You pull the inside cover of roof vent down, pull the light fixtures down and feed the wire above the ceiling paneling and under the insulation. Just like the factory does. Most of the wires lay on the top of the ceiling paneling and under the Styrofoam insulation.

What are you talking about? In the South, those are removable stumps from rubber trees!

No way we aren't THAT redneck Weezer

This is our first time at this RV park - it had a decent rating so we thought nothing of it...guess we needed to know WHO was rating 😝

Oh And we caught a couple of 2lb bass

All that looks great a lot of work, oneday people will learn not to install manual flappers that pull that awning down no matter what OC'S said. Time will tell. Other then that your poles look really nice.

There areas way out in the boonies where they throw their old tires on top of their mobile homes to keep the metal roofs from rattling in the wind. I guess that's why they do it? Never stopped to ask. Might have a STILL around back and I don't wanna get shot. /snark

Thought maybe you had "roof noise" issues.

De flappers have been used for years. What makes the difference which direction the material is pulled?

Because of the stretch. You know that as well as me. Pulling tight straight across as designed to use is not the same as pulling down which they were not designed to do. Set your awning right and you don't really have any problems. They were designed for manual awnings. You can see the stretch already. But that is just my opinion. To each there own......Also as the wind catches it, it will stretch the material even more. But what ever works for people. You showed me that before and said I was dumb to give mine away. That fabric is unforgiving. Once it is stretched it is stretched. You will still have some flopping no matter what. I just think it's a bad idea to pull down and not across as designed to do.

I pull it tight with the ratchet straps and don't really pull that much with the de-flappers and bottom line, they aren't on that long. In fact, I've never had to use them yet. Just gotta give you something to gripe about. Go back to sleep! You're way past your nap time.

guess mine will be back in the shop. just picked it up last weekend from the shop for warrant work. one of the items was to replace the awning lights. 2nd time under warranty. camped over the 4th and 1/3 of the new lights aren't working.
Also i have a strange issue that has happened since day one. When i turn on the lights over the sink or in the bathroom the hd tv screen freezes. kind of like you hit the pause. turn off the lights and tv starts working again
