    I'm sure this has been asked a million times already but can anyone advise how to remove the black marks that are formed from water running off MH when its not in use.....I tried with wax but to no avail.

    Got to keep my sparkling nearly 12month old dethleffs sparkling::bigsmile:

    cheers

    Buy a bottle of "Star Drops" the plain type in a bottle that you dilute, and use an old plastic spray..

    Not the Kitchen Star Drops Spray... That contains "Bleach"...:Sad:

    Spray diluted onto offending area and the black marks will wipe off easy.. :thumb:

    most motorhomes dont have paint as such.....its a gel coat applied in the laying up process of the fiberglass panel and is more robust than regular paint.

    a good wipedown and regular waxing, especially round the window openings, after rain is usually enough to keep black streaks at bay.
    the crap seems to leach out of the flexible sealant and rubber window seals.

    G101 has been mentioned in previous threads I believe-I have obtained a small bottle but am a bit dubious about it.
    When a substance is labelled 'Non-Caustic' and then I see it contains Sodium Hydroxide ::bigsmile: It makes me wonder :ROFLMAO:
    Any users care to advise on dilution rates for paintwork ?
