Awing Cover While Stored

My Solera sits outside next to the garage when we are not traveling. I don't like the idea of having the awnings exposed to the sun here in Florida during this storage period. I have been thinking of a way to have a removable cover for the awnings and thought of using vinyl rain gutter. Thought I was being original until I found this on the web.



This is my project for the day.

Meant to title "Awning Cover While Stored".

Job complete and should work great. I have a 24R and the rear bedroom slide does not have a rain gutter, but an easy fix. Heated the rear gutter section (back) enough to bend out slightly. Tucked it under the rear clearance lights and held in place with elastic bungee across the top.

Do it all the time....If you have the underneath 5" storage tubes, the gutter(s) can also be used to support sewer hose, or act as a drawer for the tubes

Sure glad someone found the 5" pvc post covers and caps. I hear they are not available in Washington state.
