Shadepro. www.shadepro.net. Not cheap but made specifically for electric awnings. Section shown rolls up with awning (slides into awning tube slot and velcro'd in place) and there is a 4 foot add on section (zippers on) that comes with it plus storage bag. We like it.

Somewhat related, I'm curious as to the reasoning of why some folks feel the need to put jack pads and even blocks underneath the leveler feet when on a relatively level concrete site. Theories?

I was just thinking about that yesterday, guy next to me has 2EA 4X4 blocks under all 4 corners of his TT, smooth flat & level concrete pads. Seems an odd thing considering anything between the steel pad and the ground is only going to add instability.

Some high end RV parks I have stayed at require pads or blocks be used on their concrete or paver sites. Otherwise I only use them for very uneven sites.

Interesting. I can't fathom the purpose on concrete. Totally understand on soft surfaces and asphault.

I have been to some parks that did require blocks to be used even though the site is concrete. However; the blocks were only required under stabilizers and levelers that had a very small footprint (some don't have pads). They can cause damage to the site (gouge marks). No blocks were required under my Lippert levelers which have an 8" footprint.

I seem to recall reading somewhere on this forum that the less the jacks are extended, the less rocking...Blocks could be used for that reason, I guess.

Thats what I've heard too. The less the legs are extended the less movement. We use railroad tie blocks with our camper

There is a reason I bought auto levelers. Pull in, push the button, forget about it. I've never had a problem. Sometimes my wheels come off the ground and sometimes they don't. Doesn't bother me either way.

X3

I always use nice large blocks on every surface anyway. Just a habit. And, it keeps the jack extend to a min. Don't have auto level so I am out several times to check jack positions. Not really a big deal..
