Using old clothes (that you can throw away); heavy rubber gloves and a full face splash shield (like the guys who use grinders wear) and a hat you don't care about; put straight bleach on a swifter pad.

Blot it over the brown spot and rub it in. Let dry and repeat until the spot is gone. Work your way from the camper side to the roller.

Flush WELL with water after you are satisfied with the results.

Go to the Dollar Store and by a spray bottle of Awecome. It works great on the awning black marks. I seen the guys in Casa Grande AZ using it on their awnings and it work great. I bought a bottle while out there but just got home to Mi yesterday and haven't cleaned mine yet, but I know it works, Try it, it's cheep and it works.

A web search did not turn up this spray.

I also use a mixture og bleach and water. Apply and roll up the awning for 15min then rinse

bsandra101, we have exactly the same problem on the underside of our Dometic awning. We purchased a pre-owned 2010 Roo 23SS last month and found those brown spots after opening the awning on Easter weekend to clean it up for the camping season.

The water/soap/bleach mixture that Domnetic recommends worked well for the dirt and black marks (not sure if there was any mold or mildew) but we have the same brown spots/stains, some as large as 2-3" in diameter. We are wondering if it might have come from leaves that the previous owner may have trapped in the awning when rolling it up.

Please post if you are able to find something that gets rid of the spots.

We will probably try Herk's suggestion to CAREFULLY dab with pure bleach. Back when my brother-in-law sold Amway, they had a product that worked fantastic on stains on our kitchen countertop but unfortunately we don't have any left.
