Stained Vynil wrap or Decals
My MH is an Burstner Anniversary model, so has some wrap that covers about 30-40% of the sides.
There as been no problem up until now.
We have just spent a month in France, and whilst there the van got so filthy so I pulled into one of the car washes you see all over France, by supermarkets etc. to give it a quick swill ! I don't normally use these as I don't want a pressure washer near the MH, but I thought I'd keep it at a distance and just use it lightly, I did the normal wash cycle etc. then rinsed it and got on my way. The van obviously wet from the wash.
The next day I noticed streaks down the vynil, which I assumed were just water lines and would come off, but no, they are stained into the vynil !
I think it is some reaction from the wash system with the vynil ( I have now been told it 'might' be from a wheel wash solution sometimes used at these washes in the system ?), if it was just a reaction with the Autoglym polish I use, I think it would be on the surface, and would come out. This I think is reaction with the vynil, and as 'stained' the vynil.
I have tried to polish out with Autoglym, T Cut, Slinky, WD and neat none silicon wash wax, it wont budge !
Any ideas please ???
Picture wrong way up !!
