I will roll it up if a high wind or storm is approaching. I keep it rolled out to act like a topper for the kitchen slide.

Thanks Everybody!

Always out during the day unless storms are in the forecast.

I have the old Dometic manual awning and we put it out and leave it unless high winds are forecast. We tie it to the ground and use a couple of sets of "de-flappers" It has been pretty stable through some decent winds. Always tilt one end to allow any rain to run off.
