    Hi there. Sorry this is about another subject; I am in need of cleaning up an older Terry Travel Trailer. The aluminum siding has oxidized and the product I bought just doesn’t do anything…! My fear is I’ll buy numberous products and get no closer to my goal. Please spare me__the time,frustration and expense. Must ” measure-up” with my neighboors soon. Thank You

    Try AWESOME, a cleaning product from Dollar General. Cheap and works great! Some black streaks are just too old to be cleaned, but AWESOME does work wonders. I tried bleach and more expensive products and had just as much luck with AWESOME. Goodd luck.

    Hi, Kristi. You might try some products in the RV or boating section at Walmart. I used 3M Fiberglass Cleaner & Wax on my rig and it worked very well. It’s for “lightly oxidized surfaces”. It might work on painted aluminum. BTW, the prices at Walmart certainly beat most RV dealers, if you can find what you want. Good luck.

    Hi:
    I have used Awesome and it really works. Another trick is to try non-scratching Comet or similar and I’ve found Greased Lightning works great also. For Awesom and Greased Lightning, wet a section down, spray some on your brush and brush it down and rinse. If some marks persist, spray some on a cloth and rub firmly then rinse.

    Hi,
    One of the best things to work ALONG side the Awesome and Grease Lightning is the yellow teflon scrubbers used for your non-stick calphon pots. They will not scratch you paint. We used them to remove bugs from the windshields and paint on our aircraft, cars, and the other parts. They are in the mop and broom of your store. A wax that works great to remove the oxidation and return the shine is Starbrite marine polish. You can find this at Walmart or any marine/boat RV store.
