Default 5th Wheel Clean up

The 5th wheel has been sitting for a couple of years and is about to go back into use. What, when accompanied by the correct amount of elbow grease, is the best soap / solvent / etc. to clean the exterior.

Simple Green will take it off without compromising the finish. Bleach will remove the wax and other sealers that prevent the elements from breaking down the fiberglass. Lots of elbow grease there hand!

I used to clean RV's when I was working part time on my off days. Voom Cleaner was the best I've found for black streaks and bugs. Simple Green was next if I ran out of Voom. SG took a little more elbow grease. You can get Voom from Amazon. I was buying it from a well known Camping retailer (witch I will not mention) before Amazon was born.

Power washer with a spiral power tip.
If you want to try some soap you can..but a power washer will win the day for you.
