Walmart sells black streak remover and I've found that it gets rid of the white streaks as well.

"La's Totally Awesome" cleaner from the dollar store for $1 a bottle, this stuff is amazing! I use it in my pressure washer foam applicator, foam it on, scrub it with a soft bristle pole brush and pressure wash rinse it off with a wide fan nozzle, Removes black and white streaks.

I mix it 1/3 cleaner to 2/3 warm water in my foam wand bottle, I can do my 28' MH with one bottle. Does leave residual streaks on the windows but that is more than likely my hard water. MH surface is smooth to the touch. I do use a home-built 3 stage filter for washing to help with water spots but, do not have my soft water to my outside spigot yet.

Interior Window Streaks

I may start a new thread, or perhaps go to General Discussion, but this thread caught my eye.

We had SW Florida site that faced due east, and with air-born grease from cooking, the sun baked the grease onto the interior glass that regular window cleaner only made worse. Kind of like the inside of an oven door. No doubt we will adjust our cooking methods, but after trying a half-dozen products, I found that Meguiar's Rubbing Compound took me back to the glass in short order on a small portion of the glass. Yes, it is micro-abrasive, but whatever the stuff might have done to the glass, it is invisible. In a post above, I'm seeing a product called Invisible Glass, and a 10x dilution of wheel acid, which sounds a little scary. Perhaps some of you know of a product for this situation. Windex, Glass Plus, vinegar, oven cleaner, CLR Goo-Gone...forget these products.

Thanks, everybody.

Yeah, that was in my arsenal of cleaners I originally tried as well.

Yep, after spending most of the weekend researching primarily on classic car forums and sites, I believe that to be the case. I do not know where the previous owners lived or kept the RV stored, or if it is something that was used to clean the roof and not rinsed off the sides quickly enough.

Anyway, my next step is to try rubbing compound and re-waxing. Fortunately I have a friend that is into that stuff so I'll get him over to look at it this week.

If that is the solution, I'll probably get a professional to do it to be sure it is done right.

I used a mild solution of CLR. Worked well and didn't seem to damage the paint.
