Cleaning tent ends

How do you clean the fabric on your bunk ends and how often do you clean them?

I have cleaned ours twice in two years. I use Dawn dish soap and plain water, along with a long handled carwash brush.

when you cleaned them did you have them set up fully or did you leave the support poles down and the canvas laying flat?

When they need cleaning I set the tenting up and wash with a long handled brush using the car wash soap that I use on the rest of the TT. Using the Popup Gizmos keeps them cleaner so I don't wash them off after every outing. I let them dry prior to folding them.

I cleaned mine yesterday using the exact same method as RedHorse1. However I later referenced the Jayco owner's manual to see a specific warning to avoid using brushes when cleaning the canvas. I cannot see that my method caused any damage, but I'll be using a sponge in the future. I also dried the canvas with a chamois which helped to get all the water out of the lower spots in the roof.

Hope that helps.

Hey Roll,
I guess I should read my owners manual :dunno:
The top side of my tent seems to be a vinyl of some kind so I doubt the brush will do any harm (it's pretty soft), the fabric on the sides however might loose some of their "water proofness" due to using a brush.
