Clean 2018 Curtains

After much camping in the last three years our off-white curtains are looking pretty dingy.

After reading through a bunch of posts (mostly about vintage trailers) it seems I should remove them, measure them, wash them and let them drip dry. Then reinstall.

As far as washing goes, just toss 'em in the machine on delicate using only soap or should we throw in some bleach/oxy clean?

ps. I THINK they were originally off-white...

Thanks,

Maybe measuring them isn't so important. I found this in the parts book:

5. 998144-11 Drape, RS side panel, 37 x 25.5
6. 998144-05 Drape, CS front panel, 27 x 29
7. 998144-07 Drape, RS front panel, 27 x 25.5
8. 998144-09 Drape, CS side panel, 37 x 25.5

Not so much luck with ours. The lining disintegrated...

I plan to swap the rear side with on from front side since curtains are barely visible through rock guards anyway.

I guess it's time to find some new ones!

Your overhead fans look very nice. Each person can control if they need some extra air. What brand are they and how did you wire them.
Sorry for the Segway. Thanks

Yes, those fans are lifesavers at times. I learned about them from this YouTube video. This fellow is very good and Iíve picked up a bunch of knowledge from his videos.
