    In between a couple camping trips and work, I've been slowly fixing, up-dating, modifying, and cleaing my 2000 Niagara. After checking the Sunbrella web site for some guidance, Sunday morning I tackled washing the canvas which was fairly dirty. Sunbrella says mix 1/2 cup Woolite with a gallon of water and after wetting a section scrub with a soft bristle brush, let set up to 15 minutes and then rinse. Am happy to report that it really did a nice job of cleaning and brightening the canvas. Looking better every day!

    was it hard to remove your canvas? I may do this while mine is being painted , no chance of overspray on canvas that way. Was your canvas completely dry before you put it back on? Should it be put on while still some what wet?

    Washed the canvas with it on the pup. I made sure all the canvas flaps were up and made sure I didn't hose upwards under the roof overhang letting water in around the lift posts and was careful around the door and had no leaks inside. The canvas behind the screens didn't get as good a cleaning as all the exposed canvas, but they weren't as dirty. I don't want to remove the canvas until I have to replace it!
