The basic FR manual for our 2016 23WS told us how to do it. Learned on our first trip though that if you are packing up the TT tents wet or like we did, in a rainstorm, move the mattresses to the main cabin. They will get a little wet when water squeezes in during stowage. Manual did also advise of that but I missed it initially.

We cleaned a section of the tent end with oxi-clean and it looks like the finish came off as well. Did you come up with a fix for this?

TJ-Snuggles

Okay progress! I called TJ-Snuggles and they let me know not to use anything but soap and water to clean the canvas areas of the bunk ends! Use the Oxi-Clean on the vinyl parts of the bunks only! The tag they give you is a little misleading.

Any cleaner or anything else that takes the waterproofing out of the canvas parts of the tent ends needs to be rinsed thoroughly and dried. Then you are to use ScotchGard in the green can for canvas.

Cool mold/mildew

Hi, I have a 2013 Roo Hybrid and it also came with all the information on how to care for the bunk end vinyl. We have always made sure it was dry before putting it away and had it vented well when we slept. I do not cook inside the trailer as I don't want all the greasiness or the smell and we don't use the shower.
With that said, we have a major mold problem on the insides of the vinyl.
My screen covers are also vinyl with the cloth inside, and they also have mold. So how do you clean the inside when, there is no stiffness so you can't really put any pressure on it and it is on the top? Can we clean the insides now with it being cold?
Cleaning the outside was not too difficult but did notice mold in the hinges and the vinyl along the bottom. Most of it came off with a small brush/toothbrush.
What would you use to seal/waterproof the seams again?
We live in south central Ontario and have already had frost and wet snow with more flurries in the forecast, with temps ranging from 10- -1 C at night and daytime temps of 3-12 C

sorry, i always heard NOT to use Oxiclean on the canvas.
so don't know how to clean the yellow stains.

you could contact the canvas manufacturer, T.J. Snuggles in Indiana.

did the canvas paperwork say to use Oxiclean?

Well, never heard of that company but I would definitely contact them since they recommended Oxiclean.

Quick question... This talks about seasoning your tend ends when new and about how to clean mildew off the tent ends. I'd like to know should I be treating my tent ends with some kind of UV protectant to prevent drying/cracking, especially as my Roo ages. I have a 2007 and they look good so far, but I'd like them to stay that way!!

Thanks so much for the info and tip. I will look at my new owners packet. After a few years of looking at various travel trailers we decided on the 2019 232S Roo for our family and it has everything we wanted and were looking for. Canít wait to use it outside of my backyard! Weíve upgrade from a 1998 Prowler we picked up a few years ago as a tester before going all in on a new trailer. Iím really happy so far with what Iím seeing in the Rockwood Roo. Thanks again!!

Did you mean 233S or 235S? There is no 232S.

I used the green scotchguard this year but it doesnít seem to do much. Maybe I need to really soak it in, I used 2 cans for the 6 fabric ends.

I like to use 303 Fabric Guard as a water repellant applied about twice per year or after cleaning the canvas fabric tent ends Also 303 UV Protectant for the vinyl parts of the tent From Homedepot I like 2X Mold Armor to treat the tent if it gets any black mold
