Front cap of rv

I was going to wax the front cap of my fiver and from the top of it to about 3ft down it got a white haze on it that is streaked. I cant get it off dont want to wax over it till I get it clean. Anybody know what will get this off. I have washed it with good soap and it wont come off that way.

May try a good cleaner/ wax. Some of them say you don't even have to wash the trailer first.
Worth a try.

I have used 'mothers' detail spray when wax gets stubborn .I t re-softens wax and gives you a second chance to buff it out.

A polishing compound [3M] will make it effortless. Not a rubbing compound. The polishing compound is white and it will make your waxing real easy when done.

Well day two of trying to get this cap clean. Its only a year old and always covered. Except when at dealership being worked on and a weekend a month camping. It almost looks like oxidation, cap is grey streaks are white. Tried a clay bar this afternoon and it didnt help. Going to dealership tomorrow to see what they say if they dont have anything to fix it ill pull it there and keystone can pay to get it right.

Took it to dealership saturday. Said keystone wasnt painting them anymore but had a written procedure to go by to fix it and paint and body guy would work on it. Calling keystone myself because if this just returns after a few weeks will they fix it then it will be out of warranty by then.

Just my opinion, dealing with Keystone is a waste of time. Customer satisfaction is not high on there list.

Call Keystone I had a warranty issue and when I delt with Keystone directly the issue was resolved. This was after 13 months of dealing with the dealer

Ok so keystone has stepped up and they will paint the front cap or our fifth wheel. Glad that happened. When keystone told me it was the sun doing it and it was in the owners manual to wax it every six months. I ask why a new cougar on the lot that had only been at the dealer for a month was doing the same and if waxing it was to keep it from fading why wasnt it done at factory. His response was it took the sun six months to do the damage. Just glad my dealer went to bat for me and keystone done the right thing.
