Black Streaks on Camper

My wife and i purchased our first camper. Its a 2004 30ft nomad scout. It has aluminum siding and has black streaks down certain parts of it. What is the best way to clean it? I bought some of the streak remover stuff from wally world but it didn't work. What does everyone else use? Thanks.

Ok here's what i am going to tell you but make sure that you use this correctly

1. When the trailer is dry spray a small area 2' x 2' of Westley's bleach white tire cleaner on the trailer (be care with this stuff, because its not designed to do this, but it will work really well and dont let the wind get it in your eyes
2. Use mr. magic's eraser clean scrubs to clean that area
3. only do 2 foot sections at a time and dont let sit longer then one minute on the trailer then spray off with water and make sure you keep spraying until its all off just dont rinse... spray very good and try not to do this in the direct sun if possible

this should work really well dont use it on anything automotive painted but aluminum and fiberglass should be fine

oh and one more thing im just letting you know how we wash our trailers and it works but be careful

I use LA's Totally Awesome Products - All Purpose Cleaner

I have tried a lot of different things but this has always removed all of my black streaks... everytime.

Be ready to apply a good coat of wax after you clean the streaks off with this.

Congrats on the new trailer!

I use Scrbbing Bubbles spray. This works great. Just spray on and watch the dirt run off. Wipe off with a rag and then rinse.

If you get the black streaks off, you can prevent them from coming back. First clean your roof real good. Then get some gutter extensions for your camper. it keeps the water from running down the side and making black streaks.
