Caring for Your RV Awning

Posted On: June 18, 2013

Tips for keeping your awning in good condition

Caring for your RV Awning can be one of the most difficult tasks on your RV, but it’s also one of the greatest features your RV has.

No matter how many awnings your rig has, here are 4 Tips to keeping your Awning looking new and helping it last even longer.

TIP 1: Keep your Awning Clean and Debris Free

Sweep off leaves and tree debris before you roll it up. If you don’t, it will cause holes or tears.

TIP 2: Keep Mildew or Stains Cleaned Off

Use a soft brush and a mild detergent mixed with water. Softly brush the stained areas and rinse with clear water until the soapy mixture is off.

TIP 3: Use Weather Guard

The fabrics used on awnings are made from vinyl or acrylic. Some have weather guards made from aluminum or vinyl which protect your awning when you have it rolled up. You might have to re-apply weather guard or other protectants every few years. Check with the Bish’s RV Service or Parts Department about protectants for your Awning.

TIP 4: Never Use Abrasive Cleaners

Never use oil based or any kind of abrasive cleaners. There are awning cleaners on the market, which you can buy, that do work very well. Please be sure to read and follow the manufacturer directions.

If you have any questions about caring for your RV Awning, don’t hesitate to call your local Bish’s RV Service or Parts Department.
