Black streaks

What do you use to clean the outside of your camper? I bought some stuff from Walmart that said it was for black marks but it did not work.

I'll assume you have the metal siding. My owners manual states the siding should be waxed at least 2X annually to prevent oxidation.

I have been diligent to wax mine at least once a year....what you will find is that a slick, water repelling finish is far less prone to streaks than an oxidizing finish.

Win-win-win with wax...wax cleans off black streaks, prolong the finish, and prevents streaks from coming back as quickly.

Good luck!

I'm a fan of scrubbing bubbles. It's a good idea to keep the outside waxed, too.

I use a product call “Spray Power” I buy it at Menards for $6.50/gal. I put a little in a spray bottle and spray it on full strength. By the time I set the bottle down you can see the marks dissolving. It also works great on the front of the HTT to remove the suicidal bugs.

The best and cheapest cleaner I have ever bought, and safer than simple green.
