RV Cleaning Suggestions

What does everyone use to clean the outside of their RV?

We drove out yesterday to check on the our RV at the Service Center. We noticed water stains on the windows and the walls of the RV and also the oxidation. All of this is on the outside of the coach.

In the past, I purchased a few hundred dollars worth of cleaners for RV's but none help on our older Pace Arrow.

Does anyone know if Vinegar will do the trick? Any suggestions? What has worked best for the water stain and oxidation removal on RVs?

Thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

White vinegar on a rag will scrub off hard water spots pretty good. For stains and oxidation the best remedy is rubbing compound and a good ol fashion buffing. Preferably a power buffer when you are doing something as big as a RV. For bad hard water spots on glass I have used white vinegar on ultra fine steel wool and scrub until gone.

LA's Totally Awesome Cleaner gets the water spots off. You can grab it at the Dollar Tree. Careful with it though, you need to cut it with water in some cases, its powerful stuff. Be sure to test it on a small area first.

I have used wax, but the glass was a problem. I'll try Dollar tree for their cleaner.
