There is a Black Streek remover, you can find it at Walmart, Camping world etc. it does a great job, spray on leave it for a minute wipe off. I use Castrol Superclean for my cleaner, I think it does a much better job than Simple Green. 8:1 mix for general cleaning full strength for a degreaser. I wax every year early in the season, makes washing easier. Get a good brush on a stick, makes washing much easier and you can stay on the ground, other than washing the roof. Have help if you can get it, one washing one rinsing and soaking down. Take your time waxing, if you do the whole rig in one shot you will be worn out. I will follow the sun so I am always in the shade, do a side then do something else for awhile, if it takes a couple weekends to finish up no biggie.

I'd second Collinite! it goes on and comes off easy, and leaves an unbeatable shine that lasts as long as the rest.

I have a 2013 3170DS Sunseeker MH. To wash, I use my power washer carefully. For all else I found a detailer who comes to my residence and completely details the exterior, wash and wax including the fiberglass roof, wheels and tires. Charges me $280 total. I keep my rig in its own garage so it does not get too bad. I feel the price is great to save md the work. By the way, he does excellent work.

I use the black streak remover from WalMart (or your RV parts Dept)
Spray it on and the black wipes away
I'm sure this product takes off the wax so I only use it on the streaks and then re wax those areas

I would be very careful going to a truck wash. My daughter dated a fellow who worked at one in Md. He said they use a hydrofloric acid mixture to clean the semis and trailers. If properly mixed it might not effect your RV too much, but then again, why take the chance.

Fo black streaks, I use WD-40, sprayed on the rag, not the RV. They come right off. Wax, use "Driven" brand. Easy on and off.

We just got here to Joplin, Missouri from Austin, Texas for our summer job,,,,and I caught every single bug and bird poop the 600 miles it took to get here. I washed the roof today,,,,,2 hours,,,,,,the sides,,,,1 hour,,,,and my truck,,,,1/2 hour. I had a shower and crashed in the recliner for the rest of the day. But it's all clean finally. I've always used Dawn and like the way it cleans.

Black Streak Remover also works wonders if you have hard water stains on your tinted windows....

I've been using fabric softener sheets for awhile now. It usually takes about 2 or 3 to do the front of the 5er and 1 for the truck nose. Wet one and the bugs just rub right off. It leaves a slight film that then washes away with plain soap and water.
