Default Outside cleaning question

Does anyone have any advice on how to remove the black spots/stains around the molding of the windows of the camper?

Hi Tina, welcome to our happy band of campers!

I'd try something like Simple Green or maybe 409. I know I used something like that the last time I cleaned my trailer. A "cleaning wax" might work to get rid of really stubborn leftover stains.

Welcome Tina and congrats on your purchase! You might try a product called Goo Gone. Test on an area that is not too visible first, though:

Tina, welcome to the forum and congrats on the "new" Hi Lo. I had no trouble removing those stubborn stains once I used a white Scotch Brite pad and heavy duty rubbing compound, then cleaned that off with water and when dry, I applied a good wax (Mothers or McGuires) same as I use on the sides. Worked for me!

Default Cleaning exterior

After you have cleaned off as much as you can then use magic eraser sponges. I have had good luck on stubborn spots with these. I was able to buy a bucket of them at Sams Club. I'm sure someone makes a "knock off brand of these".
