    Lori & AndrewWhy didn't I think of that? Tips and Tricks:
    May 2, 2018So being new to RVing I am stressing over the electric awning and wind gusts. Just saw a video where they use awning tie downs. Any comments on this, recommendations, pros-cons?

      Bill and Betty May 2, 2018 I put tie downs on my awning but have a fast easy way to release in an emergency and don't go off for long.

      Steve & Diane May 2, 2018 I never leave with the awnings extended.  One never knows...

      Trailerite May 2, 2018 Mine allows for a little movement in light breezes, but probably still puts pressure along the top attachment. I only use tie downs if I'll be stationary for a while. Otherwise, I take in the awning when we leave the site or overnight. It makes me crazy...  more

        Lori & Andrew May 2, 2018 We would definitely not leave the awning out when not there. But the tie downs while we were there sounded like a good idea. Just didn’t know if it was common practice:) Thank you.

        Bill and Betty May 2, 2018 Well on a nice day with little wind a gust hit and lifted my awning I thought it had damaged it but I got it reset now I tie it down or role it up

      Liz & Jordy - TwoGalsGo May 2, 2018 Barb has some good stories about awnings being ripped off their RV’s, we only put ours out when we need the shade. Too many people use it to define their space, go off and leave it or leave it out trusting in tie-downs. No tie down will secure what is ess...  more

      TheClearyClan May 2, 2018 We have an electric awning. The manual states not to tie it down or hang things from it. It has a wind and temperature sensor. With the default settings the awning will close itself if the wind or gusts go above 18 MPH or the temperature drops to 32 F or ...  more

      Trailerite May 2, 2018 Being from Florida I take every opportunity to put out the awning. It helps the a/c by providing shade to one wall of the trailer, and it starts smelling pretty quickly when wet. Sad to say I've left it out when I shouldn't. Just been lucky so far. Tie...  more

      rdrcindy May 2, 2018 If you need shade awnings out (if not windy) if not awnings in, one less thing to stress about ?

      Mike and Hyesuk May 2, 2018 would never leave my awning out unattended. Auto retract systems are not reliabe.
    • Lori & Andrew
      The Rolling Stones May 2, 2018 We have the auto retract on our awnings. Very annoying as it can’t tell between 2mph and 200mph. There were times that we would be sitting under the patio awning, without a whisper of a breeze, and all the sudden it would zip closed. Best practice is to r...  more

      TerrinJoe May 22, 2018 Worst wind trip this past week.... awning went in & out frequently & would have been quickly trashed even with tie downs in some of those moments
