automotive brake cleaner will take rubber marks right off.Put a little on a cloth and try a small area first as some paints don,t like the stuff. We us it all the time to de rubber the race car. if you have a clear coat it should not bother it.Wd 40 also works on the lighter stuff.

Well, now I know I was very lucky. A technician at the local dealer was able to pound the step back into shape with a ball peen hammer. Working fine now. Total bill $57. He recommended "3M Finish" to get the streaks off. Heading for an auto supply store now. Thanks everyone for the tips and good wishes!

Glad no one was hurt. X2 on the WD40. That stuff is not so good at being a penetrating oil but it sure works great as a cleaner. Might do in the wax but one call always re-do that.

I used Mother's Carnauba Wax Polish and it tooks the streaks off with barely any rubbing.

It did more damage to my RV's surface than good.

Agreed, I have used mineral spirits or paint thinner for years to remove various material from cars, trucks, etc. Be aware, however, the mineral spirits will remove wax from the area where its applied, so plan to wax and polish to the affected areas.

I hate those road alligators.
Sad to hear your misfortune! Hope the above works

If nothing else your coach will have no static and smell nice! (Sorry Wayne)
