How to clean A/C Streaks from windows

I have streaks on the windows of our VEGAS 25.2 from A/C condensation dripping.

Have tried many ways to clean, but nothing seems to work.

Anyone have a good solution?

Apply a little rubber hose to where the condensation runs out and that way it drips farther away from the RV

Like fhenn says, 0000 steel wool, make sure the window is dry. I use steel wool on the windshield too, gets everything off! Learned this trick from a friend who has been a professional detailer for over 35 years.

Good advice. Will that work on fiberglass without scratching?

No, please do not use on anything except windows. Steel wool will scratch and dull the paint finish or gel coat. Use a good quality cleaner wax for the walls.

Once you steel wool the windshield put on a good coat of RainX or similar product. This will prevent those streaks from returning.

I thought you were pulling my leg when you said "steel wool" to clean windows, but IT WORKS!

Tried it with a little water, and circular motions, and the area I tried is now clear and sparkling,,,

Thanks for the advice, I hated to have a coach less than a year old, and windows that looked like they were ten years old.

I think you'll find that using the steel wool dry will give you better results. My detailer friend was pretty adamant about having the glass dry. Another trick I learned was on the inside to get the yellow hazy film off. Use denatured alcohol mixed 50/50 with water, takes the haze right off with no streaks.
