I found it cheapest at Menards...it was back towards their paint section. I believe Lowes and Home Depot also carry it.

You may want to check if there is a leak in your awning. We don't use the awning a ton, but when we would open it, it would always be wet, and we were having mildew issues. We are parked level when we aren't using it, so we couldn't figure it out. Then one day we have the awning extended and it started to rain. And there was a drip that appeared just above the door. Where the awning attaches to the rv, there was a spot where water was getting through. So that was the issue, when it was rolled up in storage, every time it rained it would let water in and you know the rest, mildew. So I would check that out. Otherwise, I have found a spray at Walmart, for awnings, and it is some combo of vinegar and other stuff. It smells like vinegar anyway. You spray it and give it a scrub, and it comes right off. Then you spray it again and let it dry, and it is supposed to prevent. We haven't had an issue since. Off the top of my head I don't remember what its called, but it was in a white spray bottle (similar in size and shape to Windex)

I've posted this before... I have a lot of luck using JOMAX on my awnings.
Seems to keep the mold away for a good while.

I recently used Wet & Forget on my garage roof and I'm impressed with the results.
Not sure how it will do on the awnings but I'm willing to try it based uopn the garage roof.

Beware, I don't think it will "Clean" as well due to your awning being rolled up, however, it should still be a good prevention for mold and mildew.

Yep, roger that.

I should have been a little more clear.
I actually meant, spraying on after the awning is cleaned (and letting dry) to prevent mold/mildew.

The Wet & Forget is designed to 'stick around' after spraying to clean gradually during each rainfall or similar. The instructions say something like.. it could take several months to see results. That was the case with my garage roof but it has kept the mold off too which is why I thought about trying it on the awning.

Thanks!
