    Black specks on exterior of coach

    I have developed tiny black specs on the side of my camper. I have been told this is from "shotgun or artillery fungus" from the wood mulch I have along the area where I park the camper. Has anyone else had this issue and if so, can someone make some recommendations on how to remove the spots. I have tried Simple Green and auto compound to no avail. Any help would be appreciated ... thanks, John

    If it is a mold. Powerwashing will clean it up. Ernie

    It's not a mold ... They're almost like poppy seeds

    Black specs on exterior of coach

    Bug eggs or spider poop. Ya got pictures. Try some peroxide and see what it does. You could also try wd40 on a spot. . Wd40 will dissolve bugs and tar and tree sap. . Peroxide should bubble if spider or fly poop. Try weak bleach for mold/mildew. Just some touts.

    I also have these indelible spots on my white Ford. Can scratch of the so called bump but stain remains. Also looking for a way to clean them off.

    Try contacting your Ford dealer as they have excellent ways of cleaning the outside surface of their vehicles and can point you in the right direction.

    Murry, do you by any chance park your Ford next to wood mulch?

    Keep in mind many of the suggestions you have been given will remove the wax. So if you try them you will need to rewax.
