The grey blotches are oxidation from where the coating was thin or non-existent. If you don't plan on going to a bright polish try Bon Ami bathroom cleaner to see if you can buff to oxidation out. (Try on an inconspicuous area first)

Thanks! That was beginning to be my suspicion. I have actually polished about half of the trailer so far, up to the final duo cycle part. So I will polish it. Since it was splotchy it fooled into thinking it was clear coat. This is on the top of the trailer, so it makes since that the clear coat should be about gone anyway.

I used this product from Vintage yesterday http://www.vintagetrailersupply.com/...-p/vts-574.htm
Soaked for 2 hrs then power washed it off. Wouldn't recommend power washing unless you plan to reseal panels. PO had used silicone on seams and this product loosened and removed it. Perfect for me. Interior has already been demo'd in order to address sealing from the inside. Click image for larger version

So you would or wouldn't recommend pressure washing? I'd think pressure washing would be effective in rinsing everything off. But is it a pressure thing on the older seals? Is the pressure of a garden hose nozzle enough?

Because the power washer will drive water under the outer skins I wouldn't use it unless you have the inside skins off - IMHO. Your hose with a sprayer attachment will work fine. Most of my clearcoat was sliding off even before spraying.

Garden sprayer worked for me. Also used a nylon brush attachment. I think power washing would require you to reseal.
