This is all I use. Love the stuff. Use with a pole brush.

I have used Reliable RV cleaner quite a bit over the years to great effect. It ain't cheap but a little goes a long way. Wipes them right off. You should wax after but you don't have to.

This will take your black streaks off and leave a nice coat of wax behind

We have an aluminum siding travel trailer. We can't get rid of the black streaks. We have tried the LA Awesome cleaner with a pressure sprayer and had no luck. Any suggestions??


LA Awesome has always worked perfectly for me. I also have aluminum siding. While I'm washing I just hit the streaked areas with a spray bottle, and by the time I grab the wash mitt the streaks wipe right off. Hit the streaks with a spray bottle and let it sit for about a minute. At a $1 a bottle at the dollar store you can't beat it. The stuff is "awesome". (sorry)

Wash your camper several times, for several months using a good wash and wax soap like Meguiars, Turtle Wax, or Mothers. You need to wash out the dirt and grime that is causing these blacks streaks running down your windows, gutters, vents.

To wipe off black streaks, try Meguiars Waterless Wash and Wax. Mothers also has one. FW1 also has one, but have not seen it Wal Mart. These waterless products have wax in them.

Awesome is the easy method I've tried.

I've used magic eraser, as stated do not scrub with it.

A bigger question would be: we're in the year 2019 and manufacturers can't find or develop a rubber that doesn't bleed down our RVs? Seriously?

We've been using Awesome from a dollar store for years.

Rain gutter extensions help a lot.
