Our '71 Tradewind had been used as a poker den by the PO. We tried Simple Green with only moderate success. It took engine degreaser to get the scummy film and stink off the inside curved walls.

Recommend simple green for most jobs. It's not harsh, environmentally friendly, and tough enough to use in industrial and military applications.

I ended up going with krud kutter and then rinceing real well with clear water. It worked great, no more funky stickiness. Im going to go over it one more time with vinegar and water to make sure all residue is gone. Thanks for all the suggestions!!

Final note on simple green.... It's non-toxic, and can be used around food prep areas and drinking water. I personally used a small amount to sterilize a camelback while in an austere environment. Water was potable, camelback was contaminated.

This is the best stuff in the market!!! It puts simple green to shame and what's even better it's only $1. Get it from dollar tree or family dollars. It called LA's Totally Awesome. When I bought my Rv 8 yrs ago it belonged to a smoker that used it as his home. The walls were yellow and some spots were brown especially around the stove top where grease was plentiful. I tried everything with no success. My dad bright me this bottle of stuff and said try this and voila you could see the grime melt off the walls. I use it for EVERYTHING NOW! I've even help out a guy at an Rv park that couldn't get grease stains off of his hood. We sprayed it on and it took all of it off. I use it in my carpet shampooer for my rentals and in my power washer. Try it. It's only $1 and the best $1 you'll ever spend. Click image for larger version

Others have mentioned this product too. Have you used it on the outside shell, does it take off Mold, Black streaks, etc without damaging the finish?

Personally , I hate Simple Green - it stinks, is hard on your skin. ZEP Products from Home Depot work way better. - Works quicker, easier, less scrubbing, no odor, easy on skin.
Zep 505 degreaser took all the sticky stuff off the interior of my trailer with one wipe - i just mixed some with water and wiped the interior down with a sponge.

Zep has many products, window cleaners, citrus all purpose, 505 heavy degreaser.

great on wheels, windows etc. 505 removes rust stains as well. - I don't use it for washing the exterior but i am sure you could.

Our rock guards in the front of our trailer are stainless steel and for those we use bartenders friend. It makes them look new again.

I use it to was the exterior of my Rv which is polished and haven't had a problem. Spray some on a rag and spot clean somewhere to ck it out.

Mouse Fir

How about cleaning what our dealer calls "mouse fir" on our Classic interior walls? Stains are coming through near the floor that we understand is from the glue leaching through. Is there a solution to removing these stains?

I agree, it is Totally Awesome ... BUT be careful, it is very strong and can actually take the paint off some things. Trust me about that. I used it on the exterior of an Argosy I was working on, and you could see it removing the paint!

It is a fantastic product, best grease remover around a kitchen stove I have ever found. Just understand you may want to test it first to be sure it does not remove things other than you wish.
