ArmorAll on slide topper fabric?

Anyone tried this?? I used 303 last time, but being water based it washes right off in the first rainstorm (I'd guess, anyhow).

Carefree says just wash with plain water every so often. BUT having one down to repair, the exposed stitching was all rotted; fabric itself was OK.

BTW, the stitching that rotted was right up where the fabric attaches to the coach. The wind had worked on it so hard that only the last 8 inches or so on each end was still attached to the rail; leaving rain to form a giant pool of water in the center of the fabric.

Instead of re-stitching, we have used super glue all along the entire 16 feet of the canvas. Supposedly that will hold better than stitching. Time will tell if this is a good plan or a stupid idea.

Boowho??

Try this on the stitching, bow string wax. Use it also on your blind string, to help lube and protect.

ArmorAll products contain petrolium distillates that aren't good for much of anything. Did you use the 303 for fabric?

Can't remember which type of 303 I used. But it does wash off pretty easily, I'm told.

Boowho??

When I bought my first rig the service tech. said to take RV Goop and put it on all the stitching. Did that and after 7 years the stitching was as good as new.

303 when used on clear plastic lens or sky lights will last up to 3 to 5 weeks. Wipe completely dry it does leave a thin film. Protects Vinyl, Rubber, Plastic, Leather, Fiberglass, Carbon fiber and Matt finishes. Later RJD

The last bottle of AmorAll I read had petroleum distillates on the content list on the back.
