While we had a calm day, we washed the awning, again. It was mildewed again - every time it rains, water seeps in from the ends, so it's dripping when we open it. Using a Magic Eraser mop and dish washing detergent worked as well as the more irritating spray awning cleaners, so we'll stick with that method. Removed the tube for the sewer hoses, it had "ears" on it which rubbed the paint off on the back. Courtenay sawed off the ears, and moved the mounting back an inch to prevent further damage.
