Has anyone found any new products for cleaning black streaks? I am looking for something that you can clean with a camper brush from the ground and then rinse off. None of the RV products seem to do what they claim to do. Also and easy application wax.

Thank you,

Lee

wax no
black streak yes

I use a product called ACF-50
you can get it at www.aircraftspruce.com
its a light petrol based formula normaly used for corrosion protection/prevnetion of alum and steel etc.
wash the rig or spot with good car soap
take it and spray it on a rag wrapped around your brush, it will soften and remove the black.
then was again with car soap to remove the left over residue. or you can apply a light coat to areas that receive lots of streaks it will prevent a lot of trouble.
works good at removing love bugs as well
plus it will leave a protective film on exposed metal last about 14 days in heavy exposure to sun and rain

Lee,

Blackstreaks----One of the best for fiberglass use I've found (and easy to use) "Scubbing Bubbles" from your grocery store. (spray or foam)

Wax----Never used it, I use 303 protectant. Wipe on, wipe off

Best,

ProtectAll has a black streak product, and I have used Wash Wax All. Link below. The degreaser stuff takes the black streaks right off.

Home Crown RV and boat cleaner is the best I've used. It really is a spray-on, wipe-off product. It is made in Kentucky. The difficult part of your question is "from the ground with a brush". That requires something added to water or sprayed on a mop with a long handle.

Your local Dollar Store should have a product called "Awesome". I have found this to work great on black streaks.

as was mentioned ( 303 ) you can purchase it at most marine stores
it is a fantastic product.
I use it on the roof of our coach (42 ft country coach ) once a year
and that was the end of streaking : it can be used on plastic rubber
vinyl or any place you see fit !! I also use it on the dash and the tires
Read the back of the bottle : and i bet you will also be a believer

I have found the best black streak remover without cutting the wax is WD-40. I have tried Protect All's Black Streak Remover, but found I had to re-wax the rig.

You can use Tile-ex, with some lite scrubbing. A product that I use is called RV Wash. The key thing is, something with a caustic & butyl base.

We use Master Kleen. It's cheap and works great.
