Long bubbles in awning fabric

Ok so aside from several other problems we've had with our 2012 30WFKSS, we now have bubbles in the awning fabric. Is this anything to worry about? And yes I will be taking pictures as bringing it to our dealer. Really getting tired of this crap only had TT for 3mos.

You will need a new fabric under your warranty. The bubble is caused by the material that is starting to delaminate. Always something happening!

Bubbles in the fabric is defiantly not normal and a sure sign of delamination in my opinion. Hope it all works out for you.

Yes. My awning was pelted with hail and developed little holes that water could enter in. Water did. Now, I have little bubbles in places. Your awning us new, under warranty, and should be replaced.

Mine developed bubbles, took pictures, edited the pictures and circled the bubbles in red, sent to dealer, who sent to to factory. Got new fabric, under warranty, only one trip to dealer, 25 miles away. Waited while they changed it, just a couple hour job. Had it done before I would have made it home.
