You could wrap a couple of tie down straps around the entire trailer. Just pad (some old mouse pads might work) where they would rub the rubber roof at the edges. Use gorilla tape around the hooks where the strap ends hook together. This should prevent wear holes in the roofing and scuff marks in the walls.

an update, we took the unit back to the dealer and they fixed it on our way to a 4 day stop at Bottomless lakes state park where we used the awning each day without issue. Our dealer, Bison RV Clovis, NM has been great with making sure we are happy.
