Thanks for that trick. I was at myrtle last week when Ana came ashore. My awning cover was full until I closed the slide in. Nice trick on the tighter wind.

We bought a 2015 Sabre 5th Wheel in December and for the first time had Toppers put on all the slides. While snowbirdding in Florida the water ponded on the one slide out right at the point where I sit in my lazy boy chair inside. The squeak, squeak, squeak - like a trapped animal was squeeling up there!! DH went up to the roof and brushed the water out with a broom, no more squeak!! Our dealer told us to put styrofoam under there or the beach ball idea sounds more doable
