Canopy/Mold

What has everyone found to be the best solution to clean the mold off of the canopy.

Thanks

Hi Mokid

If you have a vinyl anwing, we do, we use a bleach and water mixture. I have a long car wash brush on a pole. The Sunchaser series by Dometic I do belive are the vinyl ones.

On the top open surface of the awning when it is out, Rinse with water, then apply bleach/water mix with long car brush. Coat the entire top side.

Roll it up. Sit wait, have a cool one. Come back about 5 to 10 minutes later. Unroll and then a light scrub wiht beach again if needed, and then rinse both top and bottom. It is amazing how clean it comes with so litte work.

Here is the instructions from Dometic. http://www2.dometicusa.com/pdf/3108608.021.pdf

A good rinse is needed to get the chlorine off. And I aslo 303 UV spray the outside exposed part that is in the weather all the time when rolled up. With special attention to the sewing threads up by the roof line as when they sun rot the whole thing can come off the trailer. I have not had one do that yet, 303 must be working, but have had others not treat their awning and over time, the sun kills the thing.

Hope this helps

John

If you have a acrylic type material do not use the bleach.

Canopy/Mold

Thanks John for the info. My Canopy is a Sunchaser Dometic so I used the bleach/soap combination and was very happy with the results.

Rich, I bought some Awesome and used it on the sides of the trailer today and was really impressed. It looks like a new trailer.

Thanks guys for all of the help.
