Plexiglass cleaner caution
I have been having very good results just cleaning the canopy with a mixture of Dawn dish washing detergent and water. I use two microfiber cloths one soaked with a Dawn + distilled water solution and another to dry off the canopy. I also would suggest wiping in one direction only (with air flow) to avoid any swirls in the plexiglass.
That said, if you feel you must use a plexiglass cleaner please take heed ... not all of the plexiglass cleaners are compatible with the acrylic rear window installed on the older RV-12's so you must read the label VERY closely. Of course, if you have the new plexiglass rear window installed in place of the acrylic window, then disregard this paragraph.
Correction: As Joe so eloquently pointed out in post #14 I've reversed the names of the materials used on the front and rear windows on the older RV-12's. However, the point I was making still rings true ... some of the Plexiglass cleaners are NOT compatible with both polycarbonate and Acrylic materials so read the labels very carefully..
