In the past I have used Protectall with great success on an aluminum clad travel trailer and a fiberglass motor home to remove black streaks. They came off quite easily.

Thanks for sharing this product with us Max.
Soda Ash is another name for lye.

Simple Green is another awesome degreaser that is safe on all parts. I use it on wheels, wheel wells, black streaks etc. I will try some clorox green, looks great in its proper place. I wonder if it eats the wax from the surface? will have to test this! great find

I'm new to this whole motorhome thing and really glad to get these tips. Thanks a bunch for them.
I get lots of white streaks down the windshield of our Southwind whenever it rains or a lot of dew running off. Apparently, this is coming from the roof material but on looking at the roof all seems to be ok. Any ideas here??

Thanks a bunch
Jim in Mo.

For tough stains or road tar how about that WD-40 ?

That stuff packs a real punch for taking off different grimes. It is technically a solvent, an oil eater, although a lot of people use it soley as a lubricant. I use it on a variety of my vehicles for stubborn grimes.

I wouldn't use it on precision machinery if it is a long-term lubricant that you are really after.

Dale for us uninformed what is Wink

I like Stoner Invisible Glass (WalMart) on the windows, and interior mirrors.
On the windshield spay on, let sit and then rinse,or squeegee, bugs come right off.

OBTW - After a few applications of Plexus to my Diamond Shield I can get the bugs off with just cool water and a micro fiber cloth.
Is Diamond Shield a clear bra type material? I have a 3M clear bra on my Mazda MX 5/ Miata. The bug stains are very hard to remove. Should I try Plexus on it?

Bought a 32oz bottle of Green Works at Menard's today, $2.82. Can't wait to try it out on the 'bago. I'm for anything that easily removes black streaks. Will report back.

Wash the roof with Spic N Span and an auto wash brush on a long handle- to save your back. It will remove most of the oxidized EPDM material (assuming that is your roof material), and the white streaks will be greatly reduced if not gone; at least until you need to wash the roof again in 6 months.
