A/C rust stains on the pup fabric

My friend has a 2004 Fleetwood pop up and the A/C has stained the fabric with rust where it has dripped off the roof. We want to remove it so he can sell it but am not sure what to use. Concern about the waterproofing is important. I have read about lemon juice but if anyone has better information then PLEASE help us out. Thanks for any qualified replies and happy trails!

I just bought a 2003 Jayco Kiwi 21c. It a hybrid. Both ends fold down to form queen beds. Any how, the inside of each ends tent fabric was stained with mildew from being stowed without proper drying first. We asked the dealer to clean it in detail after our PDI. Upon delivery, or pick up, they hadn't done it. So we complained and they gave us a bottle of a product called Insta Gone. It cost $28. a bottle at their price. It varies depending on where you shop. You spray it on and 5 minutes later you wipe it off. The stain is gone! Follow the directions carefully and by the letter though. It is like concentrated bleach or something similar. The parts department at the dealership recommended it.

Here is their website InstaGone Stain Remover I too have a hybrid with a little mildew stains on the underside of the bulk ends. Used some bleach water, which did about 50% reduction, but this InstaGone might do the trick to finish the job.

A/C has stained the fabric with rust where it has dripped off the roof.
Maybe try some Simply Green cleaner too. I used that when we had a PUP....
