We've used aluma brite on our aluminum dump trailer. If you dont do it right, it will really make it look nasty. Our one trailer looks like it has salt spray on it all the time, because the hired guy messed up when using the alumabrite.
Muriatic Acid works really well, but you have to dilute it. In pure strength, it will eat the aluminum pretty quick. Ive used it in engines where Ive had pistons melted to the cylinder walls. The acid eats it away pretty quick. I would dilute it to 25% acid to 75% water to try it first. IF you need it stronger, mix it up a little stronger. Also, I wouldnt spray it on, as it could streak. I would use a rag, but thats me. You can get muriatic acid at the hardware store. Thats where I get mine from. Its like $8-10 a gallon.
