Awnings and Exterior

Hi, Im a new guy here. Just got a 1974 31 Excella 500. Now I am trying to get it into shape. At the moment, I have 2 questions.

1)The underside of the awning is very dirty black streaks running length-wise. I dont want to use anything on it that will harm it. What have you used with success?

2)Of course, the exterior is in great need of a real polish job. Until I can do this, is there anything else that will help the looks any kind of cleaner, some kind of quickie polish job, etc?

Thanks for your help

Welcome to the Forum!

If you have a Zip-Dee awning, call them at 800-338-2378 and ask them for their awning cleaner. It is the best stuff for the fabrics that they use. Be sure to tell them what year you have.

OOPS! Wrong #

The # for Zip-Dee is 1-800-338-2378. The above # is for Xantrex. Sorry !
