cleaner

Last year somebody had a recipe for cleaning awnings that worked wonders. I believe it involved white vinegar and maybe liquid dish detergent. Ring a bell to anybody? thanx

To answer your question, I think you are referring to this recipe: 1/2 cup of bleach, 1/4 cup white vinegar, and 1/4 cup hot water in a spray bottle.

But, like Itsthetwoofus, I find that LA's Totally Awesome cleaner works great on the awning!

It really works well. 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 awning and let it sit for 30 minutes. Unroll the awning and lightly scrub or wipe off with a mop and water. Rinse top and bottom of the awning with a hose when done cleaning. Let dry.

We have used the Awesome before.. but never have I thought of rolling up the awning! We went from a manual awning, that we could unhook the legs from the camper and lay them underneath the camper, in order to reach the upper part of the awning to get clean. But struggled with cleaning the new electric awning-- duh! We will totally try this first time we clean the awning this season!

Thank you!!

We do similar to Triguy, except with purple power. Usually only wait 15 minutes and the only thing I've ever had to scrub is the top if some sap got on it or something.

I have always used water...1/4 th part bleach and small amount of dish soap to help it stick to the awning....spray it on with a spray bottle...roll it up for about 30 minutes....unroll and rinse off. Works all the time.

What is the best way to get bugs off the front of your 5th wheel?
