Awning leaks

I have an awning that has a hard cover at the top to protect it . I hope my pics show up , so you all can see where I'm talking about. It is the seam where the stitching up close to the top where the awning connects to the hard cover . Can I put something on the top side that will hold to the fabric and the hard cover? Any help would be great. Thanks Click image for larger version

Leak

Hello, there was a thread about this awhile ago. I have a couple of leaks in mine in the same place. Someone had pretty good luck with the paint-able clear Flex Seal applied on the top side. I haven't tried it yet, but it's on my to do list. Do a search - there's some info about it on here. Hope this helps

back in the early days of being a tent camper we used to have to seal the seams. The product is still available, seam sealer for tents. Google it. Probably just what you're looking for

I've also used a VERY LIGHT bead of Lexel on the seam.
