I agree that WD-40 has many uses. Doesn't it contain Petroleum distillates? I read somewhere that this causes damage and shrinkage to decals. There are several threads on this in Forest River and other forums.

I guess if you didn't let it touch the decals that would be OK. I have too many friends with decal issues to try something like WD-40 for cleaning black streaks. I use Simple Green straight to clean black streaks. I spray it on a soft to medium bristle brush, after wetting the exterior surface of the camper. They come off with very little scrubbing. I also wash the roof 2 - 3 times a season. That helps a lot.

I tried to find the "LA Totally Awesome" product from my local Walmart but they do not carry, I live in Canada and that magic border seems to stop a lot of items from entering...lol.

As for using wd-40 on the rig...not in this life. WD-40 has it uses like ee said and if you have a decal that may have a loose corner or rip or tear go ahead and get it wet with the stuff. You will be loosing that decal soon! I have found that on paint it does more harm than good over a period of time. Anything with an abrasive is obviously going to damage the gel coat. If the cleaner can remove wax from my car its not going to touch my rig.

Keeping up on cleaning the roof is a must, I agree. Gutter extensions are another must.

I guess we all have our tricks or favorite wonder cleaner.

I just picked up some yesterday at the Dollar Tree store. I don't know if you have those stores up there in Canada. It's kind of funny a lot of the stuff thats in the store and French language printed on it.

I wouldn't use WD40 for that reason. On purpose I have used it to remove decals/stickers that have been applied to our TT; does a great job to 'soften' the glue and remove it (sticker) cleanly.
