Campers Howdie from Michigan
Hello everyone, and thanks for letting me join.
I'm new to the world of Pop Ups, but not to camping. A week ago I became the 3rd owner of a 2003 Rockwood and am excited to learn all about it.
Im taking it to the dealership, where the original owner purchased it, to have it checked over and a crash course on operation and maintenance. The dealership doesn't clean the canvas (inside or out) so im looking for help with what the preferred cleaner is for vinyl & canvas are and what's the preferred water repellant used on the canvas & how often?
Also, the original owner had the pop up parked under a pine tree when it was up for sale, the family I bought it from never tried to remove the pine sap from the sleeper ends of the canvas, sure could use some suggestions as to what's a good way to clean it off and if I will need to put water repellant on the areas I clean.
I have a camping trip planned to the Petosky, MI area with a daughter & her family in late August, so I have lots of time to clean & practice setting up and putting down. Any tips or hints will be gratefully appreciated.
Thanks much and Happy Camping,
