I assume you mean awning?
On the last rig I read the directions for my awning and found they wanted me to use a soap, not a detergent.

Brush on a mixture of Dawn soap and some bleach and roll up the awning and let stand 15mins then roll out and rinse with lots of water on both sides, let dry and will not hurt the side of MH.

I use Camco Awning cleaner. I spray it on, then roll up the awning for 15 minutes. After the 15 mins, unroll the awning and rinse off. Any stubborn stains I scrub with a long handled car wash brush.

Depends on the material.
If vinyl coated above works well.
If Sunbrella... woven fabric.. they recommend a mild soap... ivory or woolite brush in and roll up to soak. Bleach is ok for badly stained.
Rinse at least 2x- 3x let dry.
You will need to retreat for water repellancy. Sunbrella recommends 303 FABRIC GUARD. different than 303 aerospace protectant used for rubber & vinyl
