I waxed the lower half of the rear cap, half with Turtle Wax, and half with Protect All. Both sides looked about the same when I finished but after a few days and some rain I had black streaks where I waxed but not above. Is it normal for streaks to show up more after waxing? I'm now thinking of trying 303 Protectant, does it work better?

I do not think there is such a thing as no black streaks. What I have found is that there are waxes/polishes that are easier to get the black streaks off of than others.

Rejex works well, especially for getting the bugs off. But it is tough to apply, takes a long time so I limit it to just the front end cap and the front end of my TV. For the rest of the rig I have found that waxes that have the higher levels of carnauba, the better. Black streaks still form but they are MUCH easier to get off.

I did like you and put different kinds of waxes on each section of the rig. The section with the highest loading of carnauba was slowest to show black streaks and easiest to wash.

That's no surprise.

Black streams begin to form at the top, and they build as they move down.

Waxing doesn't erradicate black streaks, but it does make wiping them away easier. I use Protectall, and I use it later as a touch-up. The streaks come off easily, and I no longer feel I need to do complete wax jobs with multi-step products.

Cleaning your roof a couple times a year, especially if your roof is rubber instead of fiberglass, will help reduce black streaks.

I agree waxing doesn't keep black streaks from forming. It slows down the formation and makes them easier to remove once they show up.
