Awning retrofit 2019 International 25RBT

We are new Airstreamers with a 2019 International 25RBT. bought used. From the beginning the Zip Dee electric awning did not work. The dealer ordered and installed all new parts. However, after 3 months at dealer it still did not work. We were under the time crunch for our planned and much prepaid trip to Alaska, so we picked up the trailer with non-working awning.

In looking for alternatives, we ran across this website and ordered the "gigante" in blue whale print, extra set of poles and screw stakes. We fastened on edge of the 135" square NESO to the corners of the awning, set out the stakes and propped up the poles. This has worked great in 30mph winds over a few days and a pop-up thunderstorm. Not a rain shelter, for sure, but it held up with a little sag that went away after drying. The material is not UV resistant over a long period, but at ~200 for all the stuff we ordered, it has been a life saver to create some shade. See pics on next post? (I am new at this, sooo).
