Backup oops.

Backing up the TT along side the house after a great weekend of camping and clipped the corner of the house eve and tore two very small holes in the awning, damn it! Anyway thinking some Gorilla tape, black, to patch the snag? Trying not to spend a bag of cash by replacing the awning.
What do you folks think, this work or any other ideas besides replacing the awning?
Second question, ideas on how to cover the awning, it's a tight fit between the house and awning so I don't do this again. Click image for larger version

Too repair the holes I would get a 3M vinyl repair kit from Walmart or an auto parts store and use it. I used it to repair a motorcycle seat, it works great,

Looks like light damage, you may be able to find repair tape that matches the color.

As for covering the awning, I think some folks have used plastic gutters.

I'd get Gorilla or 3m vinyl repair tape and run it down the entire length of the awning.... like a racing stripe. Make sure it's exterior grade.
Then I'd probably try to cushion the eave of the house. Perhaps a temporary pool noodle before you back up.... or a good helper to watch that awning as you back up.

They make a rip stop tape for tent repair. Maybe it would be best.

TEAR-AID type B (green box) is what you need. I used it 5 years ago and it is still holding tightly.Click image for larger version

Think I can picture how this would work, need some detail on how to attach the gutter to the awning. Off to search the forum. Thanks jfkmk.
