You got lucky that they were not oxidized. I bought a rig once with black streaks, thought this will be an easy job with elbow grease and cleaners, but wrong answer! They never did come off.

StarBrite black streak remover for boats works pretty good on the tough ones. When we used it on the boat it seemed to take the wax off too so you might want to have some ready.

Cleaning your roof will help keep the streaks at bay for a while also.

Man these toys are a lot of work.

Gutters solved my black streak problem. Never get them on the newer TT with the gutters and spout to direct the stream away from TT sides.

And yes, LOL, these toys ARE a lot of work. But it's work i kinda enjoy :-P

The streaks are dirt, polution and crud that has collected on the roof and then gets flushed down the sides with either rain or dew. G7utter down spouts do help to some degree. But, i still have some streaks dow the front and off the back. Waiting for better weather then I'll get out the bucket, house and rags.

I use a citrus based solvent that we can get at the doller store, I call it Agent Orange. Works real good on grime. Should has seen what it did the the belly of the airplane. WOW!

Citrus Cleaners

Pricejh Don't use citrus based cleaners on your roof. It can cause damage to the roof membrane. I have a friend at our park that found out the hard way.

Did not know that. I'll be sure to keep it off the roof. But, it is great on the fiberglass.

Manufacturer recommendations.....

DICOR Roof Info

Roof Maintenance

quote: Petroleum Distillates... Not for EPDM

Petroleum distillates are incompatible with and should never be used on a number of plastics including vinyl and rubbers, particularly EPDM. Engineering specifications rate EPDM's solvent and oil resistance as "POOR". Dicor's Care and Maintenance instructions warn:

"CAUTION: DO NOT use cleaners or conditioners containing petroleum solvents, harsh abrasives or citric based cleaners. You may cause irreparable damage to your roof."

This is talking about the rubber roof, not fiberglass, when it is warning about damage from petroleum solvents, abrasives or citric based cleaners. If you have a fiberglass roof, it has different rules.....

Hope this helps!

You found the best product that you could. I had an issue with my white rain gutters at home tried everything but a little spray of the Awesome and had to use a Mr. Clean bleach sponge and off it came. Glad just the Awesome worked for you. Hard to believe it's only a buck.
