This is not a problem if I am using the trailer next time, but I have to remember to clean it off with some thinners on a rag if I am going to tow the caravan.
Be very careful of the paint work if useing thinners. I have seen a single drop eat through lacour and Base coat to the undercoat before my eyes. No hope of wiping it far too fast.
Brake cleaner or panel wipe is a safer option with today's water based paints.
