I would be worried the window would pop open while traveling.

Those were both after pictures. I pushed the latch arm over to show how it will now clear the L plastic bracket without twisting & bending the latch arm to get it to release. I was more afraid of breaking the arm. While not spring loaded, the arm tends to push into the latch bracket.

pbandrb, that looks great. I desperately need to clean ours. What color is the top of your awning? Ours is black and I fear getting the bleach water on it? Thanks. Jay

Mostly keep buying stuff for the TT.
Ordered a Camco jack stand, traffic cone style, to lessen my wood block stack. Lotsa cranking on the manual jack. Might end up with an electric jack by the time summer ends
Ordered a deluxe 20 foot sewer kit with 2 swivel ended 10' tubes, 4 end caps, a clear 6" extension for the TT end and a clear right angle dump connector. Thicker tubing, too. So now we not only have redneck television (campfire), we can watch our crap flow!

If using bleach on the awning be sure to rinse off really good. The bleach can disintegrate the threads on the awning. For that reason some people are rightfully scared of using bleach.

Well just got done installing my poles from the 5er to the new Concord, i polished them up again and put them on, kudos to OC. I bought these in fact 2 sets about 4 years ago. They are still like new, polished aluminium held up well, might get them power coated black in winter, but will make my mind up later. A BIG THANK-YOU to him for selling such a quality product. Oh yes I sold the other set in an hour to our member Tankmaster. They do match the Concord sign in the middle.Click image for larger version

Do not use bleach, it is not gentil on that fabric or the stitching. There is a great non bleach mildew remover and cleaner. It is made by CRC. I have been using it for years, will take anything off and clean like new, and you don't have to worry about over spill on your decals and walls, i used bleach, got it on the decals and it just ruined them, about 100.00 later I replaced the bad ones. Hope that helps

Also do not use Simple Green. I understand that eats the threads also!

Mine is a fade transition from light to dark. The bleach did not seem to matter and I saw some other videos that showed people doing this method on dark vinyl awnings so I felt comfortable doing it

I see now the last foot on top does not get cleaned with this method.

I've heard the awesome is the best. Purple power did pretty well for me in the past.

Here it is you can buy it at Ace or CVS, Food lion by me, by you might be different it's CRL, not CRC miskeyed. Alot of people say awesome, that's worst then bleach on vinel and cotton threads, if you get it on a decal by a drip and don't know it you will have streak you can not remove when it dries, been there and done that also. CHEAPER is not always better IMO only.Click image for larger version

The pictures a post above, Amazon has it also or they used to, you will be surprised, it a thick foam, you can spay over your head it will stay there, this stuff is safe and the best cleaner for stains and mildew I have found, worth a try you won't be sorry. Easy on easy off.
