I haven't given much thought about washing. I have noticed the black streaks already happening. Adding rain spouts should help with that? I like the idea of waxing the nose to combat bug guts. Wax the whole thing? Not sure about that.

I can't say whether the gutters help a lot since this the only TT I've ever owned, but I can say that I have gutters, AND I have some black streaking. I wouldn't call it "bad", but I can see it and I don't care for it much. I wash (and inspect) my roof 2x per year and my trailer is very rarely under trees. It's stored in an open storage lot, and only sees any cover if we're lucky enough to have a tree shaded site for the weekend.

The Meguiars Cleaner Wax works very well. Not only does is clean the TT, but gives you a good coat of wax at the same time. Thanks again to Tunce for recommending it to me

We have gel coat on our White Hawk and, although we've used it only one season, I have washed it several times with Camco RV wash, and have waxed it with Meguiar's cleaner wax, using an orbital buffer. I use a small step ladder and can reach everything but the very top of the front. In between 2 wax jobs last season, I touched it up with Meguiar's Quick Detailer spray. And I cleaned the roof with Spic n Span before last winter. Fortunately, I actually enjoy cleaning the TT and TV, so it's not really a chore.
Cheers,
Greg
