Black mould appears around door and below roof canvass. Where aliminium and fibreglass meet below roof canvass (roof vents.)

Of Clean green .

Maak net seker as jy dit klaar skoon gemaak het dat dit weer oorgeseel moet wees.

I cleaned mined 2 weeks ago with a soft cloth and mineral turps. Works wonderful.
Ons drink uit die piering want ons koppie loop oor.

With the soft cloth cloth and turps it was not necessary to reseal the caravan. It only removes the mold and not the sealer.

The mould you are refering to is actualy greasy stuff (Basically sealant vapour) if you could call it that, that sweat out due to heat and then dust sticks to it. This heat is caused by generally the sun and it happens over time.  It in general does not come off with soap water.

This is a good indication that the sealant of your van is deteriorating and you should concider to re seal your van in the near future.

It is fairly easy to remove the greasy substance. As suggested make use of parafin or turpentine on a cloth and you will find that it wipes away easily.      BUT

Parafin and turpentine are generally an enemy to this sikaflex and will loosen the sealant with a little bit of rubbing.  So I would also suggest that you leave this cleaning to be done at the time when you are ready to reseal your van.

Please note that a quick wipe with parafin to remove the grime is enough to speed up the deterioration of the sealant.  Because the parafin attacks the binding of the sealant to the pannels.

Terpentyn sal nie verf beskadig nie

WAARSKUWING:

Kampeer is aansteeklik en verslawend 😁

Verf sal niks oorkom nie. MOET NET NIE THINNERS GEBRUIK NIE

Parafien dink ek is so effe goedkoper as terpentyn.  Ek het nog net parafien gebruik vir die taak.
