Cleaning??

Cleaning the tent on my Hw296 next weekend it's a 2015. What is needed to clean the tents before I add my gizmos?

I always just used a vinyl cleaner and a soft brush then rinsed them off and let them dry.

I've always had good luck with OxyClean and then dry and use a UV sun blocking type product such as Aerospace 303, Turtle Wax UV protectant.

Oxy is what I use, sometimes I might have a tuff spot, and will use mean green on a soft towel and spot clean the area. Since I have been using the gizmos no tuff spots. Best invest ever.

I think that would be a bit harsh IMHO. Vinyl uses plasticizers to keep the vinyl pliable, very harsh cleaners, yes will clean it fast but it comes at a cost. You start stripping away the plasticizers and the vinyl becomes brittle over time.

On to another note, I meant to post this on a separate thread but what the hey. Wash Wax All........has got to be the most amazing thing I have ever used.......it cleaned my vinyl and left it supple with a soft sheen to it once buffed out. Their website has a starter kit for about 30 dollars that gives you everything you need. This truly does it all.

I've had good luck with mixing up some Oxyclean in a spray bottle, dampening a clean towel, and scrubbing. Might have to hit tough spots with direct spray to let it sit for a minute. Works on 99% of the junk I pick up camping under a thick canopy of trees.

Keeping the canvas clean was my main reason for getting PUGS. Since I've put them on, had zero issues.

Anyone have a cleaning tip for the canvas window zips on the sides of the bunk ends(canvas in both sides, not vinyl)? We have a palm size spot and I put a mold and mildew remover on it but it didn't really help and seemed to have removed waterproofing. Click image for larger version

Try Oxi-Clean and you should reapply waterproofing at least once a year anyway just for good measures.
