Help brown road repair stains on coach.

Driving in NM there was road work being done.
We were single filed past what they were doing.
Got home and noticed these brown stains on driver rear and I guess some splashed on back of motorhome as brown specs.
Tried RV Wash and wax twice and very little came off.
Any suggestions on cleaning solutions?
Thanks experts

Had a similar thing happen about 20 years ago when the state took over our county road and improved it. I used copious amounts of turtle wax bug and tar remover. Sprayed it on an let it soak. Then sprayed more and let it soak. Did that all day on a Saturday. On Sunday it all came off at the car wash with the power wand.

Wd40 works great on tar, spray it on a rag and tar wipes right off.

I have found that WD-40 also works to remove tree sap.

I spot tried recommendations suggested.

The Amazon tar remover is amazing.

I think I only need to apply once to each area and the tar melts off in my limited test.

The other products I need to apply 2 to 5 times.
Appreciate
Starting project
