CLR will remove oxidation, hard water spots, and road film. The downside is, CLR must also be removed or it leaves a smeared film somewhat like the road oil film. After cleaning the CLR off, a thorough application of Rain-X leaves the glass sparkling like it is new. Wipe off the wiper blades to remove accumulated road oil so it will not smear the glass again.
Hope it works for you as well as it did for me.

I'm having a hard time figuring out what I'm looking at with that picture. If it wasn't for the fact you say you've scraped some off, I was going to suggest the windshield was starting to delaminate? Pretty common on older coaches. Almost always around the outside of the glass, appears kinda foggy, and as it's between the layers of the glass, it's not going to scrape off. You need to replace the windshield to get rid of it.

I use a paste of cerium oxide and vinegar to remove water spots on glass. You can get cerium oxide a from rock & mineral shops or ebay, that's where I buy it. Auto parts houses sell a product called glass stripper which also works well, and yes, 0000 steel wool will take mineral stains off glass, as will a razor blade.

Go to a local auto parts store that sells paint supplies and buy a clay brick. It will remove foriegn materials from the glass without scratching it. We used it in the body shop to remove paint over spray.

First of all, a BIG thank you to all those who responded. I am overwhelmed by your collective knowledge and willingness to help others in this community. I really appreciate it.

What I have tried so far was the BKF paste solution. I made a paste out of BKF and water, applied it and let is sit for 15min. I then used a scotch brite scratch free sponge pad to scrub the area. A little bit of water and it was gone. Much easier than scraping it off.

ChasA gets the prize for offering a solution that has been proven to work...not to say that any of the other excellent suggestions would not have worked. It just turned out I had the BKF on hand which is why I tried that first. I owe ya one!

Safe travels all.

Yep, really works great. I have done it and the windshield looks like new.
