PP not yet. I will try that in the spring. I have winterized and took it to storage. Will keep the additional ideas to try when I get a long weekend or in the spring. Keep the suggestions coming.

At this stage of the game I would be tempted to try a little CLR on a cotton ball in an inconspicuous place. Rinse well afterwards.

I can see that you have tried bleach but try it full strength. I had a similar problem with a trailer we owned a few years back. I used full strength bleach and left it rolled up for a while. After that it cleaned up quite easily.

CLR will give that a try.

Bleach full strength? Could that dry the vinyl?

The awning I used it on was the standard Dometic type. I continued to use it on my last trailer which I owned for 5 years and never noticed any deterioration of the awning. Most of the commercial cleaners for awnings use bleach in the formula anyhow. I, like you, had almost given up and felt I had little to lose. I too had tried several different products.

Bleach full strength will be my next method.

Thanks for the help, HC

It is a very strong mildew remover. I got it at the hardware store. See my post in another awning section about using the big armed bald man multisurface on both sides every inch after above product used.

No elbow grease just wear safety goggles if you are under it.

Maybe joemax this stuff works well on my vinyl siding. My wife used Clorox spray cleaner on our canopy and it got most of the crud off.
