chalky white streaks

I have chalky white streaks on the sides of the rv.
Appears to be coming from roof.
Do I just wash the roof if so what chemicals??
Do I have to paint the roof with some rubber solution??

I have the same as well from the sides and from cab roof , the gel coat on the fibre glass has broken down causing the chalk, have contacted couple of places but nothing to fix broken gel coats, polishes etc dont improve it , thinking of paint or clear laquer...
