OldCoot (OC) makes brackets and poles to support the awning when deployed. By using his kit you can then use straps to anchor the awning to the ground. The electric awnings are really nice but unfortunately not very sturdy during a windstorm. Here is a link to the thread:
Awning pole hold down kit
Turbs came up with a way to deploy and retract the awning using a remote control like you have for opening your car doors. That way you don't have to get up and walk to the RVs control center to push the switch. There's a link to that thread too somewhere but I don't have it handy.
