I've had good luck with any black streak remover.

I carry a bottle of Meguiar's Quik Detailer in the truck and have some at the house. That is what I use for black streaks and it shines the finish as you clean.

I need to try the quik detailer. My FIL keeps telling me I should try it.



Keith-do you have to wash it first or does the detailer "wash and wax" at the same time?



If my cap has a good wax job on it and the streaks are minimal I can usually just wash them off with Camco RV Wash and Wax (or whatever its name is).

Lonnie,I usually just spray it on and let it sit a minute then just rub it off with a clean towel. Don't do it if the sun is hitting it but you shouldn't use the Black Streak removers in the sun either. I don't like using Black Streak removers because they smell like a beach and water mixture and I don't want that on the trailer finish.



Once we get setup at a park I use the detailer on the truck and trailer wheels to clean off the brake dust and give them a nice shine. The detailer will also remove bugs from the front cap.

We use Awesome Orange too. I generally dilute it 50/50 with water and it works great.

Stubborn stains can be removed with MR. Clean Magic Erasers. Helped a ton for the fiberglass.
