Exclamation washing argosys

Hi everyone!
As usual, I am at the campground where my trailer lives, using my blackberry to get some info from the forum. I am looking for some advice or direction on how to wash the outside of my argosy.
I have pictures posted here, in the argosy section. Maybe that helps. It has black streaky stuff and definetly dirt and dust.
What is the best method to use? I am thinking of making this just a one day project. If there is a thread already covering this topic, could someone direct me there?
It's a beautiful sunny day here. Too nice to do an indoor project.
Thanks everyone who replies to this.

Hi - wanna do mine too

We use any good car wash solution and a soft bristle brush with an extendable handle (auto parts section walmart). They sell black streak remover - but you may not need it.

You also need a bucket of hot water to mix soap in, a hose to rinse, lawn chair and a cold beer for sitting in and admiring afterwards.

I washed my Argosy once after I bought it. It had the blackish streaks that were sort of mildew looking so I sprayed on a bleach mixture with a garden sprayer (1 cup to 2 gallons water) then I scrubbed with a brush on a pole. Rinse well with clean water. It worked so well I haven't needed to wash it again in 2 years

Good luck,

Steve

Oh, I forgot. Some cleaners that I have I got on an impulse buy a few weeks ago is black streak remover and "trailer glitter rv wash". (Some inexpensive stuff from a local hardware store. )

I use Maguire's Wash/Wax on the Airstream, both vehicles, and have used it on the Argosy. It works well, and leaves the paint with a little shine as well.
