I found a thread about awning protection in these forums. There are some products out there to protect the awning, some better and easier to deal with than others. I agree, it would be nice if Columbus offered and awing cover since that is one item that really takes a beating when the trailer is in storage without a cover. I am planning to get a cover for my new trailer. it is a pain to deal with before each trip, but I have experienced the damage that the sun inflicts on the outside of the trailer in as little as two years and I don't want to experience it again.

I agree with all of you on the awning covers. Our Cedar Creek Daydreamer had metal wraps that covered all the awnings including the slide out toppers. I wish the Columbus had the same feature.

I talked to the Columbus factory rep a couple of days ago concerning the color of my patio awning. I hope that he can get the build sheet and it will show the color, so I can match the color for my window awnings I plan to buy. I also asked him about the lack of any kind of weathershield. Dometic shows 2 different power awnings. The weather pro, (which we don't have) and the Model 9100. The manual included with the trailer for the awning does not specify the model #. I asked him if Palomino ordered a "special awning". He said as far as he knew the awnings were off the shelf from Dometic. If this were the case, I would think that we would have a manual stating the awning was a 9100, which would in fact have a weathershield. It would either be a vinyl or metal. I don't understand but I will see what he comes up with.

If at time of placing order you want upgrades such as awning covers , ask your dealer about cost. Also the dealer should be able to tell you what the color is

Welcome to the forum !


TURBS
I looked at the roller but there are no numbers to tell the color. I did make contact with a factory rep and he said he would get back to me, but that was 2 weeks ago and no response. I find it hard to believe that there is not a build sheet for each trailer detailing exactly what was used. On my last 5th wheel I needed some info and would give them the vin and they could tell me anything I wanted to know. I guess I will have to just try and match the color the best I can. I will however be getting metal weathershields on these window awnings!

I can't get my awning far enough out to get my tag numbers. I just tried.
The tag will just have part numbers it will not say anything about color.
Is there a sticker on the roller with numbers? There should be.
Take those numbers on tag and call your dealer he will be able to tell you color .
