Cleaning Roof, Awning and Tent Ends

What do you use, besides the products available at Camping World. A friend suggested Murphy's oil soap for roof and Simple Green for awning, would that also be good on the tents. If you like the purpose made products let me know that too. Also if there's a link to a thread that's already started.
Thanks

I bought the cleaners for the roof and awning from CW but I had a hard time finding the tent cleaners there.
as per the Jayco manual:
For more stubborn stains, dirt, etc., the tent fabric manufacturer recommends:
 OxiClean®
 Fantastick® (must state it can be used on vinyl)
 Star Brite® Vinyl Cleaner / Shampoo, #80216
 Meguiar’s® 57 Vinyl & Rubber Cleaner / Conditioner, #5716
 Marine Specialties Group® Vinyl Finish Vinyl Cleaner #990917
 West Marine® Vinyl Cleaner, #2669323

So I went to West Marine. They have the Meguires 57 as well as the Vinyl cleaner. I purchased these instead:
http://www.westmarine.com/battery-pa...22oz--15003742
http://www.westmarine.com/battery-pa...t-pt--15023799

Personally I would not use Simple green for the awning and especially not for the tent.

Clear gel hand sanitizer works awesome on tree sap and pine pitch on awnings and tent ends. Plop a dab on the pitch, let it sit a minute or 2 and scrape the pitch right off with your fingernail.

I use PURPLE POWER. Spray it on, lightly brush any heavily soilded areas and rinse.
The product is friendly to the environment, inexpensive and is avaliable at all auto parts stores, Dollar general.... etc.

Use Purple Power with caution as it will remove the color from your decals. I used it on my rig once to clean the black streaks and ended up with white streaks down the decals where it actually stripped the color from them. Make sure its well diluted.

I've always used it full strength. Best stuff I found for removing the black stains, mold & mildew. It does need to be rinsed ASAP but It didn't effect the decals on my 1006. The power washer did though ....LOL.
I intend on replacing the decals anyways.....

Popup gizmos keep sap off the top of my bunk ends. I use Woolite on the sides of the bunk ends. For the roof I use Murphy's Oil Soap , got that idea from an RV magazine
