I own a 2010 Puma 26RLSS (Aluminum sided) TT.

About a week ago, I was giving the TT a good wash. (I live in the south, so it's the climate isn't too cold for this task.) I had some black streaks that the Gel Gloss Wash/Wax wouldn't get off, so I bought Thetford Black Streak Remover and they came off like a champ. EXCEPT...

In two areas (hand-size) it appears as though the black streak remover discolored my white aluminum siding. It's streaky and a light bluish-purple color. The finish is still smooth (doesn't appear to eaten through the pain), but I can't seem to get the stain out.

Any advice? How hard can I scrub? Should I scrub? I've googled this to death, and I can't seem to find any guidance on how to address this blemish.

I'll try to post a picture tomorrow.

Oooh, I'm not sure what to tell you. I had that happen on a TT I owned but in my case you could see the aluminum after it got done eating through the finish. I'm really nervous about black streak remover since then.

I would try some wax, the other thing you can try is some rubbing compound - then wax.

If the rubbing compound works, you might actually have a big job ahead of you as you might need to lightly rub the whole trailer to keep it evenly buffed up.
