You do know that bleach is an oxidizer? Even diluted - it can harm your finishes. So can phosphates (in some home detergents). The bleach can rinse off onto your awning and slide toppers and dissolve the stitching.
It's not worth the short-cut of using bleach compared to the negatives.
Want an easy way to clean - pay attention to your water PH. A range of 5 - 7 is ideal anything above or below can cause problems over the long range.
Washing can be made easier using a water softener or even better RO water but that's getting on expensive side. Basically the less impurities in the water, the better job water alone will do with cleaning.
