Default Re: Awnings and wind

Unfortunately, in the all-too-sunny south, the awning is often a daytime necessity. I still wonder why none of the bigger trailers seemed to have difficulty with this particular windstorm. All those rigs had their awnings out with poles firmly planted in their brackets. But it seems like their hardware is gutsier than the Fiamma, which advises: 'in case of wind, close awning.'

While sitting through 4 days of extreme heat/humidity up here in the northeast, I am
completely sympathetic with the need for a shady spot to relax.
I agree, the Cs and As must have tougher awnings and hardware systems, in keeping with
the size and stature of them.
Seems like no matter how careful you are with these things, Mother Nature often finds a way to have some
fun at our expense!!!

It's not a sprint(er) (unless you make it one), it's (hopefully) a marathon.
