Ok, so i decided to put some caulking on my trailer to fill in the gaps as the normal maintenance. With my luck, it started to rain and the caulking bled all on the sides. How do i clean this crap off without damaging/fading my trailer? I have a black enclosed. Also, is there some type of wax that i can use that wont fade the aluminum? Any info would be great

Sorry, but I have no advice but I was wondering if someone could help me also. I have the same problem but its on the side of my truck instead.

Anyone? I was told to use WD-40 on it. I tried it, keeps it shiny, but don't know if it's good for the trailer. I did it on a small area, but didnt get rid of all the grime.

try some carburator cleaner on a rag and rub it off. then taking some rubbing compound and clean it really good.

Bad idea. It takes off the black aluminum.. or close to it. I sprayed it on and i saw black when i was rubbing it off.

Try (Preps All ) Auto Body shops use it to get old stickers from vinyl lettering off. You can also try Goof off
