When I took off the tarp, there are black slash marks where the winds whipped the tarp on one side. The marks are not from the bungie cords because those are on the bottom. I can't get the black marks off. Any ideas? Thanks!
Welcome to airforums.com! How about posting some photos of your new baby...?
This comes up fairly frequently, the winter tarp marks, and usually when it does, the recommendation is to polish it out.
Read through the "Exterior Restoration Forum" though, it has a couple of sub-forums about "Cleaning, Stripping, & Polishing" and "Clearcoat, Exterior Paint & Trim".
You may need to determine whether you still have clear coat on your trailer, and if so, does it need to come off to get rid of the marks...
