Black Streaks

Without having to search a ton of threads; my 5'er has the fiberglass shell/body and I get the black streaks a couple times a year. What does everyone use that will get these streaks off without having to break my elbows from buffing so hard ???

Thanks !!

I use the same Black streak remover. I wet the trailer down with water, spray the Black Streak remover directly on the trailer and use a brush to wash/scrub/rinse the trailer.
Works just fine with very little effort. I would suggest that you wax the area if you use my method. The Black streak remover also removes the wax.

I have a thread on here somewhere to show the difference. I will see if I can find it post for you.

I found the thread that I posted some pictures of the front of our JayFlight before and after.

Thanks to all who posted !! Nice looking rig Daryl and Sandy !! I ended up finding an old bottle of 'Krud Kutter' that was left behind in a truck camper my wife and I had purchased about 6 years ago. I noticed Walmart also had this on their shelf. I tried a little bit on a spot and it wiped right off. I washed afterward..

Had our first trip of the season over Memorial Day on the shores of Lake Ontario. It was 88 degrees both days we were at the beach !!!!!!!! Just glad I had plenty of "refreshments" !!!!!

Enjoy the Summer everyone !!!!!!!

Based on the results I've seen here, I may have to get some of the Camco cleaner. 409 has been my "weapon of choice" in the past, but I think I'll at least try the other.

Dumb question: WHAT is causing the black streaks? If it is some type of glue or sealant, why can't the manufacturers use a WHITE sealant so it doesn't show up so much on our trailers? Those streaks are really a pain to have to clean all the time.

I personally haven't found anything better than 4U for cleaning my entire camper. Cost around $30 a gallon (concentrate) and is safe and very effective on everything from melting away black streaks to making a chaulky roof look like new. I usually mix about 2 cups to a 5 gallon bucket and carry a spray bottle mixed a little heavier for any stubborn stain I run across. I'm not going to talk bad about any product but for me it's the best I've found.

I have found Spic & Span to be the easiest and the best. My roof and MaxAir covers look like new. Then I wash again with Turtle Wax car wash/wax. The Spic & Span also is great getting rig of all the squashed insects on the front of the fiberglass cab over on my Class C. The sides and windows clean up real nice.
