I'm Not a Weak Woman and Can't Pull My Awning In By Myself-RAINING-OK?

Question: I am used to having someone around to help pull awning in and out, but it started raining late and my son or brothers not around or anyone for that matter, to help me pull awning in-It's raining, steady, but not hard. I did lower the one side to allow for runoff-I'm very nervous. Do I have to pull awning in each time it rains? Uggn

wish I was strong

Robbie: You do not need to close your awning when it rains, just lowering one side to allow the water to run off will work fine. Please be careful because often with rain comes wind and this could cause more damage than the rain.

There are awnings on the market that operate from a switch inside your RV to open and close and will automatically lower itself when it rains by using a gas strut.

Good Luck,
