Black streak remover from rv store. Can't for the life of me remember the name of it.

As for black streaks many have recommended Amazing cleaner from dollar tree. I have used and it does work but my concern is how strong it is and takes wax off. I waxed my MH this summer and it is a JOB, but the wax took the black streaks off better than anything else I have tried. Another benefit of the wax is the streaks clean off so much easier after you wax. My MH is not full body paint and the oxidation of the gelcoat was fairly extensive since it sits out side in the weather. I would like to get another coat of wax on it but not sure when that will happen.

Not so much as what I am doing to my camper but what the Campingworld dealership is going to do..
I get a new outside speaker and awning for my 2703WS because the numbnuts at Campingworld in Calera Alabama backed a trailer into mine....
Tore my awning 3 - 4 layers down (it was rolled up of course) and a good 10 inch gash..
Broke the speaker off the camper ..
Damaged the body...
Campingworld says that they just don't know HOW that would have happened and one of their people actually suggested that it didn't happen on their lot!! (BTW where my camper has been for the past 4 weeks waiting on warranty work!)
And, of course, they just couldn't understand why I got soooo upset
I will never understand these people.

Replaced most of my interior lights with these LEDs.
20X Warm White T10 921 194 RV Trailer 42 SMD 12V Backup Reverse LED Lights Bulbs | eBay

They aren't as bright as the incandescent bulbs but will be fine for most of the fixtures.

For the main fixtures, I've ordered these to see if they are brighter

I think I would be attentive to the screw and wire openings since they have been exposed to the elements. Doesn't take much for water to find a way in. I'd check to see if there might be some staining/water damage in an interior cabinet or down a wall before you sign off on the repair.

Just my .02.

Timex I have to agree with you. It has been raining here too much and I know water got in -- the speaker was FULL of water.
Something tells me they are going to try to get over on me any way they can. That seems to be their way of doing customers.

Side detail, where I had to cut the trim to get a good seat for the bracket. I used 14-2 2" hex-head metal screws, not self-tapping, to get through the wood framing that is between the bottom skin and the I-beam.

Front detail. This was the show stopper last year. If you put the bracket up against the seam, the bolts are 1/8" inch from the edge of the I-beam. I imagined the would rip right through. I took a 5/8" thick block of bamboo flooring I had laying around and used is to build a level platform for the bracket, and cut some of the plastic underbody away. I used construction glue to hold the block in place, bored holes through it, and again used the same 14-2 screws. Nice fit. Coated the entire thing with black Rustoleum (and got some rusting spots while I was down there).
