    Default Best "car wash" for white sided sundowner

    I can't take the black streaks any longer.

    Suggestions?

    I read about Purple Power and wonder if it is safe?

    I followed every recommendation I ever saw on here and nothing ever came close to working. Now I take it to the truck stop and have them acid wash it once or twice a year and it looks brand new. They charge $15 plus the price of a wash so about $25 total if I remember correctly.

    I just take mine to the do it yourself car wash and wash with their soap and pressure hose. No more black streaks and no mold.

    White Lightning works. The real deal acid wash works even better. Get thee to the truck stop

    Reporting back-Purple Power from AutoZone worked like a CHARM!

    Go to Home Depot, or someplace similar, and buy the Citrus clean stuff. Works well and it's cheap.
    The other way to get rid of black streaks is to buy awning cleaner, wet the trailer, spray that on, let it sit, then wash with any carwash.
