A1 totally Awesome (Dollar Tree) and Magic eraser. Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser works well too.

I second "Magic Eraser". When I did ours, it was heavily oxidized and had the black streaks, too. I started with Magic Eraser and followed up with a little Simple Green in a bucket of water - then gave her a good rinsing and waxing. Did a great job!

I was going to ask which "magic eraser" as Mr.Clean has so many of them. Anyway I thought this link was interesting.

HowStuffWorks "Melamine Foam"

I'll second the Awesome. This one. LA's Totally Awesome Products

We get it at Dollar General. Some times the other dollars stores do not always have it.

The process I use is:

Mix up bucket of water and Awesome.
Rinse camper and leave wet.
Use car brush on a pole and wash camper with diluted Awesome.
Rinse well. (do not let the camper dry before rinsing. black stuff bakes back on again. Keep a wet edge)

If there are any left over black that did not come off,

Wet camper
Spray Awesome on direct full strength from squirt bottle.
Use Mr Clean Magic eraser ( I use the original one)
Rinse well soon after. Do small area to keep wet edge.

To heads up:

Do not let Awesome full strength on the dry camper and dry on. We have one member who left it on too long and had paint issues. Wet camper 1st, rinse right after use.

If you have wax or UV spray protectors on, the Awesome removes them. Have to redo.

Caution on the Magic eraser on high polished clear plastic or super high polished fiberglass. It is a very super fine abrasive. I have never had an issue on the aluminum siding or any white plastic of the Sunline. But do not use this on a high gloss car paint finish.

The Awesome is amazing and cheap. And I have used a lot of cleaners over the years to still come back to it. Also use it in the house with Magic eraser to cut soap scum out of the shower. Wife tried almost everything with no lusk and then I suggested this. Now I have a new job

If there are black streaks Bar Keepers Friend can't be beat. I bought a Toyota MH a few years ago that lived under a tree for many years it was black and that was the only thing I could find that would clean it. If there is a boat yard near you it is called Teak cleaner it has Oxalic acid in it but it won't damage any parts of the camper it also will clean your camper sink like you would not believe!

Here's another thumbs up for awesome. I buy a couple of bottles each time I go into a Dollar Store. The stuff is great. Also does a great job on floors.

I use Fantastic or Spray Nine but use sparingly and rinse well and do small areas at a time. Do not let this stay on graphics (decals) too long. I never wax anymore, I spray Armoural and use a wet car washing brush and wipe the entire trailer and let it sit for several hours or come back the next day and rinse. Works great for tires too. You may have to do this several times to get the lustre back and it makes washing so much easier. This works great to spray the front of your trailer and car before hitting the road, bugs will be very easily cleaned off when you wash the next time. To help avoiding black streaks try to keep the roof as clean as possible but this is hard to do. Hope this helps.

We have had very good experience with KORKAY. Does a great job removing black streaks and staining on our awnings. Has anyone else used it?

Yes, I have used the Korkay. It does work acceptable. However I navigated back to the Awesome. The Awesome for me worked a little better and a lot cheaper at the Dollar General. The Korkay I had to order from online.

Ditto on Magic Eraser. We used it and Bar Keepers Friend to get rid of black streaks and stains. It worked wonders. Just buff lightly with the Magic Eraser. Bar Keepers Friend has a chemical in it that needs thorough rinsing when you're done.

diesldaddy, do you spray armoural on your whole camper, or just the decals?

I spray Armoural on the entire trailer, works good and is much easier, usually about 2 or 3 times per year
