Best awning maintenance ever

Arrived at our favorite campground yesterday but didn't open awning till today, and as expected the awning looks brand new!
The secret is Wet & Forget. I cleaned the awning 2 years ago and sprayed with W & F then. Today it is still pristine. I highly recommend this product.

Took a look on Amazon & it states only solid, no canvas use.... is your awning a single light color or a design? Any problems with weakening / leaking of the canvas? Would love to find something effective as mildew is a huge issue here in sunny FL when the canvas is rolled up

What material is your awning: Canvas or vinyl?

The awning isn't canvas I'm guessing it's a vinyl material. It is solid white underneath and the top is white and green in a stripe pattern. I can let you know what the make is when we return to campground. I've used this product for 3 years (re-treated last year) and haven't noticed any ill side effects.

The awning is a ' Sun Chaser' by Dometic.

We use this stuff on our roof tiles. Very happy with it. Never thought about putting it on the awning. Thanks for the tip. Keeping an awning in good shape here in humid, wet Florida is a challenge. We have bought it at BJ's and at Ace Hardware.
