Small holes on Zip Dee awning

Hello fellow Airstreamers.
I am a full timer and just saw several small holes on my awning near where it attaches to the body of the Airstream.

I have a 2019 25FB Globetrotter.
We have had a very wet, damp summer in Fort Mitchell, AL.
I always retract the awning if I am leaving even for the shortest errand.
Has anyone had issues like this with their awning? Please see pictures added.
Any ideas of how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

We had similar holes. Seems to be caused by minor debris on the awning when retracting and it gets caught between the awning and the plastic tape on the skin under the awning. I bet if you inspect the plastic tape you will see tears and scapes where the holes are located
