Cleaning & Repair RV Trailer Cover tarps

Finally removed the winter cover over my 18 ft trailer. It's suffered a few tears (60 - 80 mph winds are common here on the coast) and the edges around the bottom of the cover are soiled from beating against the ground in our winter storms. This was our first winter doing this. Now I am looking for advice on the best way to clean this cover and repair the tears it suffered. TY

I think I would try laying it flat on one side in your driveway. Using your, or a rented, pressure washer with a fairly strong laundry soap solution, spray down the dirty places and let it soak for a few minutes, then rinse. Then turn it over and do the other side.
Those are my first thoughts.

Trailer cover

Good. Got the pressure washer. Probably use a lower setting, though. Need to fix the tears afterward.

Just cleaned my CalMark cover. Man those things are heavy when wet. I draped mine over my town vehicle, Highlander. Washed with Dawn and hot water, outside only, let dry and put back on the trailer. Looks purdy now, as only a grey trailer cover can! I had thought about taking it to a commercial machine but was told by CalMark, NO Way, it would damage the material.

Yup. Hand washing

is what I found when I googled the subject. It is a beast of a thing to lug around. Oh well. Gotta be done.

I know I should hand wash the cover in the early spring months while it is still on the Scamp but I'm often too impatient. I just want to rip that cover off and go camping and the heck with a clean cover!
