Just bought house with peeling solid stain, best way to fix?

I just bought a house built in 1987 with cedar siding. It is a contemporary style home with a solid grey staing that is peeling.

1)What is the best way to prep this? I have been told I cant get the peeling stain off with a pressure washer on avery low setting? But I have also read this can damage the wood.

2)I want to apply semi solid or solid stain roughly the same color without it peeling in the future. I figured I will test a section with semi solid and see if it looks OK. If not I will go with a solid stain. What is my best choice(brand also Oil vs Acrylic)?

3)Should I use a mildew cleaner ahead of time?

Thanks in advance
