Boy it has been windy here in MN. Last night as I slept in our 27RBS a loud tapping woke me several times. Couldn't figure it out til this morning when I realized it was the awning pull down strap beating against the side in the wind. I know I can tuck it in, but that is a pain since I have to find something to stand on to reach it. Anyone else have another solution?

The awning strap should slide out the end of the channel and you can stow it. I multitask with mine and use it to tie the entry door to the awning strut to hold it open.

Wouldn't leave the awning open in a good wind though.

I may be wrong, but I took it you had your awning up and had a few inches of strap left. What may work is to position the strap above the door so it closes in the door and won't slap the side of the camper.

You are indeed right. The awning was shut (I never leave it open at night). And your idea is ingenious. I will try it, thanks!

,like the strap could hit the side from being extended

When I roll my awning up, I start with the strap close to the end and walk it towards the middle. This takes up the extra length, and keeps me from having a buldge where the strap is rolled up.
I'm not saying this is the right way to do it, it's just the way that I do it. Besides, I have enough bulges.


Happy camping,

Gary
