I clean ours with car wash soap and mix in a quarter cup of bleach. It cleans it and kills all mildew. Much cheaper than buying commercial made products. Wear old clothes or don't let the bleach spill on you as it will spot your clothes.
I added this to the list, because after we purchased our Camper we brought out the awning to clean. I tried a mixture of Water/Bleach/Detergent. Maybe I didn't have the right mixture or something, but It didn't get the awning as clean as I wanted it. I brushed it on with a soft brush and then rolled it up for 15 min, then unrolled and sprayed off..

I was hoping that a more "Commercial" product would clean it better.. then after I can just maintain with household stuff.

But maybe I should try your mixture.

Progressive industries surge guard.
Digital volt ohm meter.
I haven't heard of that before.. I'll add it to the list and do some research on it.

Have you had a case yet where that has saved your camper?

And also a good idea on the Digital volt ohm meter. I believe I have one in the garage. But if not, its a good idea to pick one up.
