Do a google search for artillery fungus. I had the same issue. My dealer sent me to search. Good luck.

Try hand sanitizer. It will take off pine rosin. Gotta rub, but it may work!

Arillery Fungus-FAQ
Scrape off the excess with a plastic putty knife then use a thick baking soda and water paste with a rag to clean the stain from the camper. If you wash your camper when you are done and apply a good coat of wax it will be easier to clean stains in the future. This process has worked for me.

It definitely looks like artillery fungus. I have it all over my house siding and can not find anything that will remove it. I replaced all of my mulch with rocks because I don't want to mess with it anymore. Good luck.

Artillery fungus makes sense...the motorhome has been parked in my driveway...right next to a mulched hill...that is kept damp by the sprinklers every morning. Now I know better...thanks to all for your help in figuring this out!

I too have the same thing. Thought they were tar splatters until they came back after washing. I successfully used a slightly stronger that normal solution of plain ol' CAMCO RV Wash and Wax. I have a "clear coat" finish and am very cautious about baking soda or anything that may be even the slightest bit abrasive.

It looks like artillery fungus. Here is an interesting article that includes ways to remove it.

Baking soda won't scratch. We use it to clean delicate components. Kinda like sandblasting but you use soda instead of sand
