Usually a good polish will remove the streaks or try WD40 sprayed on a cloth then wiped over the streaks but keep the WD40 away from any Decals as it will remove these as well. I'm sure there will be lots of other suggestions coming along.

To remove black streaks I use Fenwicks motorhome cleaner neat on a damp cloth, or a handheld spray bottle with a highly concentrated mix of the cleaner, the black streaks just melt away before your eyes (dont bother with their black streak remover as it's only a concentrated mix of their caravan cleaner anyway) then wash the vehicle down as per normal either with Fenwicks or any other quality shampoo... don't ever use a pressure washer gimmefive

Sorry Paul I didn't try winding out the awning in my spring clean of the van. But perhaps you could wind it out then lower the legs to make it more accessible.

I did clean out some green algae along the top of the awning cover.

I also found out how simple it was to take off and clean the Dometic fridge vents. Easier to steal than the winter covers mentioned in another thread.

Now I'm all ready for spring outings. smile!

And once it is all sparkly and clean wax it...... meguiars, collinite, use what you like best but either a synthetic wax or something with as much carnauba as possible! Black streaks will just wash off then but never use washing up liquid or degreaser as a shampoo or all your hard work will be in vain!
