Black streaks

I'm having trouble cleaning black streaks off my 2019 Wildwood xlite. Black streak remover doesn't work on the rough siding of the trailer. I've tried everything to no avail.

Any help would be appreciated.

Accept no substitute

Here’s what I’ve found can get rid of just about anything……short of using a belt sander.
Available at Dollarama etc…..or Home Depot

IMPORTANT
Read the dilution percentages listed on the back for a variety of surfaces.

You could try Starbrite Hull Cleaner. It’s made for cleaning gelcoat on fiberglass on boats. Put it on for about 4 minutes and rinse off. I use a sponge mop to rub it on with. Scrubbing doesn’t help it work faster. It’s pretty amazing stuff if this ends being what you need.

Didn't seem to remove any of the streaks. I think t is the powder coated finish on the siding. Not a smooth surface!

Our 8528 has a slick fiberglass surface so this may be of little help. But I bought some fairly cheap black streak remover from camco at the local farm store because I didn't have time to run out to the rv store. It worked shockingly well. It's definitely cheap enough to try, your really only out the time.

And I looked through the forum (I thought) exhaustively for about an hour, and I see this post with the exact same answers I got for my post about 15 minutes after posting. Yep, I'm an idiot.
