And another awning question, this camper has an electric awning, is there anything I need to do to secure or support awning when extended that I may not know about??

I've tried all these methods, and none have worked for me. Keep in mind that I was dealing with very stubborn stains from a black walnut tree. The one thing that finally worked for me was the green bottle of Clorox Clean-Up Cleaner+Bleach. I highly recommend this. Just wet the surface, spray on, and lightly scrub with a soft to medium bristle brush, then hose off. Make sure to wear clothing that you don't care about, and also wear eye protection. Good luck!

Best we've found, I think it was at Home Depot. Clorox Professional Mold and Mildew Remover.

I used that same recipe. Worked great. I applied it with a $6 Walmart weed sprayer. The kind you pump up. Worked really well.

Aerospace 303 ?

Question re: Aerospace 303, which version do you all use, looking at Amazon there are several "models" of it. Thanks for the info

Hi All,

We just got back from our first outing this year to First Landing State Park just above Virginia Beach. It's a really nice State Park with private dune side sites. Our new pup is a natural beach bum and got wetter than we did.

For the most part, it was far too windy for the awning to be out but when it did go out, oh my, what mildew. This is not my first encounter with the dreaded stuff so I do have a preferred method of fighting it once and for all. Since the stuff is a living organism it puts out roots that penetrate the material. Most bleach and soap treatments are but temporary as they do not kill the roots and that is why it is likely to recur. My solution is Concrobium https://www.concrobium.com. It both kills the roots of the mold or mildew and lays down a barrier to prevent future spores from taking root thus making it a one time application. I have used it on many delicate surfaces without ever doing damage and will use it on my awning tomorrow without worries.

That's just my experience, your's may be different. Good luck with the clean up.

I picked up some Mold Armor from walmart, havent had time to use it on camper yet but hit a few spots of mildew with it in my outbuilding and it seems to work really well. Mildew was gone within minutes.
