Question Mildew removal from exterior trim?

I have an '06 Salem 26BH. The trim (metal rails with the plastic/rubber seam that run around the roof line and down the front and back corners) appears to have mildew on it.

I can't seem to get the mildew off the trim. I've tried various cleaners without any success.

Anyone have some recommendations?

Thanks!

I don't know if this will work for you or not, but I read in another thread that someone has used "Wet n' Forget" to clean up their mildew and mold issues. I bought a gallon of it at the local Ace hardware store and will be spraying it onto my bunk ends of my roo once I get settled in our spot in a few weeks. It can be bought online as well, price varies from place to place, but from everything I've read, it's well worth a try. Good luck.

Joe

If the cleaners fail, you can buy the vinyl insert for the trim. Available at RV parts places. It will really brighten up the camper.
