How to clean stains off aluminum trim

We have a 2014 Work & Play 25 ULA. It has aluminum trim around the back and sides. The back near the roof line has some stains from rain and dirt. We has washed the unit and there are still stain streaks.

Anyone have a good product to recommend or method to clean off the stains and help keep them off?

and look for a bare metal clear coat spray, make sure you clean the metal with brake cleaner or something first before you clear coat it,,,,just a thought

To get bug stains/residue off chrome put water in spray bottle, insert 1 dryer sheet. Let sit for one minute then spray onto chrome and wipe off.

Diamond Brite truck tool box polish from Lowe's @ 12.98. I had a 2007 W&P TH and used this to clean up all the aluminum trim before we sold it. It works great!

Only one I found that works great, and I have tried a lot is BUSCH. This stuff removed calcium chloride stains from BILLET wheels on my coup. Happened one year driving home from FL in Jan.
