Default Water marks, Black stains, on Exterior

I have tried CLR, WD40, car polish, etc, all short of a buffer for application, has anyone found an easy way to remove the stains of years of negect by previous owners.

No, I'm too busy dealing with years of neglect by the current owner (me).

Seriously, though, I have heard good things about a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. But I have not yet used it -- I am still wallowing in neglect.

I don't know if it would remove black stains but a 'clay bar' works wonders on vehicles to eliminate imperfections. A 'clay bar' is available at any automotive parts store, walmart and other box stores in their automotive department.

We used Dawn Dish liquid on a green scrubby. Don't scrub too hard. It looks great now! The previous owner saw us at the campground and said "Wow she looks so clean"!

the key word here is "easy way". I haven't found any of those but I did find a marine cleaner/wax from 3M at our large box sports store. It was a bit pricey for wax but I had read some comments on it. It goes on a little hard so keep to about 12"x12" space before buffing it off. The parts that I did looked really good. I started on the fiberglass nose and sad to say except for some more test spots that is as far as I went. I can't attest to the longevity yet.
