I really try not to put mine away wet. Any sign of rain in the forecast,it gets rolled up. Also roll up the night before we are heading home. This way there is no dew on it in the morning when we start closing down.

Either way, a little"TileX" and your good to go. Not a big job at all. If you keep up with it, you won't even have to scrub. A little spray, roll it up for a bit, hose it off and let it dry.

So much for LAs Totally Awesome. Found some at the local Family Dollar. Sprayed it on, rolled it up, and waited 30 minutes. Did nothing. Repeated the entire process. Again, nothing. I emailed the manufacturer, who has other products, for advice or recommendations. No answer yet. Tomorrow I will try Tilex.

We mix bleach and simple green with water in one of those pump garden sprayers - wet awning with water and spray liberally - roll it shut and we leave it until we are done washing the camper - then open it and hose it off - there may be a few minor spots that might need a light scrub with the brush but usually not...easy peasy 😉

Bleach is really the key component in all of this. If it is in whatever you're using, it should come clean.

Did you then use a soft brush to lossen up the dirt, or whatever. What procedure did you employ along with coating the vinyl with Awesome for 30 minutes.

Yes...we used a brush to really scrub it down. It isn't 100% clean but oh so much better than it was.

Hmmm... I use my awning to stand outside when it's raining and I assume many others do. Seems like you're losing one of the bigger reasons to have one in the first place.

I do leave it open in if it's not forecast to rain too bad (And pitched to one side for sure) and I'm going to be there for nicer weather. If I see rain in the forecast and no real sign of it drying out. I'll put it away as well as our mat.

When I first started out camping and I had a pop up. I couldn't figure out why everyone pitched their awnings to one side. I figured the pitch outward was enough. Big mistake! Rained overnight and woke up to an inverted giant zit! Luckily it didn't ruin the awning. My wife and I pushed up on it and got all the water off. Lesson learned.
