I totally agree with you on the weight issue. I was sitting under my awning while it was raining and all at once one side dipped down and dumped the water off.... as I was told it is supposed to do.
imo, adding such weight on the awning canvas and support arms is asking for big trouble. Now, the question is, where to go for good quality after market awning support poles?
