How to prevent streaks on your aluminum siding?

I know you need to clean the rubber roof 2-3 times per year but what can you do if it is already slightly streaked?

About the only way to prevent streaks that know is storing the unit in doors out of the weather.

For the roof, I like to use Dawn dish soap, and a soft car wash brush.

For the side walls I like to use product called Spray Power, I use it full strength, it does a good job removing streaks and the bugs off the front cap. I spray it on and use the car wash brush.

X2 on the Dawn dish soap to clean the roof. I clean it twice a year and have no problems with any streaking on the siding.
I also use Protect All on the siding after I wash it. I Protect All it 2 to 3 times per year. which also helps the streaking problem.
Welcome to the Forum and
Happy RVing,
Jeff

Does your JayFlight have aluminum or fiberglass siding?

Thank you havnfun. Will the protectant for the siding also provide a level of protection for the decals?

Thanks oldmanaz. Everyone has been very helpful and I'm excited to be able to learn and acquire helpful tips from fellow rv'ers.
It has aluminum siding.
