Leaves falling. Blew into forest. Grass too burnt to cut. That is summer! Close down the park model in early October

As ependydad said, wind is a power awnings worst enemy. The gas pistons are there to absorb some wind buffeting & allow water to "dump" off during heavy rains. But, unless the awning system is equipped with wind sensors which will automatically retract it in say (25 - 30 mph?) winds, expensive damage can result. I have seen awnings get tossed up on the roof (bending the arms), torn, and even pulled from the track at the top. Most of the time, this damaged happened when the owners were away and a storm came up.

We always check the weather for the day or just roll it up if we leave for any length of time or distance. We came close to loosing one once and learned from that experience.

Shed some weight- modified a desk to take off 1/2 of it, picked through some unused stuff, and keep telling myself that I'm going to tackle the basement next...

Ironically, I have tools with me that I've haven't used and at least 1 thing that I wished I had brought.
