, fishing gear, tools, hoses.....and on and on.
