I looked into the Zep Mildew remover and it has bleach in it, I have come across the Totally Awesome product before but was hesitant to use since it did not mention removing mildew. It would be nice to be able to spray something on and roll it up and wash it off rather than fighting the ladder and scrubbing method when you do not have that much room to do it in.

I use the bleach / water solution also. Everything you read will tell you not to use the bleach, but q-tips are also not to be used for cleaning your ears (go figure). I also use the same solution to clean the vinyl siding on my house - nothing beats it!

My wife's grand-father has been camping for 40+ years, and has always used the bleach / water solution. In reading your original post, I was imagining him as being the one who told you about it to begin with. Sounds like him!!

I read here somewhere that you should mix 1/4 cup bleach and 1/4 cup dish soap in a 5 gallon bucket of water , put in on, roll it up for about 1 hour then rinse off. Haven't tried it yet, but next weekend I am going to give it a try. I might throw in some awning cleaner I bought last year(which I wasn't happy with the results) as good measure.

This trick has always worked for me. I have not tied it on the new one yet. But I to have tried allot of those spray cleaners and had no luck. I am glad this trick has helped people.

I just got back from my first trip out and used the bleach/ water solution to clean my awning. Applied it with a soft brush and rolled it up for about 2 hours. Unrolled it and hosed it off, it looks great except for some red spots that won't go away no matter what I do. Anybody else have the dreaded "red" spots and what did you do. Also did my slide covers. Unfortunately I had a blue T-shirt on which is now spotted nicely.

How exactly do you guys go about applying the solution (whichever you use)? Do you get up on the roof and spray it on, or spray it from the bottom as you roll it up?

I would use a cheap pump garden sprayer.

That is how I apply my solution with a garden pump sprayer. Do the awning when you know you wanna wash the whole camper.
