Up off the ground finally....but!

Hello....We just purchased a 94 Starcraft popup. Everything looks great inside except for the filth left by years of neglect... men used for hunting) but I can see through that. Any suggestions on how to clean the canvas? We are talking inside as well as out, without loosing the waterproofing that was said was put on when first bought. Also, where is a good place on line to purchase accessories like Stair pull out, and mics filters for AC/Furnance? I've got a job ahead of me with the cleaning .....but thankful that it won't be till next year that we use it. Thanks and GOD BLESS. The Pittsburgh Angel.

Cleaning canvas

Instructions from my PU manual for cleaning tenting:
"Hose down and clean with a mild solution of Dreft laundry detergent or Woolite fabric cleaner in water. Rinse thoroughly to remove soap. Dilute as follows:
Dreft - dissolve two tablespoonfuls in one cup of water (no more than 100 deg F) for spot cleaning
Dreft - dissolve 3/4 cup in washing machine (no more than 100 deg F) to wash entire tent section.
Woolite - Dissolve one capful per gallon of water (cold water only) for spot cleaning
Woolite - Dissolve 1/4 cup in washing machine (cold water) to wash entire tent section."
If canvas leaks treat with a water repellant such as 303 High Tech Fabric Guard.
Always let canvas dry thoroughly before closing camper.

For the outside try a product called "Gel-Gloss". It is both a cleaner and a wax. It works wonders on oxidation and grim. You will find it at RV and boat stores. It will come in a white and pink jug. When we had our 99' Coleman pop-up I used a product called "Simply Green" on the textured ABS roof. You spray it on and use a stiff scrub brush.
