Awning Center Supports

Hi All!!! New to this site. My wife and I purchased a new 2011 Wildwood 36 BH, I'm looking for suggestions about either one or two center supprts for the awning. It is LONG, and already we are noticing sag in the center when out. Not sure what brand to purchase. My wife and I are both teachers and we placed the trailer as a seasonal, so the awning will most likley be out for good once school ends. Any ideas are appreciated.

I have a center support on my awning. From what I was told from the service department that since i have an A&E awning they recommend a center support for awnings 20' and larger....You may know this but if your awning is open make sure you tie it down, if it gets windy you will have a large sail and believe me you will some damage to your camper.

You may want to rethink about (Deployed) at the site all season. One thing is weight from (Rain),you will have to have (Pitch) for runoff.The supports will need to be adjustable to achieve this. Dont forget about (Door rub). Youroo!!

To be safe, if it were me i would retract the awning when i am not there, but if you are there, tie the awning down when open.
