What to use to clean the bunk ends

i wouldn't want to use anything like bleach to clean off the exterior tent bunk ends on my roo. But they are starting to get dirty and its almost that time of the yr to pack it up for the winter. Wanted to get them nice and clean but not sure what to use to get them nice and clean. Any help would be great.

After you clean them, get a set of PUGs. They'll keep the canvas from getting dirty. My 10 year old Roo 23SS tent ends still looked almost new when I sold it because I always used the PUGs.

I was going to try my upholstery shampooer, from my carpet shampooer. The cloth sides get stained. I havenít tried it yet. I used to use it on the mattresses, especially with young kids. I wouldnít use anything but mild soap.

Vinyl bunk ends can be cleaned with Oxyclean or Spray Nine. If you have any canvas, with mildew, it can be cleaned with the mixture on the attached pic. Click image for larger version

I think the biggest thing with the fabric sides is getting it rinsed completely. I laid the panel down on a plastic garbage bag, with the mattress pulled out, and wiped it down with a mild solution and a rag. I zipped it up, and worked on the inside, letting it soak for a half hour. Then I put towels down inside and wiped it down with plain warm water. I hosed off the outside til their was no soapy water left. The panels are still faintly stained, but you can barely see it. I will try again at the end of the season, and then put fabric protector on them.

Mild soap with Oxyclean works wonders! and do yourself a favor and get one of the very soft brushes that you can hook up to a garden hose. put an on/off valve on it and put your cleaning solution in a bucket. give everything a light scrub and rinse with fresh water from the hose. kept our popup looking great and it reduces your time on a ladder too!

Custom sized solar blankets for popup and hybrid tent ends.
Google them because they are the #1 Hybrid mod. Close to 100% customer satisfaction level and their customer service is super.
Not only do they help with temperature regulation but they help reduce condensation, keep the canvas clean and they darken the tents for naps and late risers.
