Packing up in the rain
Yes, we have all done it. It can be miserable at times if the rain doesn't let up. Most of us will have awnings that get rolled up soaking wet. That means opening the unit up again as soon as possible to get it dried out as soon as possible to avoid the "dreaded mildew". We were out last weekend with not a drop of rain when setup. The morning we headed out, lying in bed you hear that distinctive pitter patter of raindrops on the roof! Crap!!!! I know from past experience that mildew will start to develop within hours, especially in the heat. If you get at the staining early, most products will remove it.
So just wondering, are the vinyl awnings on the newer units better at resisting mildew stains? Any experiences with unrolling awnings that have been locked up with Mother Nature's moisture?
