Cleaning roof/sides of coach

Just got coach out of winter storage. It needs roof cleaned and sides done up. Notice decals on kitchen slide are fading. Any products out there you use to help brighten up decaling or clean roof with. It had paint protectant applied when new in 2007. Any advice appreciated.

I have had some success using a product called" Protect All" oxidation remover and color restorer. It takes a bit of the fade out of the decal and evens out the color the best on the fiberglass side walls and plastic parts to bring out the shine.

I tried that product but it seemed to fade on the decals within hours. I'm more worried with the roof cleaning as I get white strikes down the sides from the roof. Coach is generally in pristine shape. My dilemma is how to the roof.

Mr Clean Magic Erasers worked great for me. It cut right thru the grime on the fiberglass roof, much better than any of the cleaners it tried.

Try this, a product called Awesome, you get it at the dollar store $1.00 per bottle. Wet your roof spray some awesome on it wash it rinse an presto cleans. Especially good on black streaks!

I have used Grease Lightning spray cleaner on the sides which does a very good job of taking off the winter goo. Hose down the area you are going to clean, then spray on the cleaner and let sit for about 30 seconds then then I scrub with an extended handle automotive brush. Then spray off and wash over with warm water mix with some Dawn detergent, does a very good job of bringing back both the color and shine.When finished with washing I then go back over the coach with Turtle spray-on detailing Blue Ice wax.
