Washing camper

Did I read in here something about a product that will remove the dark streaks on the camper? If so please tell me the name of the product. Btw the outside of out camper is metal.

My dealer recommended "Awesome". I get it at the Dollar store and it is cheap.

When using totally awesome mix it about 20 percent. 80 water. Don't use it straight will remove paint. You can mix little stouter but be careful. Does good job lot better than black streak remover

Dumb question. Is it recommended to use a pressure washer on the camper? What about the rubber roof?

Here's one discussion......I don't....

Is it safe to use a power washer on an RV?

I use "Garry's Marine & RV Surface Prep" prior to the waxing. It removed all the rain spots and black rain stains. Don't let the link below scare you, I picked mine up at Ollies for $1.99 for the 16 oz bottle.

I don't use a power washer...way too many decals and I don't want to hurt the seals around things. (But I suppose you could if you're careful.)

I do use a big, extendable washing wand that I found at Walmart years ago...I need to replace mine, actually, makes those long reaches much easier for both the RV and my truck.

This one looks nice

Thanks for all the replies. I have used a soap wand hooked to a garden hose and a brush in the past, but have seen others use a power washer. Will stick to the brush and soap wand.
