Elbow grease? Not when you use totally awesome.

Well maybe just a little elbow grease... Only the amount it takes to go over it with a car wash brush a couple of times.

I just cleaned the streaks tonight... Took maybe 5 minutes a side.

LA's Totally Awesome cleaner is the best thing I've used... And it's only a buck!

I use "Spray Power" by Crown. I purchase it at Menards. Use it full strengrh, do not dilute. Spray it on and the black streaks slides off, also works great to remove bugs from the front cap. No scrubbing required.

Crown, makes a black streak version, but I only use the standard stuff.

Good luck.

X2 here. I had a similar issue with soot on the side above the hot water tank. Tried everything I could then, someone on this site recommended Totally Awesome cleaner, went to dollar store and picked up a 32 oz bottle for $1. Spray on the soot and it wiped right off. Black streaks come right off as well as mildew. When I wash my TT, I pour 1/2 a bottle into a bucket with cold water and use a soft auto brush. Black streaks come right off without scrubbing. I now use it on most everything. Thanks to the person that recommended it!

I used it before it got popular actually. We used it at work to take bin numbers off metal (written with a Sharpie) and it worked incredibly good. Then decided to try it on the pop-up we had and it blew me away. Hard, tough black stains around the trim that I worked on for hours came off in minutes with that stuff. Highly recommend!

I assume you are talking about streaks on the sides of your camper. I used multiple Magic Erasers, water and elbow grease and my tired old 1990 Jay Series Deluxe looks 100% better!

You need a degreaser. Spray it on with the surface dry and wipe it then hose it off. We have the same black streak issues on boats and degreaser is the only thing that really works.

I use Super Spray Cleaner from "The Reliable 1" - get it at the local RV place... I spray it on full strength and let it work for a minute or two, then use my soft carwash brush to scrub them right off. I do it before washing the entire trailer with carwash soap.

AWESOME, you can get it at dollar stores and Wal Mart. works great. Then apply a coat of wax. Now when I park my trailer I make sure the front end is higher than the back.
