Did you try the Sunbrella website to see what they suggest? I have never treated mine with anything except washing it once a year. If it is a light rain nothing comes through it but in a heavy rain there is a light mist once in a while. I think that is the nature of the fabric.
Don't you think that the application something like that will make it attract and hold more dirt?

Any camping place has the stuff. I have seen it in 1 gallon containers, you can spray it on with a pump sprayer same as used for yard weed control, or use a wagner power sprayer. Just use a mask and position your self up wind

hi donna...

is it a zipdee? z-d explains how to clean and maintain the awning fabrics on their website.

as bigAL suggests, water repellants are NOT to be used on the acrylic awning fabrics...

the fabric should be cleaned occasionally with mild soap(no bleach, solvents, citrus cleaners) and water and left to dry.

pollen, dust and organic matter (leaves, pine needles, bugs) on the fabric can eventually stain or feed mold growth.

shaking, hosing with water or cleaning occasionally nix-z that...

IF the fabric is clean but really really dry, rain will sieve through during the first few minutes,

but as the acrylic fibers expand and PLUMP up, the total water repellant nature is restored...

treating the fabric with spray on repellants reduces fiber swelling and is a NEGATIVE.

so, clean, dry, roll'em up, then enjoy as needed!

all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.
