Looking for a good exterior cleaner for my Jayflight 24RBS

First time owner of an Aluminum construction trailer. For the past 20+ yrs I have owned fiberglass sided trailers which I have used Korkay. Problem is Korkay doesn't list/recommend the cleaner for Aluminum sided products.

So what does everyone recommend to clean aluminum sided trailers, especially when it comes to removing black streaks.

Thank you for your replies
Mike

Iíve found if I keep it well-waxed, a good washing will be enough and the black streaks clean off easily. I use a little Meguiarís Deep Crystal car wash in a big bucket of water to wash it. Meguiarís Marine/RV cleaner wax is what I use to keep it shiny.

mini review here, did buy a gallon of the 303 rv wash and the roof protectant. They didn't seem to have as much muscle as the Korkay and other products I've use in the past, especially when it comes to removing the black streaks. That said it is what it is so I'll probably continue to use the 303 as my gut feeling is I don't think anything else will work mush better with the Aluminum construction trailer.

Thanks everyone for you replies

Mike

I have used KorKay on my aluminum sided trailers before but very cautiously. It clearly states not for use on vinyl graphics.

Use LA's Totally Awesome diluted for the black streaks.

I've just been using a big squirt of Dawn dish soap diluted in a 5 gallon bucket on my 2022 264BH. Works excellent - can it be that simple ?

Dawn will clean the rig but has a big downside - it also removes any wax that you have put on the surface!
