Use Walbernize for cleaning and protecting the Airstream finish.

I use a car wash product such as Blue Coral Car Wash for washing the Airstream and then wax with Walbernize. Airstream recommnends using kerosene to remove tar. I will usually get some tar on my stone guards and have used Colemen Latern Fuel to remove it from the uncoated stone guard. I would not use it on the areas that have the clear coat finish. Zip Dee suggestes that you use plain water to clean the awning canvas and approximatly every two or three years clean the canvas with Zip Dee's Wash Out product.

I recently washed truck and trailer with a car wash solution I purchased at Mennards ,which is a home improvement store and may not be available in all areas. Its some kind of citrus base. It did very well on both considering they both a very close and some what under a Maple tree and I think there was some sappy stuff that was on both. It did and excellent sob. The label said it was none corrosive so I used it. It was the cheapest car wash product they had.I was pleased with the results. Bought a nice long handled Soft brush also. The Combo worked well.
