I have blackstreaks that seam to generate around or from the rubber mouldings sealing the windows. What do the experienced rv'ers out there use to clean these and/or preserve them from this happening. Is there a specific item you use. Thank you, I'm off to work now.

Using Armour-All seems to lessen, but not eliminate, the problem. To clean it, use "black streak remover" available in the RV section of Wal-Mart, Automotive stores, or Camper World.

It's a pain....

CW sells black plastic stick-on channel molding which you can stick over and under the windows to catch the runoff and re-direct it to someplace not so visible. Or it may just evaporate in the new channel.

I just use Simple Green to remove, then rinse well.

Saw a guy who redirected roof runoff by clipping a clothes pin to the drip point, caused it to run down the clothes pin and drip away from the vehicle. Usually it trashes the wheel arches drives me nuts.

If she's getting moldy, put a clothes pin on her drip points and clean her off with Simple Green, then Armor-All her. Good as new !

And may I ask just what a rubber widow is?? Just kidding! (Actually, a rubber widow sounds a bit obscene!)
