Kevin and Prim,
Skye and I left our awning up and went a mile or so down to the river at Pedernales Falls State Park (TX). Horrible wind hit and I knew we were on trouble. When we got back the awning was still attached but check out the bracket. I think the only reason it was still on the trailer was we had ratcheted it down to stakes in the ground.
Luckily, there were perfect trees for "SLOWLY" working the support arm back into shape. And you gotta luv doing repairs on site.
But I still think there may be some internal damage to the Zip Dee, seems to have a bit more slop when unrolling and rolling it up.
Never again we will leave it up when we leave, and I like the advice of rolling it up at night.
