White marks on side of RV where hot water tank drains

Hi All - I have tried to remove the white marks left by drain water from the hot water tank but no luck. I even tried vinegar, still no luck. Any ideas?

Could it be lime deposits...

Most likely the white streaks are simply hard water scale deposits. Use a mild acid (test first in an inconspicuous location to make sure it won't damage painted or decayed surfaces.

Check out LimeAway. Read the label before you buy.

CLR works as well. Maybe it's only in Canada. Can be bought at home hardware centers

Could be lime. I would've thought the vinegar would have removed it. Thanks.
