Can the awnings be disconnected in order that you can clean any debris that may get underneath the awning?

I have never had any debris under the awning. If you did there is enough room to run a broom between the awning and roof of the slide.

X2, or in an emergency you can run the slide in and then use a wet/dry vac on the inside. Not ideal, but...

Have one on our slide and love it! Just beware the deluge of water off the edge when retracting the slide after a rain as they tend to collect water!

Our first camper didn't have a slide topper. The next, we ordered it with them. And if we get another in the future, it'll have them also.

Slides are now cleaner, better shaded in the full sun, and no water surprises when you retract.

They do flap in the wind. It has to be pretty stiff. 10-15 mph most likely you won't hear a thing. We just went through 20-30 mph winds last week in New Orleans and they flapped like crazy.

I've not heard mine flapping until the winds get up to about 25 or 30 MPH. Then again, I sleep pretty soundly!

We ordered them for our 3 slides and after seeing the debris that rolls off when we slide them in, we I'm glad we did.

We have experiencesd some flapping in the past and especillay on the largest of the slides. BUT...this past weekend we were camped on lake michigan when som storms blew through and it sounded like a freight train.

Anyone out here ever expecieced a failure due to high wind?

I just had them added to my new Crusader and we camped on lake Ontario last weekend and it was windy but the awnings didn't flap at all. Might not have been enough wind or we just got lucky with the angle the wind was blowing. It was far to windy to have the main awning out though.
