Awnings and Very Cold Weather

We had an awning cover put on over our slide-out and I got to wondering if cold weather was a factor when putting it in and out. Like, should it be above 20 degrees or so so it doesn't crack or anything?

So I asked the smartest RV guy I know (Randy, at my dealer) and he said he's never been asked that, before, but will contact the awning manufacturer to see what they say about that.

I'll let you know!

No there is no problem at all. Last year I had a 1/4" of ice on it and didn't know it. When I brought the slide in the ice just cracked and fell off. I have never had a problem.
