Default Thanks for the UTube A&E awning fabric replacement.

Treeclimber, Thanks for posting about the fabric replacement on an awning. Can't believe they chose an all white fabric. When I had the awning off the RV I would have done some magic sponge cleaning. I always take and clean realy good when something is removed for repairs. OCD comes in handy.

Usagi, truth be told... Before installing, I laid the new awning out in the sun which helps to get the shipping wrinkles out. Here in SW FL we're in the 90's, so plenty of sun.
I applied 303 Protectant to one side, let it dry. Next day turned it over and did that side. I've used this product for years in the marine industry. One of the best for UV protection. Helps to keep the awning clean too. Later this winter, when I clean and seal the roof, I'll apply the sealant on the exposed area of the rolled up awning also.

Default I like your thinking.

On our new to us 1996 26 Ft. Classic we gave it a deluxe bath when we got it home. I used son of a gun on the awning. Agree that any protectant keeps it so much cleaner. I used 303 protectant on the body of the RV. Learned my lesson about setting the bottle of 303 on the back bumper and then lowering the HiLo. I might make a mistake once and try not to repeat it. We always get compliments on how clean our awning is. What color is your new awning?

sam, I personally like all white, but they're hard to come by at 17'-2'' so mine has a bit of camel at the outer end. White MAKES me keep it clean, and reminds me to do the minor maintenance required for the awning.
That video sure make it less complicated.
