    What does anyone use to remove the black streaks that run down the sides of enclosed trailers? :cry:

    I believe it's coming from the rubber trim that runs around the top.

    Thanks to all.

    Mine hasn't had them since I first bought it, But I used simple green to clean the black mess. It worked well.

    it is from the roof the rubber and dirt sittin on the top of the trailer a bush does a great job of cleaning it if you clean the top of the trailer from a ladder and long bush that stops the problem for awhile.

    Wal-mart in the auto-trailor section product called "Black Streak Remover" for camping trailors and RV. Works great.

    Keep the trailer waxed, and then the black streaks wipe off easily with a soft cloth.
