    What is the best way to clean white trailers. After a year or so they look dingy form the alum oxide and weather. I welcome your ideas, Maybe an R/V cleaner?

    Thanks Guys

    I use degreaser, but RV cleaner would probably work even better. If you find something that works...let me know.

    there is something I picked up at my local parts store called spray 9, It does a great job at cleaning pretty much everything.

    I used Simple green, for the black oxidized white paint. it worked the best out of Purple stuff, Grease lighten, and heavy duty cleaner. Spray on full strength and lightly brush in with a pole brush. Then rinse with water within two minutes to keep the oxidize from setting back in the paint. Repeat if needed for perfection. The trailer looks new now.
