Default trailer question

Have a 2016 tandem trailer. EZ loader brand. Anyway, they put the black rhino lining type stuff on it at factory. Just wondering what others have used to clean this type of material. The usual water spots, stains, etc.

I don't want to ruin the finish so tried a small area with bleach white, the stuff I use on my tires and seemed to work ok. Any others find something that works good? thank you.

This is only a guess, but I would guess that any of the tire rubber cleaning products should work fine.

My Trailmaster trailer has a similar coating that they called "Tundra" coating in 2015.......if I launch out of the Catt at the mouth of Erie it picks up all the clay dirt that creek keeps pumping out......then I need to power wash it, then use a brush on a 4' handle with car wash soap, then power wash it again. Comes out like new........other wise the black coating starts to turn gray/white.

Default thank you

Thanks for the responses guys. Can't believe with all the coated trailers out there that there isn't more discussion on this topic. Not even a lot on Youtube etc. Yeah, the bleach white works fantastic on tires, just wasn't sure how safe it would be as I didn't want to create a problem with the coating but my little 2 inch test area seems to be ok. I rinsed it very well afterwards. I will give the pressure washer, soap, then pressure wash again a try as well. Not sure of how close I want to come to it with the wand as don't know if could blast it off or not. Thanks for the input fellas.

Bobby,
Any reason that you don't like gray/white for a trailer color?

And your point
Gray and white goes well with black.

Just kidding. Of course you want the black trailer to be all black.
