6 Tips for Awning Care
1. Inspect your awning regularly.
2. Clean the fabric after every trip.
Clean fabric is happy fabric. If you do find dirt or mildew on your awning, use a soft-bristled brush and warm, soapy water to gently clean the fabric. Avoid harsh scrubbing and chemicals, as these can damage the fabric and decrease its lifespan.
3. Put it away when not in use.
4. Do not leave the awning unattended.
5. Research your fabric.
To properly care for your RV awning, you need to know what type of fabric you have and how to treat it. Acrylic awnings repel water, but they are not waterproof. Vinyl awnings are waterproof but are more prone to gathering mildew.
6. Invest in a quality awning.
The most important thing that enables you to extend the life of your rv awning is the quality of the awning fabric. Cheaper is not always better. To ensure an awning of good quality, find a reputable RV awning company you can trust. Once you invest in a quality awning, take time to properly care for it.
