Awning mod

I kind of got tired of how perfect my awning looked so a mod was in order, first I tried scraping it off with a tree, then I had to remove the remaining bits & pieces to complete the mod. DW was not pleased with the results of the mod, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Welcome to the club. There are many ways to damage awnings, yours is not original, try again.

Kinda figured I wasn't a charter member of the club, don't know how many deductibles I can manage, think I'll try and make this a one off.

Back in 07 we all were sitting under our 20 foot awning when a gust of wind came up and flipped the awning right over on top of the roof. BANG !!!!

Scared the willy out of me..

Glad to hear I'm not the only one tired of a perfect RV. Never really liked those entry steps folding so conveniently into that cavity. So just leave 'em out as you pass a tree (probably the same kama-kazi tree as mlwilliams ) and instant "customized" steps.

It works on tow vehicles as well! Backed my F-350 into a telephone pole. After all; it's not like those rear view cameras, big tow mirrors, and back-up sensors really do any good anyway.

I did the same thing to my steps, except I used my daughters car as the anchor point.

I have done that with my F350. I can't get used to the back-up camera and when that annoying beeping starts I always look in the wrong giant mirror. (three times now)

Yeah after all the beeping is just a warning. The crunch tells you when to stop! I don't know why wives never seem to understand that. Just too technical for females I guess!
