Hubby swiped the MH next to us in storage and rubbed their mirror on the back trim of our unit, while backing it in. Have tried soap and water, black streak remover, windex and and sponge with the rough scrubbie side. Nothing has removed it. Any other ideas? Our body paint is white and it is quite noticeable.

No damage at all to the neighbor's mirror, you can't even tell he rubbed it when moving the MH. The only spot is on our MH.

Thanks for the idea of rubbing compound, I'll give it a try.

May want to try polishing compound first. It is not as abrasive as rubbing compound. If you need rubbing compound to remove the mark, follow with polishing compound to remove any swirls caused by the rubbing compound..

DITTO!

Or some 1000-1200 Wet-or-Dry paper on a small sanding block. Use wet & gently. Follow with 2000 paper, wet.
