I use a product called Spray Nine. I buy a gallon at local NAPA store and it last many years. I spray it on streak and wash that area with soft brush and car wash. No rubbing, no abrasive, no damage, and effortless. If you want to enjoy your trailer in lieu of scrubbing and maintaining I know you will be satisfied with this product. Was recommended to me many years ago by a navy seaman. Hope this helps.

TSP works very well also. Mix in a bucket with some detergent, work from the bottom up and rinse thoroughly.

WD-40 also strips all the wax and protectant off the finish, so if you decide to use it, wax it afterward. I use it to remove road tar and brake dust from my cars.

Clean it up and then apply 303 Protectant, next time the black streaks come, they'll wipe right off.

The best product I used so far is Simple Green, but the liquid in the spray bottle is blue, it says on the bottle it can be used for black streaks. I just spray it on my wash brush, go over streaks then spray it down with water. Streaks are gone!

I have also tried the "Totally Awesome" cleaner/degreaser from the $ store, and it does work! This weekend i started waxing/polishing my MH with Turtle Wax Ice (liquid) and it too will remove all kinds of streaks from the sides, both white and black!

I used "Awesome" on my son's TT and the streaks it left, were so bad, I had to repaint, where I washed. I also tried "McGuires Clean & wax", "Simple Green", Lysol and many other products, to no effect. The black streaks are on metal sides and many cleaners, also took the paint off, so I have had to repaint many sections of the trailer. I have pretty much painted most of the black streaks away.

Now that you have it cleaned. Go out and invest in some gutter extenders. Makes the gutters drain away more from the camper. Puts most of the heavy black streaks near the ground so your not having to scrub while up on a ladder

I used a spray product called SD-20. I purchased a trailer which was covered in streaks, couldn't get them off and tried everything short of compounding. The spray worked great except it made the spots so clean they stood out and I ended up using it on the whole trailer. Followed up with a quality wax.

WD-40 is great and it works great on bug bites also .. tried it last week and it's the best itch killer I've ever used..
