Rain and wind bring your awnings in!

This is why you bring your Awning in when itís going to storm or winds are going to be gusty. A neighboring camp site is going to have a surprise when they return. We had high winds 40+ and thunderstorm warnings with tornadoes about 45 miles away.

Couldn't agree more.
I've done exactly what you do since wife and I started camping in 1992 and have never had an issue.

Sometimes people just "forget" to run it in when they leave.

Ok so there is more that happed so let the show begin lol. So in their defense they were college age kids . So the list continues with these guys. They had a water leak and turns out they never put the anode rod back in the water heater so that was entertaining to watch them figure that out. They also after the wind and rain issue with the awning they tried to start a fire. We watched for 2 hours and still no fire. We even offered them dry wood and fire starters but they refused the help. Needless to say we had some good laughs that day/night 🤣🤣

The Internet.

Someone posted that they always leave their awnings out and have never had a problem.
