RV store sold me $60 bottle of cleaner Scrubbed & scubbed Now it just looks grey all over.Thought it would need a paint job, Then a friend said to try MR CLEAN MAGIC ERASER cost about$1 each.So I did Totally AMAZED Now bright white again cleaned even where I didn't use black streak remover.Now a good wash & wax and (SNOWFLAKE) will be pretty again.Hope this can help anyone trying to clean off the streaks. HAPPY CAMPING BUD&JEAN

Love the name Snowflake (but hate the idea that winter will be here soon).
How many erasers did you use?

Magic erasers are great! The down side is that it can get expensive doing the whole trailer with them and you still need to buy the wax. Have found that the 3M Fiberglass Restore and Wax at just $15 a bottle will do the whole trailer. It will take off not only the black streaks but it will leave you with a good shine as well.
