So this it so far, Progressive says we will fix both canopies with a $500 deductible. The big roller seems to be fine. All new fabric on both and new arms on the big one. Stay tuned.

Go electric (if you're already isn't)...Cost me about $1000 all in for a used power awning but I freaking love it...and when it gets to windy it just rolls itself in =) I'm going to have the one over the entrance door replaced with power soon too. If you camp often, more so if you move from place to place often in one trip, the time they save is worth it alone...but when you combine that with the peace of mind knowing that if you leave the RV to go out to dinner and the wind picks up that you won't be coming back to a disaster at the campsite....even more worth it.

What we love about our AS is that it is so mechanical not electric. We do not use the canopy that often..it just has been hot and the shade was wonderful here in KY at Amazon. It was not unattended..I was out under it when this 4 minute storm came up. On your motor home I totally understand. Different strokes different folks. I hope this insurance is for real to get new canopies on both sides..we shall see.

We still hand crank our stabilizers.

Went to Louisvlle, KY today to Louisville RV a ZipDee dealer. They measured and measured. Checked out the rafter arms and ordered all the parts and material for 2 awnings. Even changed to the stripes at no extra charge. Hope it truly works out this way. Will keep you posted.

Check for proper tension on spring which rolls up the fabric. Check function of the "latch"'on the roller. Check the "key" fabric where the awning attaches to the roof.

Check that you can deploy and recover the awning safely a few times. The practice won't hurt and you will debug it.

Ensure the rivets parts are good,, that there is a good seal between roof and mount points.

Check the "locking" components are working properly...look along side the AS and ensure the ZipDee is not bent out of toward the AS.
