Streaks on window frames and MH

I purchased a new to me 2017 Tiffin Open Road 36LA. The dealer who I purchased it from must not have rinsed the coach very well because it has subtle streaks all over. I can use wash and wax to clean coach probably but window frames seem difficult to get streaks removed, any cleaning suggestions? Thanks

Try Awesome cleaner. It's really amazing how well it cleans. You can buy it at Dollar Tree! I would use it full-strength on the window frames.

I've never used what Joe had recommended. But I use 303 on a cloth to keep the metal looking new. I'm not sure if it would clean off the streaks or not.

The streaking could be coming from your roof. May need to address that issue as well.

I did try 303 on one frame and it didnít do much to improve the situation. Thanks

Stains probably got sucked into dry thirsty coating, 303 just sealed it over but would have prevented it. WD40 can clean a lot of weird stuff pretty gentle on paint.. If not go detergent water based maybe add some vinegar . After trying every solvent and alcohol. After many years, I found hand cleaner to be best thing to remove cooked on smoke from inside of explosion proof HID lenses from cooked ballast varnish.
I guess try some different stuff lol.

Use vinegar to remove stains on glass. Rub a lot.

Crown boat and RV cleaner works great for stubborn streaks on my RV's, I had a jug leftover from by boating days where it also worked great to remove water line black streaks and stains. Something else that's nice, it's made in the USA = Kentucky.
