Artillery or shotgun fungus

Has anyone encountered this "mysterious black specks" on the siding? and how to completely remove with out damaging the siding. Iíve been doing some reading and it seems that once itís on itís on.

Here's the only possible solution I could find on the Internet. It's from a company that makes a concentrated cleaner called Pro-Tek:

Fungus
- Artillery Fungus Cleaning - The black tar-like substance produced by the spores of this fungus have been giving East Coast homeowners trouble for years.

- We suggest a 20-1 ratio, tested in an inconspicuous area, and increasing ratio as necessary. (Never use full strength without testing)

Here is the link to their website: http://www.protekchemical.com/hints.htm#auto

The Delco Cleaning System's site states that pressure washers should not be used on painted aluminum surfaces and car paint because the finish can be damaged.

I recently traded in my Trailmanor for a 2363.

The trailmanor had an aluminum Krystal Kote exterior also. Though, the exterior seemed thicker or something as it did not budge when you pushed on it. I at first thought it was fiberglass but the invoice does not show that as an option.

Anyway, one of the recommended cleaners by TM users is Scrubbing Bubbles. I used this and a bristle brush and it seemed to work very well.

I am not sure how this will work with the Sunline as for some reason it seems more fragile to me.
