Removing Black Streaks

I was looking at this product the other day and was wondering if anyone had any experience using it. I have tried the black streak remover you buy at Wally World and from the RV dealer and they work, but with a ton of wiping and major elbow grease. The video (if that is really all you have to do) looks really easy! If you scroll down to the description, they have a video showing them cleaning the side of a camper.

GO JO is the best to get black streaks off. Regular GoJo hand cleaner. Make sure it does not have the pumas (grit) mixed in.

x2 on the Awesome from Dollar Tree. But make sure you rinse it off thoroughly. It takes them off without much effort at all. I tried the commercial black streak remover and it didn't touch my black streaks. Everyone on here touts a good wax job as a good black streak preventer. I bought myself a bottle of NuFinish, which I will apply this spring after the first wash, de-winterizing, tank sanitizing. Didn't get to it in fall. Not looking forward to this huge job with a 32' TT, but it is a necessary evil.

LOL, I hear ya! I used to do my Cherokee which was 27" and aluminum sided. It would take 3 nights after work to knock it out. Huge job! I can do my entire 32' foot gelcoat in 1 night, so much easier.

I recommend Meguires NXT. Stuff is great and I love the smell.

I used Nufinish on half and Meguires NXT on the other half. IMO, both done an equal job. The Nufinish is much cheaper. The only problem with the Nufinish is that if you get some on the colour plastic, it's there for life. The NXT washes off. Either application will certainly help with black streak removal. Wax first and the black streaks usually come off with car wash soap and a soft brush, no problem.

Thanks for the responses. Is this stuff safe for the vinyl graphics, or do you have to watch using it around them?

When I washed up for the winter, I just washed the camper, and all the black streaks (from rain/grime etc) that were left wiped right away with a quick wipe of Meguires Cleaner Wax. I used Meguires Cleaner Wax for the sides and Meguires Pure Carnuba for the top of my A-Frame (A-126). Looked tons better than it did the day we picked it up form the dealer.

Has anyone done a comparison test with their favorite wax versus protect all? The protect all sure does go on and wipes off easier than regular wax.

The best streak remover that I've found is "streak-be-gone"
My local rv dealer said that it's the first product they've come across in 15 years that actually works. I also use it for cleaning streaked home gutters.

Thanks for the info! How great are these forums?! I searched "black streaks", read the thread and decided to give this product a try. It works great with virtually no elbow grease needed! And the price is right!

Wax's

Finally found a product that does it all..The Flynn's Polish's works on everything you put it on. There Ebony Polish has a 3000 GRIT to it, so the product removes minor scratch's with little or no effort..There other like of products, Black Streak Remover does well on white wall tires, grease spots on the driveway and yes, Black Streaks on the RV..Had on on the side of the new RV this morning, went out an sprayed a little on, came back ten minutes later, hit it with the water hose, came right off...Check out there full line of products, I use the all in my detailing business...Located in Lawrenceville, GA. Steve Flynn..

Is Awesome safe to use on painted aluminum siding? I think several people that have replied on this topic have fiberglass siding. I just wanted to check before I bought some.
