fabric awning leaks through material

On the weekend it rained steady and I had my awning out. I notice everything under it was soaked and it was leaking through the awning in most places. Is there a treatment for water repelling or do I need new awning.

Lets try scotchguard.


This worked for me on an old awning that I never replaced before getting rid of the trailer.

Another product I just came across is Thompson's fabric seal, don't know how well that one works but if the advertisement is true, you're in luck..

Lots of choices for a waterproofing solution - I use 303 Fabric Guard myself. Some other products that work include Camp-Dry, Scotchguard Outdoor Water Seal, Nikwax, Starbrite Waterproof, etc.
