Black dots on body paint

Recently camped for 2 weeks in the woods and came back with black tiny dots on my body paint on the tail end of my 5th wheel I've tried to scrub off and use scratch remover with no success any suggestions on a product to remove those black little dots on paint

I get them, looks like someone used a black ball point pen to make them and they have the constancy of over spray from road tar. The only way i can get them off is to scrape them with my finger nail. More on the shady side then the sunny side. They are fly crap, so wash your hands well. LOL.

Using plain old gas on a rag will wipe them right off, or they do make an automotive liquid tar remover that is paint safe too.

I've had good luck using Gel Gloss, a cleaner/polisher

Try using a rag with WD-40. Just make sure and wash well after you get the spots off. Also works well on the black streaks on the sides of our slides.

I would only use something that is safe for use on paint. I also use denatured alcohol for stuff like this. It's used to clean plastic so it's safe for paint. I would however put a good coat of wax on the area.
