I recently stumbled across an article (somewhere) on the internet talking about the awning coming "unfurled" while driving down the road. Has anyone had this happen, or were they probably just trying to sell something?
We use small bungies on the arms as high up as I can reach. They're cheap, so we replace them every season. Been doing that for years. Never had a problem. There are kits available to lock the fabric down, but we've never used them. In 25+ years of RVing, we've only personally seen one case where the awning came apart on the road. And the whole trailer looked kinda raggedy.
