Rinsed and it was good to go.
What do you use to clean the rubber roof with?

I used Dicor Rubber Roof Cleaner. My trailer was used when I bought it and roof had never been done. It cleaned the roof well but made a mess of the sides when the grime ran off. Have someone on the ground with a hose to rinse at the same time you are rinsing with another hose. There is a video on utube on how to clean it. For the aluminum sides I cleaned with Awesome cleaner from the Dollar store. Again, do small sections and rinse well. I would be wary of getting it on decals. Then I spray waxed with Meguires Detailer. Sides then looked new.

Awning Cleaning best way

For years, I have been cleaning my awnings using a common, safe, household chemical - baking soda. I make a slurry ( a little water, and more baking soda than will dissolve). I brush this on using a fiber brush on a pole (might need a little bit of effort for stubborn spots) on a long enough pole. Don't worry about getting it on you - won't hurt anything, but it cuts the grime & mold on the awning. Rinse off with water. That's all. I try to grab the old "air freshener" the wife discards from the frig - works fine for cleaning.

Re roof: I was just at camping world and suprisingly the service fellow told me to clean my roof with DAWN dish soap. (The stuff they clean birds with after an oil spill ). He said that it contains no petroleum and works better than anything they sell.

Agree with others that AWESOME (from Dollar General) is quick and easy.

The process I use is to dilute the concentrated Awesome, spray it on the underside (make sure to wear safety goggles and old clothes), climb on top of my camper and spray it on the topside of the awning, roll up and let it sit for 30 minutes.

Unroll the awning and wipe off with a mop and water. I used a ladder and one of those green scouring pads for the tough areas like this corner. Rinse top and bottom with a hose when done cleaning.

Let dry and roll up the awning.

Look like Awesome works great !!!
I cleaned one a couple of years back with soap/water & a little bleach,,,
Awning came clean,,, then I had to re-wax that whole side of the trailer !!!










Speaking of awnings,,, who ever decided black was good idea on the 2013 Sunseeker should set under one with bright sun light & 80 degree temps !!!
You can fell the heat radiating from it !!!
