Smile Hi

Finally found where I can say something. My husband Ron and I are also new to the Forum. We found out about it at the FROG rally in Goshen in August. We are now in Nellis AFB in Las Vegas. After leaving the rally, we traveled to Yellowstone. When we came back to the RV one day, our awning lay on the ground!!!! This was our second one, the first one having been blown off while we were still at home in PA. We've learned a valuable, and expensive, lesson. Never leave the awning out when leaving for a few hours!!!!

If you have a automatic awning you could benefit from awning tie down poles.

Welcome to the forum.

Hi, JuJu. Welcome to the forum. Are you guys stationed at Nellis AFB, or just camping there?
