LAs Totally Awesome cleaner

A question for those of you that use or have used this product. Just wondering if when you use this if you dilute the cleaner or just spray it on right out of the bottle.

The toy hauler is starting to develop black streaks on it and I have read quite a few post that this stuff works great. I went out and bought some thinking I would give it a try. Before using it on the trailer I tried spraying it on my Coleman camp stove. For what ever reason the towel I used turned green after wiping it off. If this stuff takes the paint off when applied straight out of the bottle, I am rather worried about using it on my trailer.

I don't want to turn this into a what is better discussion as far as type or brand of cleaner, would like to know how those of you that do use it prepare the product, ie straight out of the bottle or diluted?

Thanks in advance for all of your help.

I just spray it directly from the bottle without any dilution. I haven't noticed any damage to the finish or decals, but it will remove any wax you have applied.

I buy the 1/2 gallon size, dilute 1 to 4 in a garden pump sprayer. Use it as a pretreatment on the coach. Gets everything off roof streaks to road grim to last year's wax. Smells like 409 cleaner but lower cost.

On the label there is a dilution rate depending on what your are using it for.

I have used on certain areas inside the trailer, diluted 4-1 for black streaks outside. Cleans the wheels and tires well. It does remove any polish or wax. I think it actually works better diluted.

I would not use it on the rubber roof, its citrus based.

I just mixed a spray bottle up today at a 10:1 ratio to clean my solar panels. Worked great.
