Soft scrub works good but keep it away from the sides of your rig, you will get clean streaks, Thanks for reminding me about that I have to go to the storage lot and pull mine down and dry it off from the last rain.

In my opinion, scrubbing the inside of the awning is the worst maintainance job on the RV.
Twice a year, I use some bleach and Greased Lightening in a bucket of water and keep scrubbing with a stiff brush til it's off. There's no way you can keep that stuff from dripping back on you and spotting your clothes (bleach). I tried the suggestion of rolling it up with cleaner and bleach on it but I found it just as moldy when it came down and still had to scrub it.
Again, I hate it.

Try a mild bleach/water solution. Scrub lightly, roll it up wet, leave it sit a while (don't let it dry though) unroll it, you may have to scrub it a little again. Rinse and let dry!
A couple of hints, I put bleach in one of those mixers that attach to your hose (like for lawn fertilizer, window cleaner, etc) this make it easy to mix and just spray with the hose. Also get a long handle scrub brush-makes it a lot easier to reach.

There are all kinds of products that remove mold from awnings. I wouldn't use soft scrub as that'd be a horrible job. Soft Scrub is a great product, but it'd take forever to Soft Scrub a 15'x10' awning. There's not enough time in the day. I don't remember the name, but I bought my RV specific awning cleaner at WalMart and it did a great job. I'm sure Camping World, etc has a variety of products to choose from.
The best solution I've found to stop getting moldy awnings is inside storage. It's no longer an issue for me. If you look around, you might find something comparable to what you're paying (if you're renting storage) for outside storage.

I use a mold/mildew remover from Home Depot that's pretty cheap and smell like it's about 99% bleach. I mix it to the specs on the label, put it in my tank sprayer and hose 'er down. I keep the surfaces wet for a 1/2 hour (or one long neck) and use my shop push broom to lightly scrub the surface. Works well but remember, old clothes, EYE PROTECTION and just look at the shine on that push broom.

We bought a used camper last year and it had been stored for 4years. When we opened the awning it was nothing but mold. I later found out he rolled it up wet and left it. I bought the Lysol mold and mildew cleaner for bathrooms and it worked like a charm. We used a long brush that helped also. When we got through it looked like a brand new awning.
