That's normal. Just use The Works toilet bowl cleaner (other toilet bowl cleaners won't work) or if you want to get real intense, Muriatic Acid and water at about a 1:3 ratio or a little less. Wear gloves and safety glasses.

If those don't work - wetsanding, rubbing compound, polishing compound, then wax will definitely do the trick.

I used to use sno bol on my white hull. Nothing like it. Try not to breathe it though and rinse well. Wear rubber gloves or keep rinsing your hands too.

I used Meguires marine cleaner wax on mine... Or If that doesn't work star brite hull cleaner which is muriatic acid I believe... the acid can bleach yr trailer if you aren't careful

No, it won't affect the finish, just be sure to hose it off and clean afterward

When your rider has a huge wipeout that scares the ______ out of them, it is advisable to circle around once or twice, dousing them with a few nice rollers to wash off any residual _____ before you pull up and stop in the _____ to ask if they are ok and pick them up. :eek:
