Dometic awning turning pink???

Anyone experience this with the vinyl awning. Started showing up about a month ago and none of the cleaners/agents recommended for awnings will touch it. Predominately above the door and emanating from the seam where the awning attaches to the TT. Noticeable on the top side of the awning too but not nearly as manifest as the underside.

Many thx!

What color is your awining? Might be a problem associated with solvents used to clean the TT

Awning is predominately white - top side has some brown/beige stripes on all but the last two feet nearest the TT. Thought it might be residue from cleaning the roof so experimented with a small section of the awning. The rubber roof cleaner does not appear to affect the vinyl.

I raised this question at the dealer and went through every possible cleaner on shelf looking for something just for this problem. Nothing. It seems to be a chemical reaction with the glue and stitching. Thats the best answer I found. Noting seems to take it off that I have found. The travel trailer I just sold also had it in the awning and along the bottom of the trailer where ther was a rubber stip in a track that seperated the trailer top and the plastic/PVC skirt. It was on the rubber stip not in the cracks or seam. Right in the open. I just got a 2010 5ver and it too has a little pink in the awning.
