Get one of the glass "polish" products, or simply an automotive type polish (aka "wax"). Or look for an "industrial" glass cleaner at an auto parts store, Grainger Supply, or Depot or Lowes.

You could try black streak remover. If that don't work 4000 steel wool will.

Once you do get it cleaned off the windshield I have found a good roof cleaning and sealer designed for your type of roof will prevent it. Go to your local RV shopping center for approprate products.

Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser. Located in stores next to Comet, ect. type cleaners.
Non abrasive. Wet down the windshield, sprinkle it on, and rub it in with a sponge. Rinse it off and your streaks will be gone.

Crown RV & boat hull cleaner-black streak remover.
I found this product at the local Menards big-box store. Best product I've ever used, and I have a shelf full of stuff I was told would work but didn't.
It's made in KY.
After you have your window clean and clear, apply RainX per instructions, it will further clean/polish the window and greatly reduce anything sticking while making rain/water bead-up and run off.
