Misty Mate on a camper awning

I've found a product called Misty Mate at my local Tractor Supply. It comes in various lengths from 10 to 30 feet. It has small nozzles that emit a fine mist that supposedly drops the ambient temperature in the immediate vicinity by 30 degrees F. I was thinking about attaching it to the awning (in a temporarily fashion so it can be removed quickly when it's time to break camp).
Has anybody used this product? What were your results? How much water does it go through (dry camping will require bringing in the water)? Is it easy to put up and take down at each campsite?

I used ours for the first time this weekend. I used a splitter on the city water outlet, and ran a seperate water hose to the mister. We have a seperate tent awning, and ran the mister loosly thru the awning frame. It worked great and drew a crowd as temps were at 100 degrees. We did not get soaked bud did get damp and it did cool down the tempature quite a bit. The box says it will drop the temp 30 degrees.

I was just looking at some similar products today on Amazon. We had the trailer out for the first time this weekend and we sure could have used it as temps were 105 plus.

My only concern for me is connecting it to the awning. Since our awning is electric I am nervous about attaching anything since we have to close it any time we leave for an extended period or with any weather.

I have seen the "stand" misters that are free standing so maybe that could work.

Camping world was selling these also I believe they had the clips to mount them, similar to the rope lighting mounts.

Interesting find. On some days you'd have the most popular site in the campground.

I installed an Aero Mist 300psi mister this past weekend on my awning. Simply used clothes pins to attach the tubing to the front flap of the awning, and pointed the misters down and out. Worked great! If I need to close awning in a hurry, I just grab the end of hose and pull. Comes right off, clips and all. Takes longer to remove and hang lights back up.

After some more thought, I am going to attach my future set like ttrost65. The set I am ordering off of Amazon even comes with some little clips to hang off an awning or umbrella.

I think hanging them off of the awning will supply the best cooling. I also plan on installing the over so popular, at least on this board, string of LED lights on my trailer just below the awning.
