I use soft scrub on my boat. It seems mild enough

I'd try Bar Keeper's Friend. It has a very mild abrasive and oxalic acid.

I would just use a 3M Marine Cleaner and Wax.

I would try something bland like dawn soap first. If not, then I would go up to a cleaner, and then to barkeepers friend, especially depending on age of trailer.

Black streaks

I have used gel-gloss RV cleaner & wax from camping world on my Bigfoot. Removes black streaks with little effort and leaves a great shine. Camping world item # 18002
