The whole clean awning thing - as my wife would say "anal". LOL!

Another 15 minute downpour and the awning is dry inside. Boy I hope these don't flop in the wind going down the highway.

Winner

Think you may have something here, been wondering what and how to do the same thing, if you have some more photo's, shoot them to me, might try it on the Crusader.
The Check Valve for my condensation fix came in wrong from RV Country, sending the correct one tomorrow, everything else looks great.

It worked good on a 1/2" rain, but will leave them un-attached until we get a heavier rain before deciding whether to paint them and anchor the hinges permanently.
