Hole in brand new awning.

So we finally got to get out and use the Roo this weekend. We had great fun! I noticed a small hole in the awning when I pulled it out. What is the best method of patching this so it does not get bigger and trash my fabric. This was the second time I have pulled the awning out.

Any vinyl tape would work...you may even find the correct color.

how did this occur? did something sharp get caught in it, when you rolled it up?

Hey guys, I am assuming its a problem from the factory as it was my second time bringing it out. The first time was in my driveway where there are no trees. This second time there were no branches anywhere near where the hole is.

I should have taken pictures, it's near the front of the trailer about 1' away from the side of the trailer.

Here is a picture of the small hole. Not quite sure about this one. I just find it strange there were no branches and it seems it would be slightly stretched around the hole if it was poked by something.

I am gonna look for a vinyl tape that was recommended, or a patch kit. May call Dometic about it and see what thy recommend.

I had a similar situation with a brand new Shamrock 23SS two years ago. Same size hole just a couple inches from the side of the camper. The dealer replaced the awning under warranty.

Take close up photo, notify dealer, make appointment to get it replaced
when it's convenient for you.
I wouldn't want tape on MY brand new awning no matter if it matched or
not!!
