Yeah I had hopes of finding something I could just spray on and then hit it with a water hose..

I'm vertically challenged so getting all the way up to the top sucks lol

Well the last time I washed my trailer I got a long handled car wash brush from walmart that had a tank on it for whatever you wanted to put in it wash wise. It has a valve that you can turn on and of so when you want to rinse you just turn the valve to off position. I used a heavy duty all purpose cleaner and it worked great and I never had to touch a ladder.

Totally Awesome takes no time at all. DW does the low side, I do the high. Team effort, minimal scrubbing. Works well.

Same here. It does take the wax off too!

I use the hand cleaner you can buy at auto parts stores. I think it is called "Goop". You have to use the product without grit in it though; It is just a tan to whitish colored cream. I had the idea after thinking about what I was trying to remove which is a degradation by product of rubber aka petroleum product. I have an aluminum sided trailer so I don't know if it will work on fiberglass rv or not. A little rubbing with a clean cloth and whala it's off. It even leaves a protective film and gloss to the aluminum after wiping off. I used this stuff to remove all of the oil/dirt on my recently aquired 1947 Singer 201-2 sewing machine. The Singer looks beautiful once again.

Totally Awesome $1 at the dollar store is great but as stated it strips off everything... you will have even more work by having to re-wax the entire TT.. don't forget DO NOT use it in the sun or when hot it will streak.. on my boat if I use it on the vinyl I have to use liberal amounts of 303 to get the vinyl supple again...


PO gave me some soap that removed the black streaks Harvey professional cleaner and black streak... I haven't used it but if I do I would wax as I am sure it will strip off wax...


if you keep it waxed you should not need any heavy duty cleaners... even a good liquid wax will keep it easy to clean.. I had to buff seal and wax my whole trailer to remove the oxidation now it looks like a brand new TT...

I mixed up some Lestoil and rubbed it on then cleaned off with a wet rag, and finally rinse. This seemed to make quick work of most of the black stains. Did have to work a little harder on some of the more stubborn ones, but really this helped tremendously and the camper went from looking its age (it's a 2004) to having some much needed sparkle.

Gentle application of a cleaner wax to remove and then I keep my unit saturated in 303 Aerospace Protectant. With the 303 saturation, the streaks wash off with car wash soap.
