RV Experts tips  for extending the life of your RV awnings.

1. The first step to maintaining your awnings is to understand more about the different types of awning fabrics. Fabric used on RV awnings is one of two types, acrylic
or vinyl. Acrylic fabric is a woven cloth that lets air circulate through the fabric. This air circulation allows the fabric to dry quickly when it gets wet. Acrylic fabrics are
water repellent, but not waterproof. If you have experience tent camping you know that you should not  touch the underside of the tent when it’s wet. Touching the wet
fabric allows water to seep through the fabric. The same applies to an acrylic awning fabric. Vinyl awning fabric is mildew resistant, but not necessarily mildew proof.
Mildew can form on the dirt and dust that collects on the vinyl fabric. The mildew will be worse in high temperatures, high humidity and if the fabric is stored when it is
wet.

2. When you open the awnings for the first time each year, or if an awning has been stored for a while, you will need to inspect the awning fabric for any signs of
mildew or stains. Remember that vinyl awnings will mildew. To prevent dirt from embedding in the woven fabric of an acrylic awning fabric, you should simply hose the
fabric off on a routine basis. Avoid scrubbing acrylic awning fabric. Scrubbing can remove the water retardant finish. For stubborn stains, blot the approved cleaner on
the acrylic fabric with a sponge or soft cloth.

3. For more difficult stains or mildew on a vinyl awning fabric, use an after market commercial cleaner made just for awning fabrics. One method that seems to work
well is to spray the inside and outside of the awning fabric with the appropriate cleaner and then roll it up and let it sit for several minutes. This distributes the cleaner
over the entire surface of the awning fabric and allows the cleaner time to work. Open the awning and thoroughly rinse both sides of the fabric. It may be necessary to
scrub stubborn stains with a brush on a vinyl awning fabric before rinsing. You can clean the awning hardware with the same cleaner you use to wash the RV.

Note: Never use oil-based or abrasive cleaners on awning fabrics. Clean and thoroughly rinse both sides of the awning fabric. Carefully follow all awning and cleaner
manufacturer directions.

4. Inspect the awning fabric for any tears or excessive wear. While the awning is out, inspect the awning hardware. The bottom awning brackets support most of the
load from the awning. Check the lag screws in the awning brackets for secure mounting. Inspect the arm pivot holes for any enlarged holes or broken rivets in the
handles. Check for a warped roller tube. If the roller tube is warped it will be noticeable when you roll the awning out. Inspect the awning end caps for secure mounting
and any broken or loose rivets. Make sure the awning rail is securely mounted to the side of the RV.

Caution: Never attempt to remove the awning end caps. Spring tension can result in serious injury. Have any damaged or broken parts repaired before using the
awning.

5. In addition to cleaning and inspecting your awnings, there are a few things to keep in mind when using the awnings, especially the patio awning. Always lower one
end of the awning to allow for water runoff. The weight from water pooling on the awning fabric can cause extensive and costly damage. Any wind gusts over 20 miles
per hour can also cause extensive damage to the awning and to the motor home. Never leave the awning out unattended. If everyone is leaving the campsite, store
the awning in the travel position. When you go to bed, store the awning. Even when you are at the campsite you should use awning tie downs to prevent any sudden
damage caused by high wind gusts or a sudden storm. You have the option to position the awning arms straight down and stake them to the ground, but you will get
better support if they’re attached to the bottom awning brackets on the side of the RV. Remember, it is much easier to prevent damage to your awning than it is to
repair it.

6. Never store the awning when the fabric is wet. Allow enough time for it the fabric to dry completely, on both sides, before storing the awning.

7. Check with your RV insurance provider to make sure your RV awning is covered in the event of any damage. Some insurance companies require separate
As an RV owner one of the many items on your list of annual maintenance should be roof related cleaning and care. RVs come factory standard with either
aluminum, fiberglass, thermoplastic olefin (TPO) rubber, or ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber. While fiberglass and aluminum roofs are particularly
low maintenance, they increase the cost of your RV, and add a significant amount of weight to your vehicle. This leaves EPDM roofs the most standard in the
industry, particularly with small and lighter weight RVs. RV roof maintenance starts with identifying what kind of material is on your roof.

So how would you go about figuring out which type of RV roof you have? The best way is to find it in your owner’s manual, but we know that isn’t always an option. If
you can find it then it will state the type of roof material and even offer RV roof maintenance instructions

Tips to Get Your RV Ready for Summer:     •    Begin by cleaning and inspecting it from top to bottom, noting any damage.     •    Check the maintenance book and
records to determine what items were done prior to storage and what is due now.     •    Set tire pressures, check the fluid levels in the engine and genset,
differential and transmission.     •    Charge the batteries, clean the terminals and check electrolyte levels.     •    Flush out the freshwater and holding tanks.     •    
Check the air filter and replace if needed.     •    Remove any cobwebs or debris, and test the refrigerator and water heater

Before
After
  Hello folks my name is Jim Hargrove . I have been working on Rv's since 1985. I started at Camping World in El cajon CA.  years later I moved up to Oregon to work for
Monaco in the early 90,s. Enough of the cold weather I settled back in San Diego. I worked for Beaudry RV in San Marcos for ten year just before the great  recession
swallowed them up I started RV Expert Mobile Service in 2006.
    I work out of Santee CA. I service the San Diego area. I specialize in LP Appliances such as RV refrigerators, RV water heaters RV furnaces. I can replace roof top air
conditioners as well. I also can repair fresh water leaks and replace most RV toilets. I have most water fittings on my truck and can usually find the leak and repair it   
within the hour.
I also replace awning and awning fabrics. I stock most vinyl awning fabrics in lengths between 14 feet and 21 feet. In the color shades of blue, grey and brown. I can also
get maroon, green or checker flag. I use Dometic awning material.
 RV Expert mobile service can replace rubber roof material. We strip the roof, peeling off all the EPDM rubber roof material , vents and moldings. If there is wood
damage I can repair that as well. Then we roll out a new one piece of Dicor roofing system. Install all new vents and seal it up. The manufactures offer a 12 years
guarantee in the material and 5 years on the my labor. Don't be fooled by paying a company less money for a roll on liquid rubber just have the sun dry it out in 1 or 2
years then you are back to square one. We have replaced hundreds of rubber roof material and offer quality work at a reasonable price.
 I replace converters and batteries and offer some electrical trouble shooting.
Well thanks for reading the short version of my bio. Hope to here from you soon Please give us a ring at 619-889-5429
