We were in some very stiff winds in Death Valley area a couple of weeks back. Besides having an EGR valve failure causing Limp Home Mode and being towed into Las Vegas from Pahrump for that warranty repair, the awning tried to self deploy due to the wind with the auto retract feature trying to auto retract. The result is stripped gears in the motor. The awning is now Velcro strapped and duct taped to hold it in place until we can find a repair. The duct tape is a pretty good match for Airstream Silver.
We are currently in San Antonio, will head to South Padre, then back up the Coast with a diversion to Waco, then back to the Gulf Coast to head east. Are there any recommendations for a Fiamma repair facility located generally along our route?
