Both awning pull loops broke in the same week

Is this a notorious problem or a possible case of dry rot? I have an 09 27FB and last week the pull out loop (where you catch it by the hook to pull and retract) broke loose on the smaller side awning. I had someone come repair it yesterday and darn if the other side didn't break an hour after. It could be the stitching had dry rotted?

A common issue?

Try not to put the awnings up wet. If you have to be sure and open to dry soon as possible.
