Good luck
Yeah, your wheels are not coated. I loved that I could make the rims on my Diplomat look like chrome, it really made the coach stand out. A touch up on them one or twice a year was quick and easy.

When I got my 2014 and 2019 Dutch Stars, with tag axle, I liked the idea that I never had to polish wheels again, especially eight of them, but the coated wheels look nice, but never as shiny as the uncoated rims.

SUCCESS!! I used undiluted vinegar on the crusty oval where the hard sprinkler water sat in the bottom of the wheel. Then I used detailers clay to remove the hard water spots on the wheel rim. It worked great!!

You know.....sprinklers hitting the RV is a pet peeve for many people, including me. It generates a lot of complaints. A lot of these places have really hard water and it's a mess to clean up, as you've found.

There is a beautiful campground/Casino and huge truck stop, across the street, on I-5 in the middle of Oregon, called Seven Feathers. It's very popular. When it first opened, the sprinklers were spraying coaches in almost every site. There was a huge uproar about it, with negative internet complaints. They quickly addressed all of the sprinkler issues.
