We just got an 8528ikws with dual awnings. Brought it home and covered it for winter. Haven't spent one night in it yet. I have been thinking of ways to connect the awnings myself. I have considered the snap route and Velcro. I thinks snaps could be placed on the awning rollers and at the rv body, then Velcro for hooking the awning fabric itself together.
Another thought was to have the fabrics overlap some and stitch some kind if clamp to the removable fabric piece and attach them that way.
On the 8528ikws there is also the dining slide topper to deal with too.
I'm getting itchy to get this winter done so I can start my mods. We leave for Myrtle Beach on the 17th of April and I still have to install the hitch in the new truck and get my Progressive wired in surge suppressor installed.
I'm interested in any other thoughts and ideas for awning mods so keep 'em coming lol.
If and when I do anything I'll post pics.
There's too much stupid in this world.
