I bought a used 2006 Cub 235 a year ago. Since then I have been tryint to figure out how to clean the inside of the awning since it was filthy. I could not do it at home since my driveway is next to the house, nor do I camp where there is water hookups. This memorial day while camping I decided to try something; I used a Mr clean magic eraser, a bucket of rinse water and after about a forty-five minutes some liquid refreshment, the awning looks like new.

Is that the liquid refreshment talking? If not, come to the campground I'm at now and do mine. I never have been able to get mine to look like new again, no matter what I've tried to use.

I can vouch for the magic erasers, they work great!
Can't comment on the liquid refreshments, although those also always work great too!

I too have used the magic eraser but my awning never ends up looking like new. Granted, there is significant improvement, but never looking like new. If Pepsi is considered liquid refreshment then I've tried that too.

Maybe "looks like new", was an overstatement. But it is clean.

Try useing i cup of bleach to a 5 gallon bucket and 1 cup of dish washer detergent, works like a charm. You can reduce that if you dont have a really big and dirty job, Also is good for the Mildew?

jerr529, that sounds like a plan I haven't tried yet. Will give it a shot when we get home from this camping trip.

We do the Dawn/bleach combo, scrub it on both sides, then soak it as much as possible and roll it up. I let it sit while I'm washing the rest of the camper, and it usually comes up pretty clean. I do like your magic eraser trick, though, as there are a couple of small spots I'm having trouble getting rid of... will definitely try it.

Will have to give that a go. I have never had good luck with the scrub brush, but never thought of the magic eraser..

Thanks for the tip!!
