Removing Surface Grunge

We have unseasonably warm weather today, so I got the electric power washer out and got rid of some of the nasty grunge on the new coach. It looks so much better. I think the gas power washer would have done a better job, but it would have been a hassle getting it out of its winter storage spot.
I figure I'll have to hit the entire exterior next Spring with the polisher and rubbing compound, followed by Glare polish. But, are there any products that do a good job of removing the remaining stains without hoisting the polisher for hours on end?

"Mold Armor E-Z House Wash" spray on wait 10 minutes and wash off I used my pressure washer. Blk mold and mildew stains came right off. NO SCRUBING I was really impressed how well it worked. My rig is fiberglass and did no harm, It was really black from sitting under a maple tree for a few years.
Then came the work with the buffer to get the oxidation off I got this stuff @ HD. Put on the end of a garden hose.
I didn't take a before but have after pics.

Thanks for the info on Mold Armor. I picked some up today, will try it later this week and see if it'll remove the remaining grunge.

I thought about this post while washing the MH in the Driveway today yep in the driveway, some parts of MN was up too 51 and we were close. I had a surprise and got to take the MH on a short 560 mile drive to pick up a new addition to the MH cab area. All wet and sandy/salty roads unfortunately but she is all clean and ready to go.
Just wondering if you got to use that product and if so how did it work for you?
Thanks , Tim

I haven't tried it yet. Was hoping to try a small section yesterday, but ended up having to replace the starting battery. I was hoping it would be OK until next summer, but after getting the VIN verification done, it would only crank ~3sec before dying. Luckily the house battery lent enough power to start it and get it home. We're going to have cold weather this week (just started snowing) but maybe next weekend it'll be warm enough to try it.

Sorry to hear that.
I'm having trouble with the battery that starts the gennie. This is the second battery in the last 2 years? They said that they will only exchange once. So I'm going shopping.
Thanks, Tim

All I can say is the Mold Armor is ... the shnizzle.

I did a small section today; unfortunately it's only about 40* here. I did from the wide brown stripe down.

I'm glad. I really liked it too when I did mine...Easy
What are you going to do for the stripes? I used a 3m reflector tape and it comes in colors, has stuck going on 2 years and so far so good. Boy they sure shine when hit by Headlights

I haven't given any thought to the stripes yet. If I do anything with them it will be later down the line. Gotta get all the functional and safety items on the punch list completed first.
