Awning stitching question.....

While cleaning the Carefree awning on our trailer I noticed that the stitching along the top edge was gone for about a 2 foot stretch near the center of the awning. Does it pay to attempt to re-stitch this or will awning repair tape over the stitching be sufficient?
Opinions please.

I've seen that too. It's just stitching on the edge. It's not joining any pieces together. I just pulled up the loose stuff and put a couple drops of super glue on it to hold it in place. I have had other stitching issues with outdoor camping gear that have been supurbly handled with a darning needle and some 6# Fireline( kevlar fishing line). It's rotproof and strong like you won't believe. If you use this stuff, either melt the end or a drop of super glue when you close the stitch

How do you clean your awning? I am not sure what to use to clean it. Just soap and water???

I use a mild soap/water (no bleach) with a long handled soft bristle brush. When the awning is extra dirty (mildew, etc.) I will apply some Simple Green, close the awning, then re-open the awning about 10 minutes later and wash with mild soap.
