Glad that it worked so well for you.

Yep. 1/4 cup bleach to a gallon of water. Spray it on the awning and then retract. Let it sit retracted for 20 minutes, extend the awning and rinse both sides. Let dry.

I use a lysol cleaner without bleach and soft brush, roll up while wet. Rinse both sides after my nap.

Hey this prevents, cleans and restores?
Does that not count more than bleach?

Oxidizers are just that, useful if the job dictates

303 truly is a great product

I buy it by the gallon for numerous uses

The procedure I listed is the one in my Dometic Awning manual. That procedure has worked for over 15 years. I tend to follow OEM recommendations before I follow “expert” advice.

303 is a great product.
But I always wonder about all of the hype...

Maybe it's so good; that they should have named it "909"...

While bleach works sometimes, it does degrade the material it is used on as it is corrosive.303 is a great product. We buy it by the gallon.

Aerospace products are all pretty good for the buck

They got started years ago primarily in the marine industry and I used them on boat vinyl and other materials for many decades as have millions of other folks

There are a lot of similar products on the market for a lot more money

One of their newer ceramic type protectants leaves a shine that can't be matched without buffing other products, give some of their products a try

I use the 303 protectant on my tires on the Tuscany for the deep black color and it also is a UV blocker

Works great on the slide seals as well and the list goes on

I did some spring maintenance yesterday including cleaning and inspecting the roof and “303-ing” it. It’s no longer pristine but it looks good and seems intact. I think I’m getting too old for this sort of stuff though!
