G'morning, Phrogs.

BD, nice pictures...the rig looks good, and the camping spot looks ideal.

More grass cutting for this Phrog today. I swear, condo living is looking more and more appealing the older I get. Split our time between a condo and an RV? No home repairs and no yard work? Hmmmm...where's the downside?

Looks good except right at the camper in the white that the the dumbo's that decided to put white in that area. It still has a shadow of discoloring that evidently will not come out. Been this way on all our awnings since 1976. One would think the awning mfgrs don't have a clue as to this problem or they would change. DUMB DESIGN!

Anyway, awning is drying and I'll stow it before the rains come this afternoon. Time to get out the mower and start mowing the 1.48 acres of weeds and the 20 sq. ft of grass. Oh and break up some rocks with the new blades.
OC how do you think boat vinyl cleaner would work for the awning cleaning you described above? I need to do the same thing. Don't have any Awesome or SuperClean.

Never tried boat vinyl cleaner. I would try it on a small area and see. If it works, post the name. SC @ Walmart, Awesome @ Dollar General $1 bottle.

What I used worked on the surface, but there is still a shadow that seems to be imbedded in the material.

Turbs, Did you make it to the U.P.? I've lurking your post to see if you made it this far. We just spent 6 nites at our family cottage and now we're home for a day to do laundry. Tomorrow we head to Copper Harbor for a couple of days. Was checking if you were still north bound but I guess not.
