Pitch and road tar

I want to cry -pitch and road tar on my new AS. How does one safely clean this from the body and the windows which are of course of a different material? Thank you.

WD-40 works on the aluminum or stainless steel parts of the trlr, or auto, for that matter. A simple wash with car wash soap would remove the dirt attracting tendency of WD-40. It would be OK on glass. Not sure on plastic or lexan ?

Orson, try Walbernize, available thru Airstream dealers. It was developed for that purpose & works really well. I use it regularly on all surfaces. Good luck.

Any automotive product that can be used on clearcoat paints can be safely used on the newer Airstream's. Another product that will work well to remove road tar, etc is GooGone. Walbernize is not recommended for use on late model Airstream's with a clearcoat finish.
